On December 5th, P2 had major surgery on his shoulder. The doctor suspected nerve damage from the accident and proved to be correct. He may lose some grip in his right hand, but that is to be determined later after his physical therapy (that may cut down on the grab ass around here). He is doing well learning to be left handed.
As for me, I have taken on the unexpectedly large duties of maintaining, with his direction, the 'Diogenes Middle Finger' blog and 'Scene on the Radio' blog with help with the art from his niece, in addition to transcribing the columns he is committed to for this year. I had no idea how hard he was working, and I am exhausted. We have kind of exchanged roles around here, he walks around with my cameras taking covert pictures (see below ) and I spend most of my time doing studio business and in front of the computer monitors blogging away.
But I don't mind because my baby is home with me, and since Thanksgiving the house has been full of P2's touring musician friends who stay with us when playing here or in Dallas (girls could I tell some stories!) as well as family friends. It's really been a wonderful time as it always is here during the holidays. This year especially. My Mom and Dad are both coming to be with us this Christmas, neither having been able to be at the wedding, and this will be the first time P2 and my Dad have seen each other in three years. It is always a blast when those two get together! It's going to one hell of a Christmas dinner! The cats are already looking for hiding places!
P2 sends his love to you all.
