I wish I could say it was because of something wonderful.
I wish I could say it was because I won the lottery and I was too busy eating croissants in Paris to write.
I wish I could say it was because I got a great new job and I was having too much fun doing a happy dance.
I wish I could say the reason for the hiatus was anything other than what it was.
The truth is I had a major Multiple Sclerosis flare up that literally and figuratively brought me to my knees. Numbness from the tips of my toes that spread up to my chest. I thought it was the big one. I wasn’t trying to impersonate Fred Sanford, but I kept repeating to my husband, “This is it, it’s finally got its hooks in me, I’m going to die.”
But after intensive IV steroid treatment, rest and recovery, I’m happy to report that I’m back. Not 100% healed, but good enough.
I have some lingering issues. We’ll see how many brain lesions I’ve developed after the three hour MRI brain scan I’m having this weekend.
But I can walk, I can talk, I can type, and I can live. And I’m doing all of them.
So, it’s back to blogging, and I have a lot to talk about.
