Happy February!

I hope it will be, anyhow. :) It's starting off... interesting.

I came home from my Kuwait trip on Jan 27th, and on the 28th noticed my right leg was swollen and sore. I had a blood clot in that leg back in 1999, and though I told myself it couldn't have happened again I was suspicious. So I had an ultrasound on the 29th, and sure enough, lightning has indeed struck twice.

It's fairly easily treatable (anticoagulant shots for the week and then pills, which last time were only for 6 months but are now going to be for at least 2 years since I've had a recurrence) but it does kind of mess with my head. However, my trip was great, and I will post a few pictures sometime this week.

It's hard to concentrate but I am moving forward in my writing despite the far-too-frequent doctor visits for this week. (Once I get into a routine with the anticoagulants things will settle down.) I did some work on Aardvark while in Kuwait, and still love it, AND I wrote the first two pages of Blueberry today! I hope to have Aardvark going out to agents in late February and Blueberry's first draft done sometime in March.

I also want to do my own personal NaBloPoMo for February, so I intend to be here, in some capacity, every day this month. If anyone wants to be my "daily posting buddy", let me know! :)

Off to bed now!

I will try to be your daily posting buddy. I make no promises though. Hope your leg gets better soon.
