Writer Down for Maintenance

This hasn’t been the best of weeks for me.  I’ve had worse but not for some time.  On Thursday I went in to the hospital for surgery to repair a hernia.  I am recovering well and expect to be back on my feet soon but today I am still on pain killers so I’ve decided not to write a post.  At the moment it just hurts too much to sit at the computer and the drugs are giving me an interesting perspective on life that is best not shared.

So the view this is week is a bit fuzzy and blurry with everything tilted to the left – until lunch time when it shifts gently to the right.

I’ll be back next week with some stories of adventures and perhaps a bit of wisdom on the use of pain medications in modern medical practice.

Until then, mark this writer as down for routine maintenance.  I should be back on-line by next Sunday.
