It’s been a crazy week. I’m still getting back into the swing of things. This week has taught me to further focus on the things that make me happy and engaged. And to put all my eggs in my family and health baskets.

It’s odd that I’ve had a blog for so long and never really talked about myself that much. Maybe that will change now. I had a medical emergency that is now resolved, but was pretty scary for a while there. Deep vein thrombosis is when a blood clot makes it’s way into a major artery. Those are the highways to the heart and lungs, so it’s pretty dangerous.

I spent the better part of a week laying flat and worrying. What would my family do without me? Those kinds of things. Pretty terrible stuff to have on the top and back of the mind.

I’m out of the woods and getting back to normal. I’m taking this as a wake up call to get me health in order.

It feels good to write this. I guess the best part of all this was I was able to read about a couple topics I’m interested in. And I came up with a great joke.

If I were a Cardiologist who played trombone in a jazz band, I’d insist that the band name was Deep Vein Trombonesis

Maybe I shouldn’t work on my stand-up set while dealing with medical issues. Lol.
