I tweeted about it yesterday, but I was too tired to write a blog (parents have to recover too when their child has been in the hospital). In any case: Inigo is back home, and he's recovering well. We thought he would be confined to his wheel chair, but we're happy to see that he's able to move around in the house using his crutches. We only use his wheel chair when we leave the house. He still has to be careful because his leg is full of stitches (staples actually), and he can't bend his left leg yet because it's now one centimeter longer (instead of the two centimeters that were planned).
... an old acquaintance:
As predicted last month, the stats for June aren't as good as the stats were for May.
For those who don't see the difference with the the naked eye, take a look at the graph from Alexa:
This is normal: people are starting to go on holiday. July and August will show the same trend, and in September, we'll start getting better results. Nevertheless: June was better than April (the Easter season):
A month ago, I'd been reading plenty of graphic novels, among others the "From Hell" series by Alan Moore. The "Jack The Ripper" story is situated in 1888, and I wandered through my library looking for a book about the same era, that's how I found the first book in this month's list:
As announced a while ago and repeated a good week ago, Inigo underwent surgery today. The idea was to replace his old prosthesis (the one that replaced his knee in 2008 as part of his cancer treatment) with a new one. The operation started at about 10:30 AM and would take about 2 hours. We saw people entering the Operation Room, and we saw the same people leaving the Recovery Room after one to two hours, but no word of our son.
Yesterday, I attended the event "The Future is Free" at the "NMBS loods" in Kortrijk. The "NMBS loods" is a nice location at walking distance of the station. In spite of the fact that the event was very interesting, the turnout was rather disappointing (I had expected to see more familiar faces: Ghent is only half an hour away if you travel by train). I hope this blogpost proves that Howest and The Studios deserve more attention in the future. Especially when they organize an event for free.
Strange: two weeks ago, I was a Networker with Klout score 42; today I'm a Specialist with Klout score 48:
I'm probably going to be very silent in the next few weeks. My son (see slides) needs major surgery on June 30. He'll be in a wheel chair all summer (maybe longer), and I've organized my work in a way that I won't be on line that much in July. For iText users: you shouldn't notice my absence if you follow the rules.
