The Health Rundown:
Not too much to report. MS has been okay-ish. Just the usual things that pop up when I'm not getting enough rest. Still JC negative and last MRI was stable. Hooray! I did fall down the stairs and hurt my arm in October which was not good but all is better now.
Kidney stones are all gone! I still have a post related to that saga that's coming, featuring a very special song.
On the lady parts stuff, things are okay, I think? I started the menopause shots. At first things were normal but now I'm in hot flash city. A hot flash in the middle of a concert is super fun.
Where I've Been:
Where have I been? Just super busy. An above average number of gigs, for one thing. Opera, Symphony, special events, etc. This week is a little break in the clouds before Nutcracker next week. It's been great to have this much on my plate musically (including both extra challenging and extra fun stuff) but it's been tiring as well.
I've also been busy with other work. As is usual for me, I have dry spells in each of my many jobs and then they all crash in ALL AT ONCE with tons of things. I've been working too hard and not getting enough sleep. Which is my excuse for not visiting you here in MS Muse land.
One of those work things I've been up to is writing. Well, I'm always writing but it is usually ghostwriting so I can't share it as my own. But I have guest post status as a Patient Expert at WEGO Health. Here are a few things I've written, just so you can see that I can write professionally and not just in the laid back style you get here:
