Live (thankfully) from Carbondale Memorial Hospital.


I took a short swim in Little Grassy Lake Monday after work. And developed atrial fibrillation. Feels like a very fast, irregular heartbeat, with the occasional strong pulse. Like a bunch of hyperactive worms where your heart should be. I don't recommend it.

Kate and a couple of friends rushed me to the hospital, where this afternoon the very able staff shocked my heart back into a normal rhythm. We hope to go home tonight, tomorrow at the latest.

I guess life just wasn't interesting enough. I'll most likely be fine and 100% soon. Kate's taking great care of me. I'm very glad to be OK, thanks to her and the wonderful staff here. '

UPDATE: Got to go home Tuesday night, feeling great..
