MTM came through the procedure well and is recuperating at home. The fracture was more complex than the surgeon anticipated. He’ll be in a sling at least two more weeks. I’m not sure what will happen afterward. He’s a great patient. Always positive. He doesn’t complain.
We’re both grateful things aren’t worse.
Several people have asked about the status of our Thanksgiving trip. We are set to leave Wednesday morning. As long as MTM doesn’t move his shoulder, he can be anywhere. We’re both grateful for this respite from Life.
For those of you reading advance copies of Not Without My Father, thank you for giving your time, eyes and gray matter to this effort. Because of everything that’s happened, I’m in the Pit of Despair with this project, with so many things to do and not enough years of days to check them off my list.
Reading your advance reviews has been a gift to me, and I appreciate those of you who have done them more than I can say. Whenever I want to quit (and I want to quit every five minutes right now), I let something you wrote talk me out of it.

Several national media outlets and large book review sites have requested copies for possible review. Your willingness to help get this advance copy established may tip one or two toward selecting it. Really. Thank you. So, so much.
If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope you Make a Memory to hold close to your heart, to buoy you when you miss someone, to remember people who matter.
