I had the best of intentions to post a “Mondays with Mark” and a reflection on Original Sin and Romans 5.  But, instead, I spent most of the day in doctors’ offices, at the pharmacy, getting another MRI, and being fitted for a leg brace.

My disc herniation has worsened significantly, leading to “foot drop” in my left foot.  I’ll have a microdiscectomy next Wednesday.  I’m also going to winter camp with my kids’ school this Wednesday through Friday.

I’m going to do my best to keep up with posts, but I ask your patience as I battle through all this.
