I'm typing this on my trusty Blackberry, which is about the only thing that didn't break down on me last weekend.
My main computer quit. My laptop quit. And all of my websites stemming from www.mrfire.com went down.
None of the above were connected in any way at all.
On Monday I went back into the recording studio to complete reading of my book Buying Trances.
But I did it in a lot of pain. By that night the stomach cramps were far worse.
I called my friend who is an M.D. And he sent me to ER. They ran tests and then scheduled me for an appendix removal. They did it too. It was my first ever surgery and first ever hospital stay.
I'm glad to be home.
I'm in pain and can't move much but all in all, all is well
What I find most interesting about all of this is my own attitude.
I was never angry or frustrated. I was more curious.
I'm reading a book called Choosing Reality. Its a Buddhist view of physics and the mind. I can't say I understand it but I can say I love my curious view of the bumps in life.
After all, I have much to be grateful for.
My father's appendix burst when he was ten. He was in the hospital 21 days with three tubes coming out his stomach to drain all the poison.
I am VERY lucky.
Friends sent me emails and amazon gift certificates. Pat O'Bryan even sent a note to his entire list about me.
I am VERY grateful.
No one knows what an appendix is for. Alan Abel once said on a radio show he thought it was a spare penis.
I LOVE humor.
Thank you for your love and support. I should be back online soon.
