My absence has been lengthy, but I have not been silent. Rather, I have been making noises elsewhere.
My son was diagnosed with Lymphoma in Feb 2008, and he underwent a course of chemotherapy and was then clear of the cancer for a few months, but by December it had returned. He is now undergoing another treatment plan, and I have started a parallel blog called Joshua Tree (no reference to the band U2) to keep friends, family and interested others informed of his progress. Feel free to visit us there. The past month has been particularly difficult for my family, so I have been focusing my blogging attention over there, but I will be back at Carbon Copy soon.
