There are two items that I would like to report on.
The first one is that I have finished my adventure with cataract surgery, and all I can say on that subject is that I wish that I had had it done much sooner. As it turns out, I still do need glasses, but I can see so much clearer now that I am still having trouble believing it!
The second item is that I am just out of the hospital following a bout with double-pneumonia. I spent 28 days in the hospital, and they told me that I would probably need at least two more months to recover completely.
I have a hiatus hernia, and that caused me to aspirate liquid from my stomach into both lungs. It appears that I am very lucky because the attack could have been fatal! The word is: if you have a hiatus hernia, don't ignore it the way I did.
Anyway, I am very weak, and I am not sure how much writing I can do for a while. As I am sure you know by now, I do love to write, so I will be pressing hard to get back to my stories. I do have a couple of stories finished, and I will be posting them as I can. However, I am not sure what kind of schedule I will be following in posting the stories. I may be somewhat erratic, but I will try to stick to a reasonable schedule.
I suppose that most of you are as tired of this kind of report from me as I am of writing it, but I just wanted to say that I am back after spending over a week in the hospital. That was why I was late posting my chapters.
This time I got an honest statement from the medical personnel: "We don't know what was wrong with you, but we agree that you were very sick!"
My posting may become very erratic for a while until I get some strength back. Right now, I get very tired just sitting in a chair at my computer. Nobody knows how long that nonsense will last. I just hope that you will be patient with me.
First of all, I want to thank those of you who wrote to me with good wishes for my surgery.
Everything seems to have gone well, and I truly can see a lot better with the new lens. I don't need reading glasses if I close my left eye, but I can't keep that up for long. I can hardly wait the three weeks for the next operation.
It seems like most of my blogs lately have dealt with my medical history. Well, here is another one. On Monday, 1/28/2013, I am scheduled to have cataract surgery in my right eye. My reason for mentioning it is that it may wind up causing me to be late posting the next chapter of Waterfall Keep. If it does, I will return to posting as soon as I can manage it. Thanks for your patience.
This is a flash story that I am posting as an experiment. I am allowing voting because I want to know if I should write more stories like this or just forget the whole thing. Please let me know what you think, either by voting or by e-mail. Thanks.
