I am sorry to report that I won't be going to Romania after all. As most of you know I have spinal cord damage which resulted in my arms being partially paralyzed. Over the past six or eight weeks my arms and hands have gotten increasingly painful, so I went to the doctor. He sent me for an MRI which revealed a bulging disk just below the infarction. A bulging disk isn't necessarily a big deal, but he said the exertion of the trip could exacerbate it, and it's in a bad location for that. There's also always the possibility of falling on the ice over there. So I am very disappointed, but there you have it. I may go in the spring, but for now, I can't go.
