…and once again I’m going to be returning to the hospital. Not immediately. But yesterday I got the call from my doctor. My surgery date is May 15.
I’m surprised it’s so soon. 3 weeks from today.
It’s a little bit scary, to be honest. I’m glad it’s happening, because that means that the gradually-worsening hell I’ve been living through for the past year and a half may soon be over. But it’s still a bit scary, because although I’ve been in the OR before (only a few weeks ago), this one’s going to be my first major surgery. The kind where they fully put me to sleep and start opening up parts of my body with a sharp instrument.
After the surgery, I’m going to be out of commission for a while. I already have the forms telling me that I won’t be able to return to work for 6 weeks after, and I expect a good half of that time will involve me lying in bed not able to do too much. Or so I hear from people who’ve undergone similar surgeries, anyway.
So where does that leave me when it comes to Bibliotropic? Well, I technically do have enough backlogged reviews to keep plenty of content going during that time, but I thought I’d try something a little different. I’m opening up the blog to guest posts. I’m putting out the call.
So, bloggers, reviewers, and authors, if you want a chance to ramble about something on someone else’s blog, now’s as good a time as any. I’m looking for a total of 18 guest posts, to be posted here between May 15 and June 2. If you’re interested in doing a guest post here during that time, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Preferably posts about things related to fantasy and speculative fiction, fitting the theme here. Other than that, topics are wide open.
Thanks again for all the wonderful support I’ve been getting through this, and for anyone who considers doing a guest post here to cover the time I’ll be out of commission.
