FYI: I'm in the middle of a health issue

Just in case anyone doesn't know. I have developed chronic diverticulitis, which is going to require surgery. It has significantly slowed my roll, and I have lost 60 pounds in the last few months. I am scheduled for surgery in about 10 days, so I may again become scarce for a while. I'll try to stop in when I can. They are going to take a piece of my large intestine out and reconnect the rest. I am hoping this will be the end of it, but it's going to be a slow recovery. I've got to spend some time working on my general health because I've neglected it for far too long, and now I am paying for it. The things we do when we're younger do come back to haunt us eventually, so consider taking better care of yourself while you have the time. I know it isn't easy, but sometimes doing the hard thing is better in the long run.
