As you no doubt noticed, there wasn't a 5 on Friday set last week, as Brad was in surgery last Friday, having his appendix removed.

Although for Western calendars, the new year dawned on Jan. 1st, in the Chinese year it's still the Year of the Horse. For both Brad and me it's been a year of moving on, and even in these last weeks of Horse energy, we're leaving things behind that don't work for us any longer. Like his appendix!

Brad's at home now after spending six days in the hospital. It hadn't burst, but was hanging by a thread from doing just that, so he had a lot of abdominal infection and inflammation from which to recover.

This week's set goes out to all of our friends, near and far, who wished Brad a speedy recovery.

Great set,I am glad to hear that he is on the mend. reminds me of the time when I had an intestial infection that mimicked an appendix attack, the Dr that removed it caught an instant attitude that I was faking the attack,and stopped treating me instead of finding the real reason i was sick this happened when i was see a psych for grief cousiling right after I had lost my dad in 1984,it took bot a uroligist and my psych doct to make the surgeon to see the error in his ways.

That's incredibly frustrating, Mike -- sorry you had to go through all of that. For Brad, because he's had irritable bowel disorder all along, he and I both thought that his symptoms were related to that. We weren't thinking appendicitis at all. So his appendicitis attack actually started on Christmas Eve, if you can believe it.

Brad soldiered on, and we even went on a little overnight trip to a small town about an hour away, and all the while he was in pain. But when we got home and the pains began to get stabbey, that wasn't normal, so we went to emergency. He was swept right through -- no waiting. Never a good sign. They took excellent care of him. I'm SO grateful.
