For all of you incredibly patient people. To be completely up front with what’s going on with me, I had a stroke on February 18th. It was in the part of the brain that effects balance and coordination and for a long time I couldn’t even look at the computer screen without my eyes hurting. Unfortunately at that time we also discovered a previous stroke on the other side that we had been unaware of. Needless to see this has been an emotional, stressful experience.
The good news is that I am getting better every day. I started writing again this week and I believe I have decided on my next series which I am extremely excited about. My brain overall is working differently than it did previously, though I’m not entirely sure that’s a bad thing. It’s quieted down a bit and made it easier to focus. It just takes some getting used to. I’m used to hearing a lot of noise in there, you know.
So, dear reader, fear not. You have not been forgotten and I am working. I still intend to have carpal tunnel surgery but that’s obviously been postponed a bit. For the time being I’m working on healing and writing when I can.
On a personal note, let me just say this. After I took a few days to process everything the doctor’s were telling me, it occurred to me that I could have died that day. I could have never seen my babies again (though at their ages I’m sure they’d protest me calling them babies). Remember, weird random crap happens every day and we might never see our loved one(s) again. Let them know they’re loved.
Also if you’re the one that pays all the bills and you do it online, make sure your partner knows all the user names and passwords. 😉
