My Story

My surgery took place on Feb. 11 and I'm recuperating well now at home.  See the journal entries for details. I appreciate your support and words of encouragement. 

I hope the donate requests don't annoy you. It's just how Caring Bridge covers their expenses. Obviously, I don't get any of that money. If you want to get money to me, send cash or buy my books.  :) :)  :)
