A friend says I've scared readers. So let me tell you what's going on.
I don't have cancer and I'm not dying (at least not yet). For about a year, I had a low-grade infection no one could cure. This was finally pinpointed to my jaw, and -- in June -- I had seven hours of surgery to clean out the infection. Pulled a bunch of teeth to get there. Recovery has been slow.
On top of that, over the past three weeks, I've had shoulder pain and I haven't been able to hold a pen. That diagnosis, confirmed last Friday, is cervical spine stenosis. After taking a look at my MRIs, surgery has been recommended, probably next week (after I get a second opinion this week).
The pain and numbness makes it very difficult to work. For the moment, I can't both work and blog. Heck, I can't even sleep.
I appreciate the shout-out, and I'd be happy to work with a co-blogger--but so far, no luck finding one.
I will return to blogging when I can both blog and work. I just don't know when that will be.
