since I last wrote. I didn't mean to stay away for so long. I have thought about writing often but coming up with the motivation to do so has been challenging. I have continued to move forward physically and psychologically (thank you for all your kind and caring comments on my past few posts, it really was a comfort to read your words). I have many more good days than bad a month out from my surgery. It seems I still don't have very much to say but it's getting better.
It's our busiest time of year at work so I have been working a lot and I've been itching to do some more academic writing so I contacted my post doc mentor about a call for papers. Thus, it seems I may have something to write about here in the not too distant future.
