The German finally had one of his long-awaited back surgeries. Who knows? If this one works out, he might not need to have the really major one that his doctors anticipate might be necessary. Anyway, that's why I haven't been writing. I'm trying to take care of him and keep him off of his feet, except for when he has to go to the bathroom. I tried to convince him to sit down and pee but he wasn't having it. Well, I've got to go now. Between unpacking boxes and taking care of my partner, I'm a little busy. Hopefully tomorrow will be a little bit better. VanGoghGirl will be coming home from by her best friend's house (where she had been staying so that she could get back and forth to school), and she'll be able to help out some until The German has recovered.
