Yes, I'm still here in the land of the living! I'm finally now off of the pain blockers that the docs had had me on for most of the last year. The pain is still there, but I'm much rather live with that than all of the pharma side effects, the least of which was drug induced stupidity.
Now that I'm semi-functional again I've been slowing catching up on everything that I hadn't gotten done while existing as a near vegetable. This includes starting to think about getting back to writing again. I've caught up on 6+ months of reader email and that's given more than a bit of motivation to get back to work. Still a few long overdue things left to do around the house, but I'm itching to get back to the literary grindstone.
Thanks as always for pokes, prods and kind thoughts.
