How is Tanta?

by Calculated Risk on 7/03/2008 02:49:00 PM

Whenever Tanta doesn't post for a few days, I receive several emails asking about the health of my good friend and co-blogger. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and concern.

First, Tanta posted as recently as Tuesday: When In Doubt, Blame the Accountants

Second, I spoke with her at length on Monday, and she assured me she is OK. Her health is a private matter, but she has disclosed this before: Tanta is on extended medical leave recovering from cancer treatment. Fortunately her cancer is in remission; unfortunately the effects of the cancer treatment linger on.

She is currently experiencing some back pain, and that limits her time at the computer. As we all know - see the UberNerd posts - Tanta writes very detailed and informative posts, and that takes extensive computer time.

I've encouraged her to write a few shorter posts now and then until her back recovers. Meanwhile, thanks to everyone for your thoughts.
