has agreed to take over blogging duties here at Progressive Eruptions for a while.
I will be entering Massachusetts General Hospital for a pre-op procedure on December 1 and surgery on Deember 2. My docs told me to expect to be in hospital 2 to 3 days, and in recovery for about 2 weeks, maybe less, depending on how quickly I heal. I am turning over the keys to PE to my favorite 8-armed cephalopod on November 28.
Those of you who have kept in touch with me via email and facebook know this, and I thank you all for your good wishes and encouragement.
I'm certain the posts by The Swash Zone community will produce lively discussions and the occasional ill-tempered commenter. (O)CT(O)PUS has my permission to delete any obnoxious trolls who post only character assassinations and thoughtless talking points.
All Progressive Eruptions regulars are welcome and invited to continue to post their comments.
I'll be back as soon as possible. Meanwhile, enjoy the charms of an Octopus's Garden:
Keep it going.
