In Praise of Modern Medicine


For those of you who follow my blog, I would like to explain my recent silence.

The serious health crisis that emerged in late February (see An Ode to Nameless Heroes) led inexorably to my undergoing major surgery in mid-April.

Four days ago, my doctor pronounced me fully recovered.  I am now free to resume a regular routine, which will happily include writing.

I am enormously grateful, not least for the fact that through the miracle of modern medicine I am still alive.

More soon!
