Lucky to be alive, and grateful

I owe you an explanation about where I have been or not been - as on these pages. To mangle a bit of Charles Dickens, these could have been the worst of times had it not been for a quick-thinking son, our family doctor who immediately placed me in the intensive care unit at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta and into the hands of some dedicated professionals there.
