Latest Health Update From Bruce


I have been dealing with some serious health problems over the past five weeks — primarily a bacterial respiratory infection and issues stemming from that infection. I am currently using a nebulizer/albuterol and my doctor prescribed a more potent antibiotic, hoping that it will help my immune system fight off the infection. As of today, November 20, 2018, things remain the same. I am home bound for the foreseeable future. I have a doctor’s appointment scheduled for Monday. I will try to do a bit of writing as I am able. If this is the “end” for me, I want to go out writing. (I know, I know, gallows humor.)

Thank you for your understanding and support. I appreciate the thoughtful, kind words I have received from many of you. So far, no one has taken my sickness as a “sign” that God is fixing to send me to Hell — so that’s good, right? I will do my best to keep you informed as to how things are going for me.

If you are sitting (or standing) on a guest post, this would be a good week to send it my way. Thank you to those of you who have submitted guest posts. Your help is appreciated.

    Take good care, Almighty Bruce. Being a senior, I accepted the Pneumovax shot this year on top of a flu shot. Feels like somebody punched me hard in the upper arm but it might give some assistance as ol’ Winter rolls in. Rest up; your voice is missed. Always carry a big Bible into a hospital, to whack health care professionals with…. Make America great again! Be a Bible thumper!

    Hope you feel better soon, fellow traveler! If you have to enjoy your family with a mask and puffs from your aspirator, it’s all good.
