Been a while
Been a while since I blogged, and a LOT has gone on. Besides the usual Holiday stuff in Decemeber, I just wasn’t feeling right.
On Jan 6th, I woke up with HORRID abdominal pain – I mean BAD. I had my wife take me to the emergency rooom at North Shore LIJ Manhasset. I was admitted to the hospital with acute pancreatitis. I was there until Jan 20th (aka 2 weeks).
It seems that this was caused by an extremely high triglyceride level (14000 – yes that is the right number of zeros)
While I was in the hospital, they also discovered that I am a Type II diabetic. They DID manage to get rid of the infection in my leg wound, and I’d say it’s about 70% healed now.
About 1-2 weeks after I got home, I started physical therapy, as I was extremely weak. That went very well, and I “graduated” on March 16th, in other words, when they did my reevaluation, I was too well to continue.
I finally got back to work on March 18th (yes, I was out 10 weeks)
When I got back to work, I joined the Reebok Gym across the street from work. So far I really like the place. I met with my personal trainer Spencer yesterday, and we setup a good routine. Today was the first weekday I missed going to the gym because my leg wound (remember that other 30%) was really aching. I may try to go at lunch.
