We do have a playful group here, but yes, all kidding aside we hope you heal quickly. Ask any questions, and enjoy the forum. The search feature can be really helpful too.
Your situation makes me think of what my husband went through about 3 years ago. He found out he had cancer, and between cancer and chemo he was mostly stuck in bed. When he was up, he spent alot of time on the computer learning about hydroponics. It was a really good learning time. But you'll have more than he did - this forum not only has alot to offer about beekeeping, but it's a good place to make friends and relieve boredom. We really have lots of fun.
So enjoy! And if you get as many laughs out of this place as I do, you should heal fast - laughter being good medicine and all. :)
