To Dissident Voice Contributors, Readers, and Friends

I’m back!!!

It’s been a long time since I last edited submissions.  Having suffered what was described as “a major heart attack” on December 12, followed by several weeks in hospital, and recuperation at home, I feel confident that I can put my cardiac adventure behind me and carry on — a little more cautious, perhaps, but carry on nonetheless.

As some of you already know, I saw my cardiologist on June 12.  He beamed upon me and proclaimed “I fixed your heart.”  I could only beam back and utter a fervent “thank you”.  I floated home following the clinic visit.  “I fixed your heart!”  Four words that will forever soothe this apprehensive soul.

I want to thank those of you who sent emails inquiring about my health and offering your best wishes. Hearing from you made such a huge difference and brought so much comfort.  I want to especially thank DV’s part-time editor, Barbara MacLean, for her long distance support and generosity.  Thank you, Barbara!!

And HUGE thanks to Kim Petersen, DV’s former co-editor, for his excellent work in keeping DV going. Thank you, Kim!!

And now it’s back to work!!!  Yeah!!!
