March Update

I’m mainly posting today to let everyone know that I’m healing very well from my outpatient procedure last month.  My surgeon concurs!  He’s a good man, and he took very good care of me, as did my immediate family & in-laws (outlaws, really) and all of the St. Vincent’s staff.  For those who do not know, we removed my gallbladder on February 8.  I’ve experienced only minor differences in what I can eat after the procedure, which is a big relief considering some of the troubles that other people have gone through.  Don’t do that Google search unless you just REALLY want to know.

This month I’m staying at home to record more new stuff for all of you, to wrangle my taxes, and to get some more concerts confirmed!  Meanwhile, I had wonderful adventures last month, before and after recovering at home, at Glimmerdark in NJ and at PantheaCon in CA.  I’m so very grateful to all the facilitators and friends who helped me get there and back, and to everyone who supported the concerts my bandmates and I were lucky enough to give!  Betsy and I also had two little concerts, one at The Sacred Well in Portland, OR and the other at our beloved SoulFood Coffeehouse in Redmond, WA.  The Portland show was on the evening of my birthday, and I couldn’t have wished for a better crowd or a sweeter night.
