Er, Hello Again . . .

I haven't quit blogging. Sure, I managed to leave The Eagle's Aerial Perspective lonely and abandoned for a week, but I'm not gone yet. I had surgery last Friday (I'm walking again and there's little pain) and haven't been doing much since then--well, other than watching videos and knitting a sweater--to let the incision heal, including using the computer.

This post is just to let you all know I don't think I'll be doing much blogging until the A to Z Blogging Challenge begins on April 1st. I might say something here if the urge strikes me, but other than that, I'll probably lie low and comment on a few blogs here and there. And read email--good grief, who knew how many emails could build up from a few days in the hospital.  LOL.

So, what's up with you? Any good news? Bad news? Anything exciting happen?

If you're participating in the A-Z Challenge, do you have a theme and/or have you pre-written your posts? Or are you planning to wing it?

Ack! I feel terrible. I didn't know you went in for surgery. Major fail on my part. But I am glad to hear you're walking again and the pain is receding. Take care and see you in April. (:

I wish you a speedy, complete, and pain-free recovery. Recovery > Blogging.

No A-Z for me. I can barely find enough to say 2x/week, never mind every day. I'm quite interested in seeing how you and everyone else does it, though.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad the surgery went well. We have missed you!
I have a theme - not revealing until next week - and about half of my posts are written.

Suzanne Furness said...

Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care and enjoy a rest :)

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi GE .. glad it all went well - and as you say may it heal quickly and easily. Enjoy the break and that healing period ... all the best Hilary

Pat Hatt said...

Glad all went well, pain can sure be hell. A to Z is done, I'm into June now under my sun.

Susan Kane said...

Bless your heart, or whatever! Take time to heal. As an overachiever this might be hard to do. We'll see you in April!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

May your recovery be swift!

Krista McLaughlin said...

Sorry about your surgery - hope you are doing better now! Take some time to rest and relax, don't worry about the A-Z. We will be here when you are feeling better. :)

Beth said...

I hope you're feeling better and have a speedy recovery. I got food poisoning. Is that exciting?

Mark Means said...

Hey, hope you bounce back soon and that it was nothing serious.

I better see you during April, A to Z'ing with the rest of us :)

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

I hope you will take it easy and heal. The blogoshpere will still be here when you are up at 100% again. .:)

mshatch said...

So sorry you had to have surgery! No fun. Rest and get better and get those a-z posts ready! I'm still working on mine.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Surgery is no fun, so please rest up and give yourself a real break. Think of all the great books and movies you might catch up on!

Nick Wilford said...

Glad to hear you're feeling OK and the surgery went well. See you in April!

Su Wilcox said...

Glad to hear you're healing up! Keep on getting better and taking the time off that you need.

Liz said...

Yikes, I hope you feel better soon. Although, knitting a sweater is a great way to pass the time. Finished just in time for spring?

klahanie said...

My friend, the main thing is you take it easy and recoup from that surgery.

Rest and get ready for your participation in the alphabet challenge :)

Connie Keller said...

I'll pray you heal quickly. Get lots of rest.

linda said...

Feel better soon!

Paul Tobin said...

Get well, save your strength for April! Read much and watch many videos.

I am at work on a number of projects, some poetry for a collaboration and the sequel to The Jowler.

Take care.

Charles Gramlich said...

Glad to hear that you are recovering nicely! Hope it goes even faster.

Deborah Walker said...

Hi Eagle. I'm glad that you're on the mend.

Carol Kilgore said...

Glad your surgery was successful. Hope you heal quickly.

I am participating in A-Z and hope I can keep up. Still working on posts.

Happy Weekend!

Mark Noce said...

Best of luck with the sweater:)

Pearson Report said...

Hello GE - It's been a while since I've made the rounds and it seems I've come at just the time when wishing you a speedy recovery is the order of the day.

I hope you are up and at it in good form for the A-Z as your posts have long been a favourite of mine during the crazy whirlwind month of April!

I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us...you may have mentioned it in previous posts, regrettably I did not catch it if you did...so I stand to be well surprised.

Take care...be well and happy,
Jenny @ PEARSON REPORT

Cindy Dwyer said...

Yep, I'm in again this year. I have five posts left to write. I met so many great bloggers last year, that this year I decided to write as many as possible beforehand so I can spend more time visiting.

Glad you are on the mend!

Carol Riggs said...

I'm glad to hear your surgery went well. Keep healing and relaxing! I'm not doing the A-Z (way too intensive for me; I'm down to posting twice a month! so I can get some writing done). Have fun!

Simon Kewin said...

Hope you're back to normal soon. I decided not to do A-Z this year, but best of luck with yours.

Susan Roebuck said...

Get well soon, GE, and I'm glad the surgery went well. Take it easy!

Heather said...

Surgery, oh no! I didn't know you were having surgery. Sorry, I've been buried under the editing rock lately. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

C. Lee McKenzie said...

Sorry about the surgery, but glad you're in recovery! As to the A-Z, I can't wing it. I have to have all those posts done ahead of time.

See you a lot in April. Keep getting better.

Christine Rains said...

I'm happy your surgery went well. Rest up and feel better soon. I'm excited for the Challenge! :)

Misha Gericke said...

I didn't know you went into surgery! But I'm glad to know you came out of it okay.

Yes, I did enter the A to Z Challenge for both my blogs. Have themes for both, but this year I'm winging the post.

Michael Offutt, S.F.A. said...

Eeep. I hope you recover soon and that all the pain goes away.

I had surgery recently to remove a huge kidney stone. The pain lasted maybe a day but now I feel so good that it's put a whole new spin on the day.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Ouch. Surgery is never fun, but I'm glad it went alright.

DWei said...

Ouch, surgery of any kind is never fun. :(

And I'm certain that it be better to just read what's been happening in my life on my blog as opposed to me re-typing everything in a comment. :P

Bonnee Crawford said...

Hope you heal up nicely! Nothing particularly interesting or exciting happening over here. Good luck with the A-Z challenge, though I won't be participating.

Ida Chiavaro said...

Your blog description got me at a wide range of other subjects - and the title is great too. The answers to your questions - So, what's up with me? I'm clearing my mind today and doing the housework tomorrow - Any good news? - The sun is shining and my seedlings are getting stronger. Bad news? My Computer is getting old. Anything exciting happen? I took a trip through blogland and joined the A-Z blogger challenge for the first time, I think I might move here... I hope you get well soon and good luck with the challenge.

Linda Ann Nickerson said...

Hope you mend quickly - and in time for April A to Z! May you knit even faster than your woolly project!

HAPPY A TO Z!

Ready to go with EIGHT blogs in the April A-Z Challenge! Mine are 475 - 483 on the A-Z list.

Two of these blogs (Simply Snickers and The Meme Express) will offer DAILY writing/blogging prompts and A-Z words throughout the month of April. The Meme Express welcomes A-Zers to leave daily comments, linking back to their alphabetic posts.

Thanks for helping with the hosting of the A to Z Challenge! Here we go-o-o-o!

Rachel Morgan said...

I hope you're doing ok since your surgery. I'm actually not doing A to Z this year - getting a book finished!

Julie Flanders said...

I hope you are recovering well from your surgery.

I'm one of the A-Z Minions and just wanted to stop by to say hello. Take care and good luck with the Challenge. :)

Here's to a speedy recovery!
