I know my communication has been few and far between and I'm so sorry for that. I want to thank all of you for your personal letters of support as well as the prayers and good thoughts sent my way.
If all goes well, it should be over soon. Without going into detail, I will be having surgery in the next couple weeks and if what the docs say is right, I should be able to get back on track. Once I go through the recovery time, I can even start using the computer again to write. (So far I've got about six stories on my tape recorder :->)
Being so ill, moving from Macau back to Orlando and getting ready for another move overseas (place is a surprise, I'll let you know once the contract is signed) has been very difficult. Something had to give and it was my time online. I hated it in so many way, missed so much, but in a weird way it was good for me too. I think I needed time to reflect and maybe regroup. I know my life will be different once this is done and my hope is it will also be better. I know my goals and thoughts have changed a great deal.
Please don't give up on me just yet. I'm itching to be creative again, but I don't know when that will be with what's happening right now. All I can say is I'm glad I have people who love me and lift me up when I'm struggling.
Hopefully will talk with you all again soon.
