You cast brass items?

Yes. Nothing overly large or complex. I make buttons, buckles, belt parts and other items for my business.

Think ALICE suspenders only made from leather and connecting only on the front of the body. The back straps connected to the haversack and clothing bag.

Nice, that way the haversack and sleeping roll could bang you in the kidneys all day long.

Sort of. They sort of hang under your arm because the other end of the strap hooks to the front. The blanket roll is higher, about your shoulder blades. My expirience with them is unusual because they weren't made for guys my size.

But, Yep, they were very unpopular and basically not used except when some officer made you.

We'd have liked to have been able to offer them in person, but this was the next best thing.

How's you little trooper doing?

Trooper Ebin seems to be doing fairly well.  The chemo is taking its toll on him a bit and, because of a localized infection, they had to remove the "central line" surgically implanted in chest, through which intravenous medications were to be administered and blood samples taken, on an ongoing basis.  Of course, he was receiving regular antibiotics because of his seriously compromised immune system (resulting both from the leukemia and the chemotherapy.)  But they are giving an oral antibiotic which seems to be doing the job.  It is my understanding that they will try to install another central line in due course, as his initial regimen of treatments is scheduled to continue into February.

Treatment seems to be having a positive effect already - for example, his level of "normal (as opposed to cancerous, and thus ineffective) blood platelets had dropped as low as 12 - normal is 150 to 200 - but has now climbed back to 140.   :)

He has a long campaign ahead of him yet, however, so continued thoughts and prayers will be greatly appreciated!
