Two quick things...
(1) All is proceeding apace. My physical recovery is going well, and I am exercising under the supervision of my friend and trainer Nancy. But this does not mean that I am ready for river rafting (did not try this) or for backyard volleyball (tried and failed... stitches are still all secure... :-) ).
(2) The "post date" from the "Dreams" post is correct - it is when I began to draft the post. I only posted it the other day, though, and so it has generated some concern from folks. All remains well in blogland too.
Thanks for staying in touch.
