I want to apologize for seeming to drop off the face of the blogosphere the past couple of weeks. Thank goodness we’ve had the Diva Contest to keep the GayPatriot engines pumping!
Anyway, a couple of personal housekeeping notes to get out there. PatriotMom (who is also a sometimes commenter) recently had surgery and I wanted to focus on her health last week, obviously. She is recovering quite well and back to her rascally ways in her retirement community in South Carolina. *grin* (PS — I urged her to move to SC earlier this year so she can do her part to defeat US Senator Lindsey Graham in 2008!)
Get better, Mom! We love ya. xoxoxo
Now for me…. I’ve lived with various kinds of back pain since I was in my late teens. The latest iteration has been an increasing lower back pain problem. I obviously assumed it was the horrible seats on US Airways due to my weekly job-related travel.
The pain was getting so bad this year that six months ago I got an MRI… but wasn’t told the results until a few weeks ago (right before vacation). The result was that I have a cyst on a nerve root, plus extensive lower back arthritis. This coming week I will be starting six weeks of physical therapy, plus an assorted variety of back injections to kill the pain and inflammation.
I just wanted everyone to know! I have a lot of stuff I want to blog about, but I’m going to take it as it comes since when my back acts up I don’t feel like doing much of anything.
Hopefully we will still be having our Election Night LIVE BlogTalkRadio Show on January 3rd for the Iowa Caucuses! Stay tuned for more details on that.
For now… signing off. Hopefully I’ll be back later this week.
