I apologize to those of you who have been checking this blog in the hope of a little glimpse into our lives here in rural Japan.... the lives are going on, just with a slightly different twist to them!
Unfortunately life has dealt me a few hard blows over the last month and I have been in hospital for the last few weeks. Don't worry, nothing life threatening, but the need to slowly reduce medication means it is going to take more than another month before I will be able to be get back home.
This blog will therefore be on hold until then. I do have a private blog where I am writing about my hospital life here so that my family and friends can get all the information they need in one place. I'm guessing that I may eventually make it a public one (it is becoming less and less medical and more and more general Japan hospital life stuff!), but if there is anyone that would really be interested in reading it please send me a message and I can add you to the list.
Thank you for all the positive comments regarding this blog in the past - being part of a cyber community has been an interesting and supportive experience. It will return, but for now I am just dreaming of getting back into rural life....!
