Saturday, August 5

Your sympathies are appreciated.

Good news on the narcotics front: turns out I can take Celebrex, one of the advanced Cox-2 inhibitors, and it works pretty well. And as Justin suggested below: it's a routine surgery these days, and I'm expected to recover fully.

Now I'm off to help with our garage sale today, before the Fabulous Robyn turns into her evil twin, the Velocirobyn.

You wouldn't liker her when she's angry . . .

Good luck with the garage sale today from a former classmate of Roselawn, North Ridge and Danville High.

Glad to see you back, dude. Especially glad the new medicine will work, and I hope W/C stops fucking around, so you can get that surgery done!

Thanks, Mahesh.

And is that Paul Stevenson? Or is there some other Paul who's fallen through the sponge-holes in my brain?

Ahhhh, celebrex. I took it years ago when I popped my shoulder blade out lifting beerkegs at my bar. Excrutiating injury. I was on perks for about 2 weeks & just couldn't stand being stoned all the time. Celebrex lets you think & actually helps the recovery time. I hope your knee is better soon, & that your transition into your new home goes smoothly!!

It is great to see you back and hear that the work is progressing. I would think given the satisfaction reading you work gives that affording a nice house would be easier but...

I wish you well getting better - somehow so many really good writers end up with some shit fucking them up and ruining all of our (the readers) fun.

And on a different note: I noticed after purchasing traitor today (contributing to the new house fund) that the tone, pace and style of the book was absolutely different from your other works that I have read save for a few key Stovarian moments. I'm curious as to why this happened? (Not that I'm bashing the book by any means, simply caught off guard).

well the way you describe Robyn I'd love to see her mad, just not at me :)

Glad to see you're alive, and congratulations on the house, and not so congrats on the knee. Surgery is a good thing, most of the time.

Always!
Hugs,
Jenn
