      With the number of respondents, I have decided to limit to one bag. I have sent notifications to the first 4, but depending on their responses, I could be having some that will go to the next person. I currently have 7 people wanting some and only 4 bags, so you might do well to check with Pondzilla.

      Rich, have you gotten my PM's? I realize that I had sent one to you that you didn't get. Worried that the second did not go thru either.

      Got it. All of my clay has been taken. If anyone has any interest, contact Pondzilla.

      Will wonders never cease? What Gloria wrote is true. After my health (COPD) started causing me more problems in 2012 I left the farm and bought a house in Johnson City, TN so I'd be close to the VA hospital. My COPD continued to worsen over the years and in 2014 I had to go on supplemental oxygen 24/7. I took the Koi Village and Koi Clay websites offline, but I continued to sell the clay to my regular clients via email and phone. When we sold the last of the clay we had in stock, we decided not to continue.

      About a month ago my COPD got bad. I went through a lot of misery and ended up spending 4 days in the hospital. Amber called EMS Friday 6/29/18 and they took me to the VA hospital at 11:00 AM. I had already been to the emergency room 5 times with shortness of breath issues, but they would send me back home. The next time I waited until I was almost dead. I suffered severely for several days before I had Amber call EMS.

      They finally admitted me to the hospital and I was then able to see some doctors besides GP ER doctors. I was in bad shape at this time. I hadn't been able to eat for days and I was dehydrated, malnourished, and suffering from an excess of CO2 in my lungs.

      In a nut shell what I discovered is that they had me on too much supplemental oxygen. I was using 3 liters 24/7. The pulmonologist doctor told me that COPD patients shouldn't strive for a high blood oxygen content. They should shot for 88-92 %.

      As I sit here typing I'm currently at 91 % and I am without any supplemental oxygen. I stopped using it on July 5th and I feel wonderful. I've even been doing some cooking. I just have to sit down sometimes to let my oxygen content build back up. I expect I'll need to supplement my oxygen when I go away from the house, but I have my Inogen One G3 to handle that.

      I continued to improve and last Sunday I decided to put my clay back on the market. This time it will be much more professional than before. I'll have the business structure set up by next week, but it will take me some time to actually get any product on the market.

      I went to bed at 10:30 last night, but I woke up at 4:00 this morning and started thinking about the business and Koiphen popped into my mind, so I got up and logged on. Imagine my surprise to find this post at the top of the main forum!

      The only failures are those that stop trying! There is a very thin line between procrastination and delayed gratification. You won't be happy with what you want, if you aren't happy with what you have. It's not what you are looking at, but where you are looking from.

      Wow, I am so glad your COPD is under control. I can't imagine how difficult not being able to breathe can be. Welcome back, and I wish for you to have many years ahead with no issues.

      I haven't heard anything about that treatment, Gander, but there is a The Lung Institute headquartered in Tampa, FL treating COPD with stem cells. There are 5 locations and one of them is in Nashville. They report a high success rate. Unfortunately the FDA does not recognize stem cell treatments yet and I'd have to pay for it. There are two options with treatment, one cost $8,000.00 and the one I would need cost $12,000.00. I'll have to sell a lot of clay before I can go there.

      BTW, I quit drinking in January 2013 and quit smoking in July 2013.

      Let us know too how the product production is going... sounds like there's a pent-up demand.
      I know I'll put in another order as soon as it's available.

      Such wonderful news all around! I’ve been a daily user of your clay for almost a decade (me, my dogs and my fish!), travelling to the states to buy it. Bought my most recent 6 lbs. from some online vendor, forgot which, and I must have received the last of their stock. So glad you will be in business again, I don’t know what I would’ve done without Ultimate Koi Clay!

      Glad to see you back, Gene. Keep getting better and meet some of this pent up demand. I didn't know I was sitting on such a gold mine with the 4 bags that I bought during one of the WWKC Koi Shows, several years ago.
