Reasons I have been gone

Well it has been a month since I have been here. And it wasn't my doing. The government is at fault. They had me incarcerated in a hospital for over 27 days.

Not their fault really, just good care by the VA.
I went to the VA clinic to have a sore foot (that was turning black) checked out and they sent me to the ER at the local hospital. They quickly admitted me which was alright. Except that night I got up to go to the bathroom and had a heart attack.
If you are going to have a heart attack, a hospital is a good place to have one but don't plan on going home very soon. Two days later they airflighted me to the Denver VA Hospital.
While I was in there they amputated my big toe on the right foot and have me scheduled for a multiple bypass surgery just as soon as the can get all the infection gone from my foot.
They sent me home under a antibody therapy that I get by IV once a day. I get a home health care nurse that comes out to do the hard stuff.
Two weeks to 6 weeks I have to go back to Denver to have another foot surgery and then my bypass if all the infection is gone.

When I go back I am taking my laptop with me. That will solve the internet withdrawal I had.

Now I didn't even think about asking for the parts back. Would have made a great snack for the dogs.

Man, Moxnix, you've had quite the adventure. Good thing you have VA, at least.

I guess the stag party, with the dancing girls and kegstands and all are out this weekend, eh?

Actually I have had good luck with the VA medical system. They treat me really well -- slowly but well.

Daaaaaaamn, Mox, what a freaking ride! Seriously hope you're alright and get better and you're right, a hospital is the best place if you're gonna have a heart attack! Wow, I'm still shocked all that piled on at once...
