Back. Moving Slowly, But Back.

My sincere thanks for all of the kind notes.

A quick explanation: Not feeling well on a Thursday morning turned into severe pain by evening and a trip to the emergency ward. Doctors confused. CT scan at 1:30 AM revealed a very rare condition re diverticulm (or the radiator). By last Friday, they thought they'd just keep me around for monitoring - I was already a celebrity in the radiology department - but by Saturday, they decided to operate. That grand event occurred last Sunday. All was successful but the bounce-back has been slow. Prognosis is good, although my speed resembles Walter Brennan on a bad day.

I'll be posting at an equally slow pace for a while but I'm definitely back and, as you may well imagine, very happy to be here.

Thanks again and special thanks to Erica Johnson for getting the updates posted.

Execupundit continues to be the only blog I read daily. You do an outstanding job of aggregating both "think" pieces and "fun" pieces from eclectic sources. Never boring, always a plus to my day. Thanks for your efforts. I'm glad to hear that you're recovering. May God bless your health in the days ahead.
