Slow Blogging the Week


My blog output this past week has been below normal because I’ve been dealing with a rather nasty case of acid reflux. During the first half of the week, I only got about 2 hours of sleep each night. Finally, I found a proton pump inhibitor that got the problem under control, and I’ve been catching up on sleep.

I hope to get back up to speed over the weekend, and I intend to participate in The Other Podcast on Saturday.
