First of all, my heartfelt thanks to each person who wrote, called and texted asking how I am doing.
At one point, I thought, “I will get well. Look at all the people praying for me.”
I am doing much better, and continue to improve. When I left the hospital on April 10th, I could not sit up; I’m now able to walk half a mile unaided. Recovering from ileus and peritonitis took me two full months, and I still have to get back to full speed.
For the past two months I have mostly avoided the news, politics and particularly Latin American politics. As far as I can see, American politics has descended into contrived hysterics over every darn thing. LatAm will continue to be LatAm, and I simply did not have any energy to summon.
Many thanks, again, and I’ll be posting more frequently now.

Thank goodness you’re on the recovery road. South of the border to Tierra del Fuego has been blacked out in your absence. Welcome back!
Thank you Ed!
Much appreciated, OT!
Ah, Fausta, I was afraid we had lost you. You have been missed by many, but please take your time in coming back to full speed.

Glad that you are recovering. My SO started his long descent to hell through a peritonitis that revealed he also had cancer. So I know what you have been going through. Well, not in the biblical sense but as witness.
My best wishes, always, with you
