Out of the Hospital and Back at Home

Well, it looks like I got a break. I will not be needing surgery to fix my gallblabber after all. However, this doesn’t mean I won’t need to take care of it in the future. The doctor wants to run another blood test a week from today to see how I am progressing. He asked me to reduce the fat in my diet and basically live a healthier lifestyle. In other words, if I’m going to review any restaurants in the near future, it better be one that serve healthy food (is there such a thing?).

Events like these always make you reflect on what is truly important in life. It really doesn’t matter if you have all the money in the world but have bad health. I have been living a pretty unhealthy lifestyle with all the eating out and lack of exercise. I think it’s time for a lifestyle reassessment. Also, being in the hospital for two days reminded me that I need to update my will.

I want to thank all the readers who sent me get well wishes on the blog and on Twitter. It really does mean a lot to me. Blogging from the hospital was a unique experience but it’s one I rather not do again. Here’s a quick video I shot from my hospital room.
