Laid up. No Blogs

george-headI slipped in the shower and hit my head a couple of nights ago. Blood everywhere. Couldn’t stop the bleeding. Brought to mind that line in Macbeth where Lady Macbeth says: “Who would have thought the old man had so much blood in him?”

Sandra called 9-1-1, and the paramedics came, bandaged my head and transported me to the emergency room at Lakeland Regional Health Center. A young doctor showed up and stitched and stitched until he finally stopped the flow of blood. Brain scans and shoulder x ray were negative.

But can’t type very well with this bruised shoulder.

I’m back home under Sandra’s care, and will resume blogging as soon as I am able.

Special thanks to my daughter Grace who phoned our neighborhood Publix from Miami and talked a good Samaritan named Bob into delivering us groceries and cat food as I certainly was in in condition to go shopping.

I am a Jamaican-born writer who has lived and worked in Canada and the United States. I live in Lakeland, Florida with my wife, Sandra, our three cats and two dogs. I like to play golf and enjoy our garden, even though it's a lot of work. Since retiring from newspaper reporting I've written a few books. I also write a monthly column for Jamaicans.com
