Under The Knife

Nope, that’s not the title of a new book, I wish. My muse has been on an indefinite vacation, first due to the move, then due to the job search (which is still ongoing, although I am working part-time), and finally due to my health.

Last month I was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ. Given my family history and my own personal history, I will be going under the knife on Monday and having a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction.

So, my blog, this journal, my twitter, etc, are on hiatus until I feel well enough to deal with social media again. I won’t even attempt to catch up when I come back. I’d rather not have the stress of being behind and frankly, I’d just like to start fresh. I may or may not reply to comments, it will depend on how I’m feeling both physically and mentally. Please understand, I will read them and I do appreciate them.

I will miss all of you and I will see you on the flip side.
