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!

  1. Hi Cynthia,

    I just read your previous blog as well. I hate to admit, but I had missed it. I am not sure what happened to you, but I want you to know I am sending you my positive thoughts, and great energy now for continued healing. It sounds, from below, that you are ok now, and I only wish I had seen this earlier as I would have reached out. So here I am now! J

    Yes, there are some GREAT people out there, and it sounds like you met them. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hang in there, and keep moving forward, as you have!
