23 DEC 09

It's been awhile since the last blog posting. . . and much has transpired.
In my last posting, Rob had been in the ER of Danbury Hospital.
He was admitted and spent two days there. The diagnosis was a Vasovagal

At discharge, he was admonished to take it easy whilst playing music. . .
Yeah, right. . . they've never seen Rob play. He cannot keep still while playing.
Even sitting, as he does with The Dukes And Dutchess, he is moving
to the beat. Watch him here (with The Midnight Blues):

Joey Vee became a proud father.
An eight pound boy named Joey IV.

I haven't seen the baby yet.
I've had medical problems that are keeping me housebound.
Back in '93, I had a heart attack (MI) which left my heart scarred.
Well, on the 15th of last month, as I was watching a football game on TV,
the scar tissue interrupted the electrical impulses of my heart, causing it to jump
into ventricular tachycardia. It began to run at 206 beats per minute. . . nearly fainted,
almost died. The EMT could not find a pulse nor get a blood-pressure reading. He wondered why I was still conscience. In the ER, the doctors stopped, then restarted, my heart.
I've, since, had a defibrillator implanted in my left chest wall. It's to prevent this
happening again. Meanwhile. . . I'm prohibited from driving a car until the middle
of February next year.

During the surgery the doc must have manipulated the hell out of my shoulder. . .
I couldn't move it for three weeks. Even sitting at the computer hurt.
That's why I've been absent for so long. That pain is nearly gone now. All that
remains is for me to heal and become accustomed to my new medicines.
