So due to unforeseen complications, my homecoming was delayed by a day or so. That also means my therapy is going to start a day later, but who’s counting? If you haven’t already read it, Dan Fost’s article in the New York Times outlines some of my vices. Believe me: my Mom has been giving me an earful. Your overwhelming response — thousands of emails, hundreds of voicemails and a bonsai — I cannot thank you enough for your wishes. Let me just say that your prayers are the reason I am going to be able to blog again. For next few months, my focus will be on rebuilding my body and mind and taking it slow. Hopefully you will come back and share in the process.

I also want to thank a service called GotVoice. It is sort of like Yahoo for voicemail — a nifty web-based voicemail management system. I had signed up for it before the holidays to “review” the service. It worked with my iPhone, my AT&T line and my softphone VoIP service. It pulled the voicemails from the various systems and put them in the order received. More importantly, it sent me a transcript of the voicemails in the email inbox. In less that 50 minutes I read your sentiments. Some of the transcriptions were not too good, but I got the feelings loud and clear.

Thank you all, and slowly, I will call you back.

  1. Om – good to see you back here but really… do take some time off before returning to writing full time. Cleansing/rebuilding the mind comes first – the bloglines can wait.

  7. Om,

    Time off is as important as rest when it comes to your health. Take more time off as your team has got your blog covered.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery,
