Through the hospital window

Heard in dawning light


(Thank you, my good blogsphere friends for so many kind messages! I’m still in the hospital. Might take some more weeks. I’ll be back as soon as discharged.)

      Thank you. Out of the woods. But may have to stay in the hospital whole this year. The publisher kept working and my second book is due to be out soon. Will send you pdf when I can. Thanks again.

    • AshiAkira says:

      I never know how to thank you enough for your kindness. As you may have noticed, I’ve been in hospital since Oct. 1. Out of the woods now, but I might have to be hospitalized till Dec. After being discharged, I need some time to regain the strength. In the meantime, publisher kept working on the manuscript for my second book. Maybe out in a month or so.
      Than you again.

      Thank you again.

    Take care and get well soon . I had to check your blogsite on my own because I have not been getting any new posts from you.

    • AshiAkira says:

      Thank you. Actually, I’m in the hospital. Looks like I’ll have to stay until December before discharged. Then I’ll try to regain the strength to keep on going. In the meantime, I had submitted the manuscript for my second book to the publisher before I was hospitalized on Oct. 1, and the publisher kept working on it so that the book may be out in a month or so. Thanks again.

    I hope you’re ok now, grandpa!
    My thoughts are with you.
    Mo-hugs and many kisses ❤

    • AshiAkira says:

      I’ve been in hospital since Oct. 1. For the first couple of weeks, I couldn’t move at all because of a tremendous pain. Now I’m completely from the pain and feeling great. But I have to go through a physical rehabilitation because I became unable to move my body well. I guess I’ll have to stay in the hospital quite a while more.
      I sent to the manuscript for my second book long before I was hospital. So it’s on it’s way to be published.
      I don’t have the strength enough yet, so forgive me if I can’t wright you.
      xoxo ❤ 🙂

    I just learned today of your bout with ill health, and, though sad to hear you were unwell, I’m very glad you are on the path to recovery. I’ve been absent from cyberspace myself a lot recently, & wondered why your haiku were missing on my intermittent visists. Best wishes for further speedy recovery, and for the success of your book(s)…


    • AshiAkira says:


      Thank you for such a kind message. I don’t fully understand docs’ language. But, true,
      I’ll be alright, though it might take some more weeks. Then, I’ll have regain the strength. About my second book, I sent them the manuscript a long before I was hospitalized. And I expect I will be out pretty soon.

      Thank you again.
