Major Detour: but alive and (not quite) kickin'!

Thursday, November 2, 2017

Just a quick note... away from The Hangout and everything else due to sudden episode of diverticulitis with bowel perforation... leading to partial colectomy with a draining ostomy.  Active lifestyle and walking the beach the day before... spent 15 days in the hospital... finally home yesterday.  Totally drained and dealing with my new "challenges" but, very fortunate to have had successful surgery and good prognosis for bowel re-anastomosis in about 3-4 months.  My wife is exception as well... makes all the differences.

Not sure how to play a banjo as yet with the ostomy bag and healing incision, but ... i'll get something figured out, down the road.

Cheers to all: hope to be back soon!

Retired (11/13) Ob/Gyn physician... and my last practice was as a Faculty member in a Family Medicine residency program. Started a band for them... we actually had some very good musicians... but they have now graduated and i've moved. Interests other than music: tennis player/fan; biking and hiking (too close to the Rockies not to)... and attempting to remain fit and healthy for as long possible. My youth was (mis)spent in Atlanta... basically an east-coaster until moving west in 2007... but (update) returned to Georgia (SE coastal) in 2016. Naturalist (no religions... no gods)
