Short term.

The first part of the week was spent recovering from Conflikt and our trip to Seattle. (Hope to yet do a con report.) Had a fabulous time at the con and exploring Seattle. I think what was most wearing, was the red-eye flight back overnight Sun-Mon. Tired as we were, we could not sleep on the flight. I kept up with my cardio workouts at the hotel and that felt good. But there were some troubling moments where my heartbeat was doing some weird things. I was warned that this might occur sometimes, but had felt nothing like it until this past weekend. I was cleared by my doctors to make this trip, but I fear I may have overdone a bit.


Long term.

I am often asked how I am doing. It is a complicated question. The easy answer is that I am doing well. Overall this is true. I am still well ahead of the curve in recovery goals. I feel and want and expect to be farther along. This is frustrating. The truth is I am still in some amount of pain most of the time. I tire easily and still get winded some while singing. Then there was the weird heartbeat spells while I was in Seattle this weekend.

So I am recovering well, but am impatient. I have to learn to take the time for it. I have no other choice.

It is good to hear from you at all. I will call you at some point in here and we can discuss whether you feel ready for a two-guitar jam, like that last one.

Glad you had a fun time and by all reports it was a great con. Take it easy my friend!

I'm glad that you're ahead of the curve, but complaining about it not being fast enough. It means that you really want to get back to "normal" as soon as possible. Just don't push it too hard and hurt yourself.
