Rain Delay

Well, it was my hope and plan to tell you all that today I unretired, and was sworn in again as a police officer with my old department. The best laid plans.

Last Monday I had my second-ever trip to the ER. I don't go down easy, but this brought me to my knees. In the intervening week, I've been back there two more times. The situation simply is not resolving, and I am as uncomfortable as I've ever been in my life. Of course, I can't get in to see the specialist who can hopefully resolve this until Friday. I will simply have to suck it up until then.

So, Officer Cynical is going away for a while. I'm out of new posts, and right now I don't have the oomph to generate more. I'd hoped being back on the street would give me a new source of fun stories, but that's now on hold. I don't know for how long.

I'll keep you posted.

So sorry to hear you're temporarily out of commission...do whatever you need to do. I wish you a swift recover and will be waiting for your trademark wit when you're able to return to posting. Godspeed.

Don't watch too much of Strunk White on the boob tube while you recover! It's not good for your blood pressure.

Please don't "unretire" just to get new blog fodder! Do what's best for your family. You and your wife need to be in agreement about the future. Of course, it sounds like your health is having a BIG opinion on the subject right now. Praying for your complete recovery. As long as you're home recuperating, the dogs will make sure you don't get into trouble, right?

Please come back when you can. We love you like we love our morning coffee.

I join with all the others in wishing you a speedy recovery. I know you'll be having plenty of "golden" support - if they make room for you on the couch, that is...please be well.

I hope all works out for you in the best way possible.

This web site has always been on my list of blogs to check daily. I love your writing and your stories. I'm sorry there won't be more but I understand.

Keep fighting the good fight. No matter what happens or how it works out, this world has been made better by your presence in it. Thanks for that.

So, you went down; hey, as long as you can get back up everything will be good!

Take care.

Oh no! Get well, I do hope it's nothing too serious.

Another lurker who loves your writing style and stories - please get well soon, then work on writing a book for that additional income, instead of "unretiring."

Heidi said...

Very sorry to hear about Zeke. You guys circle the wagons as long as you need to. I''m all too familiar with that pain. :-(
