Have I Got a Story for You

I made plans for getting solidly back on my blogging stories, ideas and creative photography ideas.

You’ve heard that expression about making plans and hearing God’s laughter? That’s what got in the way this time. It wasn’t for lack of performance in posting or finding material and ideas to share. It was a bit of a health hit.

Then I spent a week in hospital

I won’t get into too much detail about what has me knocked on my ass at the moment. It is an unusual thing. I had an abscess that went septic on my iliopsoas muscle. It’s one of those muscles that runs through your butt area.

iliopsoasHere is what Wikipedia shares about that muscle. “The iliacus originates in the iliac fossa of the pelvis. The psoas major unites with the iliacus at the level of the inguinal ligament and crosses the hip joint to insert on the lesser trochanter of the femur. The iliopsoas is classified as an “anterior hip muscle” or “inner hip muscle”.” This causes an amazing amount of pain. I am now on rehab road trying to get the pain out and mobility back in. This happening while I need to infuse liquid antibiotics via a pick line three times a day.

Enough about that.

This was a reminder to not take even the simplest things for granted. I had all sorts of plans and ideas and I guess the universe has asked me to slow it down a bit.

I am working on some new blog posts as I also work on the recovery process. Just sent you guys a great deal on the purchase or upgrade of Skylum’s Aurora 2018 HDR software. (see details here only good through Sunday) Remember that using the code COATES will save you an additional ten bucks!

  1. Yes well I know how you feel, accept my butt is ok, its all in my head (neck). I had to have my neck fused a year ago because a disc was collapsing so much I could hardly use my right arm. I had no choice but to get the fusion (clearly the best long term fix) or loose use of my whole arm. But I didn’t realize it would take 1-1/2 years minimum to heal. I guess when they go inside your neck and chop your head off its going to take time. Good luck with your butt thing.

  2. Glad you are on the recovery road. I had a fantastic 45 min helicopter rid to the nearest catheter lab to get a stent in my heart in December. Crimped my style for a while, but am hiking again. It’s hard to keep photographers home for long.
