or at least – back. On the 21st I was hastily removed to hospital with a kidney stone. That was lasered, after which I was initially fine for a couple of days, then deteriorated abruptly. However I was sent home 9 days later, and a week out of hospital and after that,I think I’ve mostly bounced back again. However I plan to take it easy for the remainder of the year just in case. I’ll shift to my usual writing schedule once it’s New year, and my energy levels return. Meanwhile I’m very happy to be home again – and the cat is very happy to have me home.
