Update:

Hmm, Anon beat me to it.

First of all, I want to thank you for the kind words of encouragement. What happened was my wife has Hashimoto Disease. It has to do with Thyroid anti-bodies which in turn triggered a really powerful flare-up of Rheumatoid Arthritis. She was virtually bed ridden with pain and extreme fatigue.

Running a blog while taking care of five little kids and the household on my own was just not an option. I thought that blogging had come to an end.

However many weeks it’s been later, Wendy is somewhat improved. She is on Prednisone and pain meds (hopefully neither for too long) which have given back some mobility and energy to her.

I’ve decided to blog again but no longer almost exclusively about atheism. For that reason (most people would associate this blog wih atheism) I’ve started a different blog “Thesauros” which is Greek for "Storehouse of information / wisdom."

It can be found at thesauros-store.blogspot.com

Again, thank you for your encouragement.

Many weeks? You stoped for 18 days you funny guy... and you put a note now that we have "found out" your new blog that you started but using the same account... lol!

At least it's good to hear that your wife is better. Take care! cya!

I sure did miss you big guy. I'm happy your wife is feeling better. I like what PersonalFailure said. Dito.

Now I'll need one of my kids to make a new bookmark for me. I still can't figure how to do that.

Late, feeno

So glad that your wife is better...

The thyroid (master gland-I call it) can give us a scare--I was diagnosed w/ Grave's disease some years ago-incurable...so I can empathize with you both...
My prayers for you...

I wonder what sins your wife commited that made God inflict her with disease like that.
Or perhaps he was punishing you through her suffering.
