I thought it might be a good idea to tell you what’s going on and why I haven’t posted since February.
It’s a matter of the heart…literally. After a routine checkup it was determined that I needed two bypasses (stents weren’t the answer, apparently). I underwent the butchery they call “open heart surgery” February 24th (incidentally, the day after my birthday) and have been in “recovery mode” since then.
Recovery is more than physical…at least in my case. “They” tell me that depression and anxiety are to be expected with the extreme change in chemistry heart surgery produces. I will testify that this is a very truthful statement.
As a result, the garden has suffered. I tried to find someone to work in the garden without much success so, “nothing planted, nothing gained.” My main job for the next few months will be to keep what is already planted alive. Additionally, there is much that can be done regarding soil improvement. I will endeavor to keep you informed. In the meantime, thanks for reading.
