Terrible Times

This is only a very brief note, to let you know that I'm still here, but in exceedingly awful shape. There are many issues I'd like to write about, and I've managed to make some notes about a few of them, but I'm just not able to function very well at all right now, certainly not well enough to do the kind of writing I prefer. I keep trying to do some writing; so far, I have to stop after a little while and go back to bed. And now one of the cats seems to have some ailment, too. Thanks to the generosity of readers, I can afford to get her some medical attention once I'm able to make the trip to the vet. I hope to do that in the next few days; Wendy doesn't appear to be seriously ill (appetite good, still her playful self), so the situation isn't one of great urgency. Still, I'm worried that she has some problem, and I want to make sure it's nothing of great concern.

Once again, I'm deeply grateful to those who made donations, especially since the cats are also beneficiaries of your kindness. Sadly, the medical attention I myself require will forever be far out of reach financially. (And if Wendy's situation should cost more than several hundred dollars, that could be a problem, too. For the moment, I'll assume it's a relatively simply problem. But we'll find out soon.)

I hope to be able to do some work in the near future. I'll be back as soon as possible. My enormous thanks for your generosity and patience still another time.
