An Update

Many thanks to everyone for positive thoughts and comments. Nothing definite from the specialist. I have to wait for biopsy results. For myself and my son. Who just went for a checkup.

Waiting is the worst.

What I planned for this year was reviews of books and movies I love. Completely personal. I still hope to get there.

I have actually been writing more regularly. I printed out one of my more complete books and have been editing the hard copy. It’s working much better for me. The book I did have published was in the 1990’s and my first draft was longhand and then typed out twice on a manual typewriter. What can I say? Those were the days. Sending hard copy submissions to publishers – which cost a packet – and multiple submissions were frowned upon. So send and wait. Send and wait. Checking the information in a ten year old copy of ‘The Writers and Artists Yearbook’. One of the members of our writers’ group brought in a new copy and was nearly mobbed. No online buying and massively unhelpful local shops. It didn’t help living in the back of beyond either.

Thanks again.

    Keeping you and your family in my thoughts. I hope the results are good and that waiting is not too long.

    ASEA seems good for improved health, though I was very skeptical when I originally heard about it.

        I was very surprised at the improvement in my back (5 discs were severely damaged in 2010, so I’ve lived with chronic pain…. I’ve only been on this about 10 days, but there has already been a marked improvement…. Years ago, I”d given up hope that anything could do that.

  4. Keeping you in my thoughts! So glad to hear you are writing and editing more – hope that goes well for you too 🙂

  5. Hey… It is going to be fine! I know, waiting isn’t easy…. I am thinking of you and your family
