NaSoAlMo Eve

October 31, 2012

Besides being Halloween (I saw adults dressed as a nun, a hippy, a devil and a referee), it's National Solo Album Month (NaSoAlMo) Eve. Tomorrow begins my month-long attempt to write and record a solo album of at least 29:09 minutes. I really don't have any ideas, so I'll just jump in tomorrow and see what happens.

Mr. Orion and his kidney disease are still with me. I had no idea he could hang on this long. I still take him to the vet three times a week for fluids.

As for me, I spent Monday night in the emergency room with a pain in my torso. I've heard that heart attacks can take many forms and some people have several without even realizing it. The pain went on for an hour before I decided to call an ambulance. After lying on an emergency room gurney for 6 hours watching tv shows like Family Guy and Repo Games, they ruled out a heart attack, said everything looked picture perfect with my heart and sent me home. I have an appointment with my regular doctor next week to start figuring out what's wrong with me. I've had this pain 2 times before, but it only lasted about 15 minutes both times. This time it lasted 1.5 hours.

Wish me NaSoAlMo luck!
