thank you addie, and barbara, and everyone who posted their concern over the past few weeks. i'll be around a little more often in the near future.
it's been an interesting couple of months for me. right around the same time as hurricane sandy hit i got very sick.
the hurricane only did some cosmetic damage to our house, and the power outage was nothing more than a minor convenience, so we were pretty lucky. i still hate to look at the pictures of all of the damage down the shore. all of those great memories of my family on the beach and boardwalk, and all of my son's favourite kiddie rides. they'll rebuild, but it'll never be the same. so many people lost so much that i can only feel very blessed to have escaped worse.
my illness at the same time started with a stupid little fingernail infection that nearly turned into sepsis, and is now being evaluated for possible osteomyelitis in the first digit of my right index finger. i've been tested for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, lyme's disease, and a whole buch of other things. they just can't put their finger on the exact problem...
i wish it was my middle finger so i can show i'd have a reason to show it to all of the bad drivers that travel into the city this time of year to see the tree in rockefeller center.
anyway, i'm still kicking. thanks again for those who've asked about me.
