I’m now in what is considered the “recovery” mode of the consequence of rolling my car and having emergency surgery to remove my spleen.

Recovery is an interesting thing to consider.  I have 30 staples in my stomach holding together an incision that is just a hair over 8 inches long.  It’s difficult to function when you are worried you are going to pop a staple at any cough, laugh, bend, reach or stretch.  I have decided that I won’t really start recovering until the staples are gone – which, with any luck, will be Tuesday.

The other challenge of having been a bit out of commission is the catch-up – particularly with emails, texts, voicemails, etc.  There is something a bit daunting about firing up outlook and seeing 3187 unread emails.  Good grief.

So, if you have called, texted or emailed me in the last couple weeks – hang tight, I’ll try to get to you!

So much for “taking it easy.”
