Blogging this from my hospital room. Thrilled to have been selected again.
I will be admitted to a hospital in Baltimore, Maryland (St. Agnes) for some fairly serious surgery on Wednesday, January 4th. St. Agnes is a small hospital, but does a large number of the surgeries that I will need (for a rare, mucus secreting tumor). I was referred by a surgeon at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC. I live in NJ, so it will be pretty far away from home.
I have created a blog based upon a sample from my latest book (sorry, no RSS feed, no time) to allow anyone who wishes to to keep track of my progress. It is here:
Careful readers will note that back in June of 2004, I had other serious surgery, a Whipple procedure. As far as we know, this surgery is totally unrelated to that other serious surgery (and unrelated to my liver resection back in 1998). The Whipple was related to an underlying condition I have (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis - FAP), however neither the liver resection nor this impending surgery is a normal complication of FAP. I presume I must have really ticked someone off in a previous life....really bad Karma.
