This is shaping up to be a strange season. Last week, while working in the garden, Nancy developed a slight pain in the right hip/butt area that grew very painful within 12 hours, spreading as far as the knee, and has been with her ever since. Apparently, she herniated another disk (similar, but more painful than the one she herniated in 1991). She is scheduled for back surgery Wednesday, but won’t be ready to travel or set up for the Cape Coral Arts & Music Festival next Friday. Cape Coral is the first of six art festivals scheduled on consecutive weekends, so we may have more cancellations before she gets better. We (and the doctors) are monitoring her condition carefully and I will keep you advised of any developments.
