It’s been 2.5 months since I released “Go On” and “It Feels Familiar”. I’d hoped to have more music done by now, but this year hasn’t been great for me, health wise.
As the title of this post indicates, I am working on two new songs for upcoming release. One of them is a rocker and one of them a friend of mine said he was referring to as “Crashing Pumpkins” because it’s a “sleepy one”. He meant it in a good way.
Without any further ado, let’s get into the meat of it.
Man, 2022 is turning out to be a challenging year. Every time I seem to get some kind of momentum going, something creeps up to knock me back down.
In April, I had the fortune of coming down with what I believe to be salmonella poisoning. This resulted in three trips to the ER, with one of those trips resulting into a readmission to the ICU for being back in DKA. Fortunately, they got on top of things and I was out the next day.
That salmonella poisoning resulted in an h.pylori infection that followed me until June. I had to have a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I was put on antibiotics, went on vacation to Colorado, came home, and released “Go On” and “It Feels Familiar”. Things were looking up.
At the end of July, I followed up with my new GI doc and got the all clear. I then scheduled hernia repair surgery (because a 7-day ICU stay at the start of the year will take care of your out of pocket expenses), recovered from that and caught COVID-19 for the first time.
COVID-19 cleared up, I’m completely recovered from surgery, but I’m exhibiting the symptoms of the h.pylori infection again.
Like I said…2022 is turning out to be a challenging year.
In a world of noise, be sound.
