DC was a Great Show, but came with a Hitch….

Posted by on Aug 10 2009, in Time Away

Hi Pen Fans!

The DC show was quite successful, certainly one of the best shows that I’ve ever been to. 

I had an outstanding time, but a hitch came along with it.

My wife had some abdominal pain throughout the entire show, which culminated in us leaving earlier than what we wanted to on Sunday.

After a long drive home and an ER visit late last night, we found that she needs to have her gall bladder taken out.

She will have a consult with a surgeon tomorrow morning, most likely going into surgery the same day.

Since the Edison Pen Co. is a one-man-show, I need to ask my clients to please be flexible with timelines and communication as a result.

I’m sure that my responsibilities as a husband and father will need to spill into my penmaking responsibilities in the next week or two.  We have family that can help with our four-year-old, but I’m sure that I’m still going to be taken out of the shop some and will be slowed down.

So I will be working in my studio as much as I can this and next week, but I have no idea at what rate.

Please bear with me through this event, as my productivity with pens and communication might be a little slower.

So far, it seems like this should be a routine procedure, but prayers are still appreciated.

Many thanks.
