By way of getting started, and while avoiding the main point of this blog -- which is to regale the reader with things surgical -- let me just say that I've started walking again. For exercise. I ride a bike, mainly, and love it. But you have to pay attention while biking. Earphones are a major no-no. Walking allows me to carry along my iPod, and listen to music. Really, there's nothing more exhilarating than walking to nicely timed music, in the sun. So after a ride, I take a walk. Toss the zoloft. This really works.
