Been keeping busy (keeping my resolution, too); how about you? Unfortunately I had to slow down a lot yesterday and today, thanks to the reappearance of a back problem. (Which proves that my recently neglected exercise routine really did make a difference.) That same issue makes it a bit hard to do any computer work, so this will be brief.
But I have good news! Our superior's medical report came in today: the surgery she underwent two days before Christmas got all the cancer; the doctors aren't even recommending radiation follow-up. Thanks be to God! She still has to hear the "second opinion," but we're going to pray that the first doctor got it right. Keep the prayers coming.
And I have smaller good news for me, too. In a few weeks, I will be going to New Orleans for a month, to defrost. Well, to defrost while giving a series of talks on the liturgy and prayer in our Metairie book center. (Mark your calendars for the Thursday evenings from Jan. 20 to Feb. 10!) I may try to stream them; depends how I feel about the content--still pulling them together. Will let you know. If you are in the New Orleans area, I am also available to give talks in local parishes or for prayer groups.
Please add a (little) prayer that my back situation will resolve itself in a timely manner, so I can focus on getting those talks ready for the people of my home town. (King Cake, here I come!)
