I had hoped I would have better news for those of you in Europe who were hoping to have a LRK sighting this year, but my husbandâ€™s perilous state of health means Iâ€™m going to have to cancel the UK leg of the September tour, and probably cancel the Italian conference as well. And I was really looking forward to both.
Noel had a stroke the first part of July, and in the course of treating it they discovered that he had stomach cancer. Heâ€™s now had the surgery and was recovering from both, although setbacks and chronic uncertainty seem to be a dailyâ€”or hourlyâ€”part of life around here. And I canâ€™t see taking off for a month right at the moment.
I presume we will simply reschedule the events, either for next spring or the summer.
As far as I know, Iâ€™ll be able to make it to BoucherCon the end of September, and to the Chicago event the day before the conference begins.
Thanks to all of you who expressed concern and good wishes. Heâ€™s due to come home from the hospital in a couple days, and without spending four or five hours a day on hospital visits, I may be able to pick up TOUCHSTONE again.
