I'm back!

1 Sep 2023 7:26 AM | Anonymous

This is a quick note to announce that I think I am back in operation from my recent hospitalization and recuperation. I am not back to "my old self" but I do feel better than I did for the past week or so.

I want to thank everyone for posting the "get well soon" comments. There is no way that I can reply to every one. However, I have read everyone and I want to say a heartfelt "Thank You" for each.

I will add one comment. Several folks suggested I seek medical help. Indeed, I did just that. I lost count but think I saw at least a dozen different doctors, most of them specialists of one sort or another. It is because of their excellent care that I am back within a week. I cannot offer enough "thanks" to all the excellent medical care I had.

I do think my return to writing this newsletter will be a bit slow to begin with but I hope to be back to full speed before long.

Again, thanks for all the well wishes.

    You had me quite worried. As a nurse, what you described sounded quite serious. I’m so glad you found good care. I wish you all the best. Take as much time as you need to feel yourself again. Your newsletter has always been very helpful to me. So many tips which I can work on for a long time. Thank you! An 80 year old retired nurse from Ann Arbor, MI.

    I'm glad your back. It is always good to get home, but don't over do it. Your fall sounded pretty serious if they kept you a week and you were examined by so many specialist. I pray you won't suffer any long term effects. Don't push yourself.

    You are one of my favorite computer gurus, as well as genealogist.

    Take care of yourself and my best wishes.
