He’s back…better than he was before. Better. Stronger. Faster…

I’m writing this using Dragon naturally speaking dictation software. isn’t technology grand? I just got home from three days in the hospital where my shattered right elbow was replaced with a brand-new titanium one.  I asked the surgeon to install a laser cannon and a tivo remote while they were at it, but they wouldn’t do it. It’s no fun  having two broken arms. You can’t do anything for yourself.  You can’t eat.  You can’t pee. You can’t button your shirt. You can’t scratch your…well, you get the point. I find myself being far more intimate with my wife than I ever imagined. I’m sure shes as thrilled about it as i am. my daughter is getting a big kick out of feeding me, though. I just wish she’d stop speaking to me in baby talk.

I will try to keep this blog up-and-running…I’ll share with you my efforts to continue writing and producing "Missing"….and making the july1 deadline on my next Diagnosis Murder book… while dealing with my two broken arms.  And I might even find a few Other Things to Rant about. So stick around… and forgive the typos!

UPDATE: I will be attending the LA Times festival of books this weekend. I don’t know if I’ll actually be signing my books — but I will be showing up at all of my scheduled panels and signings.

  1. Lee,
    Its good to see that you are in good spirits.
    Are you planning on attending the LA TImes Festival next week? Someone has got to keep an eye on that Tod fella, don’t ya think?
    Seriously, I wish you a speedy recovery and all the best.

  2. Lee,
    Glad to hear you have Dragon. Hopefully you’ll be back to typing again soon. I can only imagine what it must be like.
    So, does a titanium elbow improve your golf drive?

  3. Remember with this piece of software the MORE you use it the better (accurate) it gets. So don’t be discouraged in the beginning. Just keep giving it the corrections. It will remember those mistakes and try not to use them again.

  4. Lee,
    It’s good to see you’re back on track. Hopefully you’ll have a much better rest of the year. And, what a great sense of humour your daughter has. Can’t imagine where she gets that from! ;^)
    Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

  5. Lee, I’m glad to hear all went well with
    the operation. Now just take it easy, hm I guess you have no choice…and get well soon.
    Oh and remember, you must be on your best behaviour at home…because you wouldn’t want both your wife and daughter to go on strike.
    Take care Lee….
