A Terrible Time for a Break

I made a commitment to myself when I restarted this blog that I would not just slap up space-filling content. While I’m in recovery from this hernia, which will take some time still, posts will be fewer. I will try to queue some Docks posts today for the diehard fans. I have a few essays in the works, but I’m not sure you will see them first here.

Really, this is a terrible time for a break. I have just connected with a wonderful group of writers and networking with this blog. But I have a plan for recovery. This afternoon I will find out when I can schedule my surgery, and if I will be needing any additional surgeries as a result of the ablation. I had a terrible day yesterday as far as ablation-related pain. It seems much improved today. Fingers crossed!

Thank you for reading, and to those of you who have checked in. Please don’t forget me! I’ll be back as soon as I can!
