I'm here, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...yet

One of my loyal readers- you know who you are :o)- emailed me because she hadn't seen me around lately. What a nice warm feeling that created in me, to know I was missed out here in my little corner of the WWW.

My aunt is back in the hospital with more complications from her surgery and I found out today that it was because of doctor error that she's got this terrible infection. I always thought that some surgical instrument getting left inside of someone happened to 'other' people. Well, it can happen to regular folks too. That's right, a surgical sponge was left inside of her and has caused a nasty infection. The poor dear, like she hasn't been through enough. Hopefully I'll get to pick her up from the hospital tomorrow; I hope so anyway.

To those of you who've been praying, thank you.

As for my writing, I actually opened my writing program and added about a thousand words to my WIP today. It's the first time in a couple of weeks that I've even looked at it. I missed it terribly- one more reason to get a laptop so that I can write when I'm away from home. I promised myself that as soon as I sold a book I was going to treat myself to a brand new laptop...that's pretty good motivation :o)
