    After a harrowing hospitalization last month, I have a lot to process. Flirting with death isn’t something that you just forget after a while. In my latest column, I talked briefly about my hospitalization, what life has been like after the fact, and how sometimes being here, being in this present moment, is simply enough. You can read it here.

    I for one am glad you, “lived to tell the tale,” as they say. You look good too I might add. Those boots! Love your style.

    Unless you’ve gone through something like that I don’t think you can really grasp the gravity of it. My code blue moment, as I refer to it, feels like just yesterday even though it was 7 years ago already. Maybe some day you can share the nitty gritty with us. If not that’s okay too. Taking it day by day sounds like a good plan. Bet those two pups are glad to have you home too.
