My Zaurus And My Kohjinsha
« on: October 18, 2007, 03:56:10 pm »
About three weeks ago, I managed to fail a treadmill stress test.
Then I had to go and get a heart cath done.
The doctor wouldn't let me go home from the hospital, and a couple days later on October 3rd I had a quadrouple heart bypass done.

Thankfully I have my Zaurus and my Kohjinsha to give me somthing to do, and a place like OESF to read things that interest me.

It's going to take a while to get back where to I was before, but I'm making very good progress.
The doctor said I can drive again in 4-6 weeks.
That's going to seem like forever.

People, please take care of yourself so you don't end up like I did.

Regards,
Doug

My Zaurus has saved my sanity on many occasions (and saved me from having to use Windows machines ).

I wish you a quick, painless recovery.

Glad to hear you're getting better, I know for myself that I don't take good enough care but am trying. By the way, how are things going with your K now that you have had some time on it.

Don't tell the doctor you are with a Zaurus; zaurus reflashing and configuration can be very stressful, specially when drivers don't load properly !! ;-)

Take care !

The cause of my problem (blockage of the coronary arteries) was mostly due to 35 years of smoking plus bad judgement in my diet.

As for my kohjinsha, I love the thing, except for the keyboard, but I'm getting used to poking the keys a little harder.
I haven't tried the hairbrush trick yet.
