I'm Alive!

 That's not a tongue in cheek statement.  A few days after that last post, I was in the hospital undergoing ablative chemotherapy in preparation for a bone marrow transplant.  It's been seven weeks of sheer hell, but it's over and I'm still among the living.  I'm still rec-ing for Know-It-Alls, so, even though I'll be having ups and downs and it may take me awhile to get to them, I still want your fiction recs.  So, if anyone's out there, bring 'em on (I *need* something to read while I'm home recovering)!

Holy crap. Welcome home. May the transplant be effective and the weeks of chemotherapy a nightmare you never have to experience again. I bow down before your powers of endurance.

Thank you. I seem to be good so far, though I am more tired than I've ever been . . . on most days it's a chore to do more than get out of bed, dress and pretend to do something resembling normal. But I get stronger every day, I'm starting to look less like a space alien, and my daughter is starting to behave as is she's a normal 11 year old again, so life is *definitely* good.
