Friday, August 01, 2008 – 9:10 A.M. I have not been online much this week because I have been sick with another urinary tract infection. This morning I am seeing my doctor for an “emergency” visit. Things are really bad, but I am hopeful that I will not need to go to the hospital. The remainder of my life is going through another bad period – as if things were not bad enough already. That’s all I have time to write this morning, but I wanted to let everyone know why I have not been here lately.
