greetings from the VA Medical Center

Was admitted yesterday from the vascular clinic and will be here untiil at least Monday when the docs are going to poke around iin the new wound, remove whatever foulness they find, and then weld me up again. P and terminally cute infectious disease doc's boss have broken me of making references to "laudable pus" and amputation jokes. Much thanks to P for bringing Cowzilla, nose hose, & Baseball Prospectus today, not to mention moral(e) support last night.

Ug. Get better.
Maybe time to talk to doc about some sort of serious (inpatient?) or something crash weight loss? This shit is not good :(

Sorry to hear this. Take care of yourself.

(On a maybe/maybe not relaed note, how's your mood?)

Thanks. I'm a little depressed due to the circumstances, of course, but not morbidly so.

Crash weight loss would actually cause more problems than it would solve. digex and I have been talking about the zero-carb diet, and I think this is the route I'm going to take...8 pounds/month is realistic, not risky to health, and would drop me to ~300 by this time next year.
