Although I took a break starting in late May, my health issues came to a head in late June, when I apparently suffered a heart attack. I was hospitalized for nearly a week and am still at home recovering. I'm going to try to go back to work on the 17th, provided my cardiologist clears me.
I feel worlds better than I did prior to my hospitalization, largely because I'm acting like an adult and actually following my doctors' instructions. We've got me on insulin now, even though we're still titrating the dosage. I'm following an appropriate diet plan and the weight is dropping off, although that's largely my body coping with the edema. I feel really good, although I have at times overestimated just how much I'm able to do. Given that Georgia and Alabama are already flirting with three-digit daytime temperatures, it would be draining even if I weren't recovering from a heart attack.
On the hobby front, all that has gone on for me was finally receiving my Relic Knights Kickstarter rewards (after two years) and I've pledged for the Zombicide Season 3 Kickstarter. That's about it. Oh, and "Sleeping Dragon, Rising Sun" came out for "In Her Majesty's Name." Couple that with the IHMN Gothic releases Craig's been posting on the official blog and I'm as happy as a clam.
It's my birthday next week. I turn 46. In the words of David Niven, I believe, "If I'd known I would live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself."
Take care, everyone. I'm back, and I'll soon be plunging you back onto my steampunk London creations for "In Her Majesty's Name."
Back to the boards, everyone, and I look forward to seeing you across the table soon.
