The hand reattachment surgery went well

Yeah, so, I chopped up three of my fingers in a fan yesterday ... and while staunching the flow of blood thought to myself, "Well, at least this will make a good column", which just goes to show I have my priorities in order. Actually, it's not that bad relatively speaking, but since I type as part of my jobs and typing is a bit painful at the moment, I'll be limiting my writing and internet time for a few days.  (I didn't take any time off because one of my coworkers lost her grandmother at the same time, and funerals trump sick days in my mind.)

Emily did a bang-up job with first aid, then two hours later twisted her ankle on the basement stairs while washing the blood-soaked sheets (the fan was by the bed). Have this summer's medical issues been nature's way of balancing out the good news of getting my novel published?

Anyway, there'll be a short delay in writing until my fingers heal a bit, then I'll get right back on it. Oh, my subject line? No, nothing actually got cut off; do you believe everything you read on the internet? On a related note, I'm brainstorming more heroic explanations for the damage. At the moment the story of how I saved a baby from an attacking lion leads the list.
