Health and Resolutions
Monday, December 05, 2011
I guess a lot has happened since the last time I checked in here. To make a long story short, I almost died. On my birthday, I went to the emergency room with severe abdominal pain, was diagnosed with gallstones, and scheduled surgery. During surgery, it turned out that my gallbladder was gangrenous, and if I'd waited any longer to have surgery, I could have died. Also, it turns out that my liver is shot from drinking, and my doctor pretty much made me swear to sobriety for the rest of my life.
So yeah, I guess I don't have any more excuses now.
I'd like not to waste my second chance, so I have two healthful goals in the next year. Well, "get healthy" may not be the most specific goal, but it's there and I need to do it. Also, currently, I've not had a drink in about six weeks. I miss beer and champagne, but I have to recall that there was a time, once, that I lived without those things.
So, those are my goals. Get healthy and stay sober.
