Well, things have gotten worse, cancer is now effecting my heart, I had a constant heart rate of 160bpm for 3 wks, spent a wk in hosp, they stablized it, but they think that a blood clot came from my lungs through my heart and did some damage, so now Im how on tons of meds and my wife has to give me injections that help protect from further blood clots or a stroke, Im on constant Oxygen, beside small tanks I have a 50' leash to get around the house, I had developed Edema, (extra 22lbs of fluid in my stomach legs and feet) but constantly drinking Cranberry juice is helping me shed that pretty quick,, I am going to start radiation treatments to reduce the tumor next to my lung and heart, but its not a definite that it will work, Wish I had some happier news, but thats whats up. Due to the fact that we still have one last Drive-in Theatre in NJ I was able to see the Star Trek movie the night I got home from the hosp,, couldnt miss that, lol.

Thank you for telling me honestly how you were doing. I wish you the best with all the treatments and hope they will work.

I will tell you as I have before how much I appreciate your efforts to keep this hobby possible. I have been making shrunken heads out of the Fright Factory molds and sewing them together to create a 3-D effect. Not sure I could do this without you and Dr. Goop out there making and selling Plasticraft Goop. I have appreciated all your advice and help with projects.

Best wishes,
Your Goop friend,
Joseph Jester

Hello Ed,

I have not been here, at this website for awhile, but after reading a few post, I wanted to say my thoughts & prayers are with you. I think I speak for everyone who stumbles across the GOOP forum ....we are all pulling for you!

now you mentioned seeing the new Star Trek film.... being a 60's Trek purist, & seeing the ladies on the bridge without Go Go boots, was most unsettling' Still, I'll give this movie a thumbs up!

BB
