Pardon the Interuption
I have been distracted from blogging due to having to endure a host of medical appointments and procedures (pharmacological stress test, contrast-aided 3-D imaging of the heart, Doppler sonogram of my carotids, an angiogram of my carotids, and surgery on one carotid this coming Tuesday). Then comes an X-Ray guided injection of cortisone in my left sacroiliac joint, which, alas, took longer to set up than all of the heart and artery appointments and procedures thanks to an overworked or lazy secretary and too few doctors available for epidurals. Of course the other stuff is more life-threatening than a joint.
The main thing the pesky sacroiliac joint has done is badly compromise my ability to do some gardening. This results in a much slower "work rate," a great term I have learned from soccer broadcasts. My blogging work rate is very poor right now. I have been struggling with how to express my linguistic and political concerns with the issue of winding down the Iraq war. That comes next.
