Well, that was quite an experience. :-)
I got a pain in the lower right side of my stomach on Thursday evening, so I went to see my doctor on Friday morning. It turned out to be appendicitis. Fortunately, it was quite mild, so I wasn’t in very much pain, but they decided it was best to remove my appendix rather than attempt antibiotic treatment, because if that doesn’t work, things can get quite nasty quite quickly. So, I now have another scar to add to my growing collection.
It’ll take me a couple of weeks to recover, so please be patient if my turnaround time for mail is even slower than it normally is.
Thanks to my friend Richard for posting to let you guys know what was going on. And thank you to all of you who commented wishing me the best. I must first stress that the sentiment is very much appreciated in all cases. One of the reasons I love working with free software is the friendliness and kindness of the community. However, I’m afraid I’d have to respectfully disagree with a couple of the theological statements. It may offend people to say it, but it’s true – anyone praying who wasn’t praying to the one true God of the Bible was wasting their time.
But, as He promises to do, He looked after me. I know that in everything, He works for my good, and I’m sure this situation will be no exception.
