    Hi Lee,

    Best wishes from England as well. I hope it is a nice gradual recovery with no great complications.

    I’m going to repeat myself — TAKE IT SLOW! Listen to your body, preferably BEFORE you overdo. We love you, but we can muddle about while you recuperate. Setbacks are NOT a Good Thing.

    I keep prodding him to make sure he doesn’t need *my* attention!

    Glad to hear you’re on the mend, Lee. Take it easy…

    Hi, SZ. No, I’m not up and running. I’m posting things I had in reserve. The complications are still here, but I’m slowly mending, thanks to a good surgeon (can’t say much about some of the staff at the hospital, but he’s good) and my wife, Denene, is really going out of her way to make sure I’m comfortable.

    AND, the support I’m receiving from the mystery community is overwhelming. I’ve received well-wishes from Graveyard Shifters, writers, agents, and editors. You guys are the best! And Jonathan Hayes has checked on my progress several times each day. It’s nice to have such good friends.

    Good morning ! Are you up and running ? Alive and computing ? Hope there is no more complications and you are on the mend. Have a great weekend.
