An unfortunate update

A bad accident, and subsequent adventures in caregiving

For folks who haven't already heard, an update on why my responsiveness has sucked lately. My spouse fell while rock climbing in the climbing gym in mid May, sustaining a burst fracture to one vertebra. (Those are the bad ones - basically, the whole vertebra shatters and damages the spinal cord.) He had emergency surgery, followed by 9 days in the hospital, followed by another 11 days in rehab. He came home at the start of the week, then promptly had another setback. The prognosis is pretty good - he'll eventually be able to walk without a walker, probably, but recovery from spinal cord injury is measured in months to years, not weeks, and I'm now dealing with being his primary caregiver, along with keeping the kids and cats alive. Medical care in the US is such a mess - dealing with coordinating his care has eaten most of my life.

Anyway, long story short: I'm not taking new clients at least through the end of June, and probably the end of July. If you have a deposited job and haven't already heard from me, my apologies. I tried to contact everyone, but spotty internet, sleep deprivation, and living in the hospital and rehab facilities for three weeks made everything harder. If you need a refund on something because a delayed timeline doesn't work, please get in touch.

I am back at my desk today, and am really hoping to get back into the swing of things the rest of this week.
