This is a the answer I give to a lot of people who ask me how I’m doing. I found out a long time ago that people really don’t want to hear someone complain all the time. I also understand that there are some people who genuinely care about how you are doing and if they really want to know I will tell them. Okay, so most of you really do want to know how my health is, right?
I am going for my first check up since my heart attack in November. I kind of got lost in the system I guess and just out of nowhere I get a call that I have an appointment with my cardiologist. I have been a little disappointed this time with my progress. With all my previous heart attacks I seemed to snap back and could do most of the things that I was doing before the attacks. This time it has been different. My energy level is a lot lower and I seem to hit that energy wall a lot sooner. Thankfully I am still functional and I am able to still do a lot of the things I enjoy.
I guess the biggest problem is getting it in my mind that there are some things I just can’t do anymore. Life is good though. I made jewelry this weekend and I started working on some artwork with copper wire. I will be sharing some of that later.
I got a great surprise in the mail. Michael Phelps, creator of Life on 66 comics sent me a copy of his new book containing all the comics through 2012. It was autographed with a hand drawn picture of yours truly. He has used me as a character in several strips and he even put a link to my comic site in his book. That is one of the most awesome things that has happened to me in my short webcomic career. I hope to blog more about this later this week after I check out some things with Michael. If you haven’t checked out his strip you can go to http://www.lifeon66.com/ and give it a go. It would also be nice if you would buy a book.
New comic tomorrow at http://gatorhead.wordpress.com
