Fall

Tomorrow I get new students. I am thankful for that opportunity and for the pleasure and honor to serve them.

Recently I ended up with a gastro intestinal bleed… and it was both a disgusting and humiliating experience. What started out in the late morning as a bit of blood in the toilet progressed to lots of blood flowing freely and filling the gurney I was laying in.

I spent a couple of nights in the hospital. I drank a foul liquid that had electrolytes and a laxative. I needed assistance unhooking IVs and with toiletting. And I waited patiently, prodded and poked every couple of hours, for a colonoscopy… living off nothing but IV fluids for two days.

And I guess by the time they were able to launch a remote expedition into my colon, the bleeding had stopped and no problems were found
