As it happened, I had to undergo some unanticipated surgery to correct a rather painful medical situation.
All I can say about it at this point is: boy, am I glad that's over! And, yes, I'm feeling much MUCH better, thank you for asking (because I know you're nice, and I know you will ask).
Oddly enough, there are actually several good things to say about all this:
Thing #1: My two kindly music therapy colleagues went to almost all of my clients (at my request) and let them know that I would be having some needed surgery and I would be out for a little while. And they emphasized the fact that I planned to return.
Thing #2: I have a full-time job. I have good health insurance. I have lots and lots of sick time, because I very rarely get sick (yes, I did just knock on wood). I do not take this fact for granted!
Thing #3: I have two neighbors (both women in their 70s) who were absolutely amazing after my surgery. They checked in on me, they ran errands for me, and they just made sure I was alive and everything was okay. What phenomenal gifts they are!
Thing #4: I discovered that "recovery from surgery" means "lie on the couch and can't do much of anything". Yes. Well. I did a lot of that.
So. Now that I'm back to work, I can also be back to blogging. Thank goodness!
