Oh my gosh - it's been 7 months since I last posted! I didn't realize that! My apologies to my followers and readers for such a long silence. And thank you for still sticking with me. I really appreciate your support.
Brandy, Azteclady, Christine and all of you who messaged and kept in contact, thank you! Your support, concern and kindness touch me deeply.
During this long period of silence, I've been doing some healing and deep thinking. Health-wise, I had to overcome a couple of challenges. I was struck by hyper-thyroidism (or overactive thyroid) and started losing an alarming amount of weight in 2 months. It appeared out of nowhere and I was totally unaware of it. With the help of a very good endocrinologist, I recovered fully after about 4 months. I am now back to normal although I still have to take 1 pill a day.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, 8 August 2012, I will be undergoing a total knee replacement surgery. This bum knee has been bothering me for the last 3 years and it's getting progressively worse. I found a good surgeon and decided to get it done. I will be staying in the hospital for 5 days after the surgery. If I can access the hospital WiFi, I will keep you updated on my status. If not, I will post again next week when I'm home.
Thank you all, once again, for being here and still reading. Talk to you again, soon.
