I apologize that I haven’t posted in a bit. Due to a fairly surprising and sudden health diagnosis, I have found myself in the hospital since Monday night. Remember when I posted back on July 4th about some lightheadedness issues I was having? It would seem that those who erred towards a more serious diagnosis were closer to the truth. I’ll likely be in here for at least about a week longer, so long as all things go well. I’ll be okay, really – I just need to let the whitecoat army poke and prod me for a little while longer.

(by the way: please don’t ask me to go into detail about my condition, because for personal reasons – I am not yet comfortable doing that)

    Wow…I guess I’m glad to hear that you’re in the hospital and getting treated, rather than ignoring it, but it’s still troubling. My hands are a little tied from here, but if there’s anything I can do, let me know. Do send word when you know more – you can shoot me an email or something if you don’t want to post.

    Thanks for the kind note, bro. Check your gmail or yahoo mail for a note from me.

    I agree with AJ – bad but good.

    I hope I didn’t scare you the other day on Hampton – I saw you behind me and wanted to wave hello as you NEVER return my calls (grin).


    PS – One day, I’ll learn to leave messages.

    Man, do I ever feel like a douche for telling you to more or less “take it like a man”. Perhaps I’ll pay more attention to my own strange ailments.

    One of my good friends down here was recently stricken with a case of Vertigo… which also carried symptoms similar to yours… yet slightly more severe. Severe to the point where he couldn’t really stand up without his world spinning violently around him. Luckily he’s on the mend thanks to some rest and medication. Not fun for sure.

    Hope you get better soon.

    Hope to see you at work soon. That Staffing/Tech Support corner just isn’t the same without you. Also, accrual testing is not as “fun” without your wit. (Although Christy and Melissa did an awesome verison of the Balthasar song when they helped me last Friday).

    I’d have posted a rousing cheer of confidence earlier, but I just got internet up today. Not to mention I am bogged down with things of the moving and working sort. I hope that won’t persuade you to believe I am not behind your recuperation 100%, and am not entirely convinced your recovery will be a speedy one.
