Greg, How Are You?

Happy Birthday

by on May.09, 2012, under The Days


Day Zero, the babes are in.

Around 11am they defrosted my new friends and infused them through a large line at my neck.  “Uneventful” is always good news in the medical lexicon.  There was some expected high blood pressure that gradually receded.  It took a while to sleep off the 50mg of dope but now I’m pretty clear and reasonably comfortable.  I had an egg and some applesauce, enough to earn applause from my nurse.

So I’ve survived battle with a juggernaut of nausea, zen’d my way through many hours of keeping calm and collected, felt the love and support of my ever ready parents and found tremendous appreciation for good nursing.

Thanks for the well wishes, prayers and humor out there.

    I’m very relieved to hear that it’s all going so well, Greg. As well as can be expected given the shadows of predators and so on. You inspire me to face real hardship.

    Once again sending you all the best thoughts and energy and beauty that I can muster my friend.

    “Close your eyes
    Touch my skin
    Lay back and let go
    Breathe me in
    Hear this moment
    Born again

    Every sunrise
    Every song
    Every silence you can lie to
    I’m there with you, baby

    It’s okay you’re not alone
    Light you up and keep you safe
    I’m everywhere you are
    Everywhere you are”

    From track 26 of “Gregs Deep Down Dance Set”
