Returning from the disabled list

I've been absent from the blog and from work for a while.  Back before Thanksgiving I suffered a detached retina which required immediate surgery.  The procedure went well and the vision in that eye should gradually return to normal over the next few weeks.  The biggest challenge was the post-care which required me to lie face-down for 17 consecutive days to allow everything to heal properly.  It took a few days to adjust to that awkward positioning, but after that the challenge was more mental than physical.  In that, modern technology came to my rescue.  Between an iPad and a laptop, both positioned on the floor, I was able to watch TV (I saw a lot of football and hockey), surf the web, and enjoy all kinds of movies streamed via Netflix.  All that made time pass quickly enough. 

Today is my first day back at the registry.  Ironically, at the same time that I was out injured, my office computer died (a sympathetic reaction?) so this morning was spent putting its replacement into operation, catching up on emails and doing the end of month reports I usually have finished a few days into the new month (my apologies to anyone inconvenienced by that delay).  In the courthouse lobby this morning, a landlord I know who was waiting for Housing Court to open asked about recent trends in foreclosures.  I confessed to losing track of that and other statistics, so I do have a bit of catching up in that regard to do over the next few days.  In conclusion, thanks to Tony Accardi and Dick Regan and all the other registry employees for allowing me to convalesce without worrying about the office and for making the transition back to work such an easy endeavor.
