My life stopped about a month and a half ago. Everything was normal before it happened. I mean 100% business as usual. I was going about my typical days and then it all came crashing down on me.
I had a lot going on, that’s for sure. I was a month out from announcing my biggest and most exciting project of the year (click that link. It’s a big deal). And my wife and I were a month and a half out from welcoming our firstborn into the world — the kind of event that you’ll never feel prepared for.
And then, on an idle Tuesday evening, on a walk with my dog, I started to feel a bit ill.
The next few days and multiple doctor visits culminated in an emergency surgery to correct an intestinal issue.
After a few days in the hospital, I was home. And after a few days at home, I was back in the hospital with serious complications.
I spent 14 days and 13 nights in the hospital.
