My personal journey has been rough this year but, unlike the Mets, I've had some positive news recently. Lisa has mostly recovered from a bout of COVID that she contracted in the hospital. Somehow, thanks to vaccines and some precautions we took when she returned home still positive for the virus, I have managed to stay COVID negative.
In another promising development, the setback I suffered rehabbing from back and neck surgery is being treated non-surgically with a course of steroids. Fingers crossed that I can avoid my fourth spinal surgery in just over a year. I just hope that, at age 62, I can also avoid back acne from the 'roids.
