Monday, July 20, 2009 I Was Saying,

Well, I'm back after a brief interruption for a heart attack and bypass surgery. At least I didn't fall asleep at the computer, like some people.

Seriously, though, I want to thank all my friends (and I found out there were a lot more than I'd thought) for all the cards, well wishes and prayers while I was recovering. Actually, I'm still recovering, but I've been told I'd better get a blog post done today. I haven't really changed: I'm still basically lazy, and tend to put things off.

If you're going to have a heart problem, Tucson is a great place to have it. I was in 2 different hospitals, St. Joseph's and the Tucson Heart Hospital. The nurses, techs, and doctors...all the staff... were first rate in both facilities. One big surprise for me was mealtime at the Heart Hospital. The food was excellent, and I got to order from a widely varied menu. So much for a bunch of hospital food jokes.

I do find the recovery process a bit frustrating. Not getting energetic as quickly as I'd expected...I guess it all takes time.

Anyway, I'm on the mend, and they even let me keep my beard. So thanks again for all your kindness to me and my family, and I'll be back. And next time, I'll attempt an entertaining post.

Blog at ya later,
