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.
