We want to keep you informed as to what is going on with us, here at NorthPoint Paddles. You all have been so gracious and understanding as we have gone through these difficult months and we thank you for all of your encouraging words and support.
Here we are in the middle of November and Brita’s mom, Beth, is still struggling with health issues. Her long-awaited heart valve replacement finally took place a few weeks ago and the surgery itself went well, but, unfortunately, she has had multiple complications afterward, including a mini-stroke last week that, thankfully, didn’t last long and did not leave any ill effects. She is such a trooper and such a strong lady. She taught us kids to survive and that is what she is doing now…surviving. Next, in the weeks to come, she is going to need a stent put in the main artery of her heart that is 80% blocked – which we were not expecting. Currently, she is regaining her strength and recovering from the latest ordeals. Your continued thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
In light of what is ahead for Beth in these next couple of months, we have made the decision to wait until after January 1st, 2023 to resume our paddle production.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding – it means so much.
