Going Radio Silent…

I feel I have the best of doctor and I'm looking forward to being able to use my arm fully...

There must have been a time in the past 6+ years where I didn’t post for a week, two, possibly more…there must have been, though at this moment, I can’t remember it. I barely slept last night – less than 2 hours. The important thing, of course, is that the surgeon slept! I had three projects to finish and send to clients; a bunch of sessions to finish related to our training courses, emails to send…so much on my mind. Amira and Haim invited us for dinner; Shmulik and Naama called and said they wanted to come over to see me for a few minutes. Dinner was amazing; everything wonderful. Elie called and ended up offering to take me to the hospital – Lazer and Amira are going, so that’s covered. Davidi went to school yesterday but will come to the hospital later this afternoon, hopefully when I’m awake and aware. I won’t tell him he took the wrong suitcase and sent me scrambling to find something else… So – in a few hours, I’ll have surgery. I expect to be off line at least a week; Lauren tells me to prepare for three. May you all be blessed with a Shana tova – a good year; a shana metukah – a sweet year. May it be a year of blessings, of safety, of health. May it be a year of peace – for all of Israel and the world. May the peace come across our borders and within our borders. I don’t know if I’ll have someone posting – I guess the main thing to say is that I feel I have the best of doctor and I’m looking forward to being able to use my arm fully… eventually. One of them…I think it was Amira…tells me I should ask the doctor if after the surgery, I’ll be able to really pitch … and then tell him I never could so it would be really nice if I got that talent. So – here’s a prayer for you and for me – may this next year come in with all the blessings, all the goodness…all the dreams we keep inside ourselves. And may we each be inscribed in the book of life for a good year, a sweet, sweet year.
