On Hiatus

Hi folks,

I'm on the tail-end of a recovery from knee surgery, and now we've discovered that my wife has a vertically torn tendon in her ankle that may reach up her calf. She goes in for surgery early Tuesday morning. The doctor tells us she must be off of it for six weeks, minimum.

I'm going to put the blog on hiatus for at least the next month, and perhaps as long as the next two months while I tend to my family.

I hope to find you all well when I return.

Bummer - I hope all goes well with her surgery and rehab. Will miss the daily thoughts - but family is so much more important. God speed and wish you both the best.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

I guess that just leaves the prone position for trying our your new shootin' iron. Here's wishing you both full and speedy recovery.

Knit quickly! With both of you hobbling around, I sure hope you have a good layout, compact, all on one level, not a lot of steps in and out of the house, etc.

When I broke my leg I found those motorized carts at supermarkets/Wal-mart were the antidote to cabin fever. I felt useful by being able to do at least one normal chore.

Thoughts and Prayers from here for you and your Wife.

You have your priorities straight. Family comes first.

May The Lord bless, keep, and heal the both of you in short order, should it be His Will.

The knees are the first to go.
First, the left knee.
Then, the right knee.
Then, the "weenie."

Get well soon.

Take care of yourself and your wife. We'll come back when you're all healed.

Smart to get it done before NObamaCARE takes over.

What did everyone think of Mr. Beck's event yesterday. I like him, but am concerned about his Mormonism.
