Meta: Announcement

Ms. Manitoba just called to say her surgery went fine, and although she won't be blogging for a while (just like Milagrito's spokesfeline Sirenita Lake), she'll be back as soon as she's able.

So that's the second blogger from this fine establishment who's been under the knife. (Sirenita Lake had a hip replaced about a month and a half ago.) Ms. Manitoba now has a new knee.

Next under the knife is Yours Truly, who will also have a new knee to boast of. Meanwhile, we take our disgusting medications and loll about in a state of witlessness. At least there's no pain. Court hearing in a couple of weeks (fighting with the insurance provider) and possibly surgery in January.

FoTPC, that leaves you and me to hold the fort till then, kid. Although Milagrito will probably be back soon.

Hi TPC, its great to hear Ms. Manitoba is doing fine! I hope she heals up fast and is back on her feet soon. And good luck on your court hearing. These stinking insurance companies are all about denying coverage and maximizing profit so they can pay their evil CEO's a billion+ a year. I still wonder why we can't have single payer here like other advanced nations. It's insane that we don't. Anyway, I'll try and come up with a good post now and again. In the meantime, take care of that knee!

Ms. Manitoba, I hope you're feeling better by the day!

And oh, the tales I could tell of insurance company iniquity! I hope you trounce your insurer in court, TPC, and can get on with the surgery you need. Waiting is just awful; the uncertainty is worse yet.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and encouragement! I'm doing very well. And I'll be blogging soon.

Keep on truckin' ...
