Late November is time for giving thanks. For me, every day is time to pause and give thanks.
In case you have noticed my absence, I feel I should explain that in late July I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm, waking up in the wee hours of the morning with a headache from Hell. I was able to stand up, wake my husband and tell him I needed to go the emergency room, and then I blacked out on the floor from the pain. Few people survive such a medical event unscathed; a very high percentage don’t survive it at all.
Thanks to my loving husband Ron’s quick action, and his insistence on a CT scan when we reached our local hospital, I have survived and am grateful to be recovering with almost no residual effects. Emergency surgery was performed at Strong Hospital in Rochester, NY by a superb neurological team. I can’t say enough good about them, or heap enough praise upon all of our friends and family who have been supportive and helpful to both Ron and me through this chapter in our lives.
I have been spending my time on small book store activities, reading and resting; also Ron and I have done a lot of walking to help regain my strength. Nature is so healing!
Old Scrolls Book Shop is still going strong, and we are buying and selling fine books as usual, both online and in store.
Thanks to all of YOU, my readers, for your patience and understanding. I have been gradually returning to my normal activities, and you can expect me back here blogging on books very soon!
