Out of the hospital

Still not feeling great because, headache, and oh yeah an appendectomy involves making holes in your abdominal muscles, which you use way more than you realize.  This means I won’t be returning to work until next week, which paradoxically may mean I get a lot of writing (including, but not limited to, blogging) done this week. Writing may actually help me not go crazy from boredom while recovering. That or I’ll feel too crappy even to write. We’ll see.

EDIT: A couple things, lest anyone worry about me: first, note that the time zone of this blog is not my personal time zone. Second, the thought that I might do a lot of writing in the next few days was written in the context of being bored out of my mind during much of my day and a half of in-hospital recovery. I had little to do for fun beyond messing around on my phone and re-reading parts of a book I’d already read. So yeah.

    Ugh, recovering from surgery of any kind sucks. Hope you’re feeling back to at least semi-normal soon!

    Dude, go to bed. Give me a topic, I’ll write a post for you…

    trust me.

      FYI, it’s 1 in the afternoon where I am. All times on my blog are US eastern time, based on a guess that a plurality of my readers are on Eastern time, but I didn’t actually post this at 10-something at night.

      So I might take a nap some time this afternoon/evening, but no, I won’t be staying up late to write this stuff.

      The Dan Savage post, incidentally, went up after midnight my time, but I had scheduled it in advance, and was soundly asleep when that happened.

    These times when you’re not in a condition to leave home really make you appreciate the extensive delivery system here, yeah?

    Hey Chris!

    Glad to hear that you are out of the hospital and on the mend. In the end I suspect that you’ll be able to run faster and jump higher without the dead weight of your appendix hampering you. All’s for the best in this best of possible worlds, right?
