For the first time in my career — at least as far as I can remember — I had to call in sick for a performance. It takes a lot for me to do that. But … if a person can’t walk without throwing up, and that walking looks like a drunk walk, it’s probably best to stay home. And stay home I did. Last night was one of the worst nights in my life.

I called a good friend and wonderful musician to line him up so our personnel manager didn’t have to stress too much. I hate stressing people out. I hope things went okay … I’m sure they did, what with Mike playing!

Today I’m still suffering from vertigo and I’m still not well, but at least I can walk a few steps and back.

Now it’s back to bed with me. Any blog posts you see here were scheduled earlier (I can’t remember if I scheduled some and I can’t take the time to check … I have to close this computer before it makes me ill; the screen make my stomach feel yucky, believe it or not.)


  1. Get well – and I’m serious about the roses (I’ve already cleared it with my spousal unit – you might want to run it by Dan though :).

  2. Dan is fine … we have these trust things goin’ on! 🙂

    Seriously, he really is but I DID ask him!

    I’m on meds and feeling better, but my head is still in a jar that is smaller than my head, if you know what I mean.

    More later …
