Thank you!

Big thanks to everyone who has sent me private messages after listening to Episode 008: Diabetes & Surgery to see how Rob is doing. Well, Rob has returned to work, he’s doing extremely well and for the first time in 12 years, he’s breathing normally! Yeah!


Once Rob got the bandage off his nose, we went out for dinner to celebrate.

ALSO thanks so much for the sincere well-wishes you’ve all given me as I head back to school. It’s pretty intense (this term I’m working on chemistry and statistics!) so don’t be alarmed I go a bit off-schedule with this podcast as I adjust to being a student; I have the new joy of lots of homework and I don’t want to jeopardize the quality of this production.
