I suffered a catastrophic health collapse June 13, 2014, and was hospitalized nearly a month, due to septicemia and liver abscesses, originating from a broken blood vessel in my colon, the result of severe digestive distress after what seemed to be a good meal. This took a great deal out of me, and the doctors were very clear that I should expect to take at least two years to recover.
I went for more than a year without being able to deal with regular e-mail, but in September 2015, I did resume VERY LIMITED e-mail work. Two computer crashes have lost many of the old e-mails that I was never able to read. But I am trying to keep current with new e-mail, although it may be several weeks before I answer your e-mail.
However, in the first 7 months of 2016, I suffered 6 illnesses, most taking about 3 weeks each. While 3 courses of antibiotics finally stopped the illnesses, I had lost a great deal of time, and all my plans were demolished. While I am now making progress in recovering -- both from the 2014 and 2016 troubles, it is very slow and must be very cautious. I would very much like to be able to do more, but the reality is that if I try to do more, it will destroy my recovery, and I will not be able to do even the limited work that I can now do. So I do what I can when I can.
March 2017 update: I have been illness-free since August but still clearly weakened from all the illnesses, added to my usual Winter hibernation. But I am starting to make some real progress -- most notably the 203 AAA Bulge book is now on Amazon and I have added about 800 pages of Morning Reports to the web site this month.
