After a brief incarceration at Mt. Sinai Hospital, I'm at home recovering from a heart "hiccup". Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and messages.

And contrary to some rumors in the newsroom --- I did not forget to set my heart valve to daylight savings time.

The good news is my mechanical heart valve and my heart are just fine. The bad news --- involves blood clots, new medicines, and a ban on barbecue. I'll share indepth about my adventures later.

I hope to resume blogging on Friday (when my drug-induced fog should begin lifting).
