My chest hurts from being cut open and my ribs spread so that the cardiac surgeon could perform the operation.
While nowhere near as life threatening as the aortic aneurysm I experienced back in 2007, my recent artificial heart valve replacement surgery was a necessary procedure. Otherwise, the calcium build up on the old valve would have reached life threatening levels.
So where does all this lead?
|One should listen to their Muse.|
I have follow up appointments with both my regular cardiologist and the heart surgeon in November.
In the meantime, I am sitting at my computer trying to accomplish what I can.
Once I was able to sit down and concentrate for more than a few minutes at a time, it took me a couple of days just to catch up with my e-mails and all the well wishers out there.
Now I am trying to get back to writing, but at the moment am not setting any speed records doing so.
Still have the unfinished SCIENCE FICTION PROJECT and the SHERLOCK HOLMES story I started before current events loomed on the horizon.
But right now the only thing my Muse is saying is "Take your time and heal first."
