I may surprise y'all yet.

A future Absolved editor?
Michigan Escapee announces: "Mike Vanderboegh going under the knife."
Guess he's got a big ole softball sized tumor inside of him, so they gotta remove it,and hopefully he'll live long enough to finish the book.
Nah, who am I kidding, he'll get run over by a kid on a moped 12 years from now just as he's shipping off the manuscript. Way things always seem to happen. :roll:
Pretty funny, although his frustration -- which mirrors mine -- is perfectly understandable. Actually, I finally see the surgeon in his office first thing this morning and, since all necessary tests are already done, expect to be admitted to the hospital immediately thereafter with surgery tomorrow. Had one of the worst nights yet last night so I hope it works that fast. Will be taking my laptop with me, although I expect I'll lose at least a couple of work days post-surgery. Go to David Codrea's War on Guns site for updates in the meantime.
I'll do what I can, when I can, to avoid that killer moped. Obviously my death will be no excuse for not finishing Absolved, although there is an apparently growing crowd of folks who will cheer my death, finished or not. But, I may surprise y'all yet. ;-)

I'm sure you have several manuscript copies, right? Secure and very well placed? Of course you do.

Today's morning prayers to include request for your complete recovery. Ah heck. What am I saying? I always pray for you, Mr. V.

LOL ....I would bet you will surprise us all Mike. I will be in prayer much these coming days and hours for you and family.

Times like these are always difficult at best, having been in a similar situation .... I understand and I hope you will be comforted by a merciful Lord and Savior.

Better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for who you are not.

Good luck with the surgery. Post a guard outside the recovery room.
