Status Update…and a Favor to Ask

On this next Sunday, August 6th, it will have been two months since my last post here. During that time, I’ve had surgery, am in my eighth week of recovery, and have managed to recover from sticker shock at the medical bills we now have to pay.

The best news is my pain level is vastly diminished, and my surgeon released me last week to return to normal activities. That release came with a disclaimer. My surgeon’s expectations are that I will use common sense and previous experience with back surgeries to keep my activities within reason.

Stepping Away for Awhile

Beginning Friday, June 9th, I will be stepping away from this blog, my book review blog, and social media as I recover from surgery. During my time away, I’m hoping to regain strength and energy lost during my 18 month battle with chronic pain resulting from a fall in January 2016. I’m also hoping to take advantage of the quiet time to work toward completion of my memoir and ready it for publishing.

When I return, or perhaps before, I may propose some topics for blog posts and ask for your input on what you’d like to see and read here.
