BigGeek Returns

I am fretting as BigGeek returns to work today. Only for a few hours. He will be driving alone for the first time after his lil adventure and it’s very hard to refrain myself from calling him every 5 minutes. But baby him I shall not. He still has to undergo Cardiac Rehab before he resumes his regular routine. For a man who is used to going at 60mph with his work and school he has been grinding to a near halt the past couple of weeks. This bothers him. He was supposed to go to China later this month for a school trip and he obviously cannot go now (he tried convincing the doctor yesterday, but thank god the doctor was adamant). This bothers him. And I feel his pain. But this too shall pass.

On a related note, I just read Cheney’s history of heart troubles. First heart attack at 37, two more and a quadruple bypass before he turned fifty, a stent procedure later. I don’t know if he has a pacemaker. None of this has slowed him down. I sent the link to BigGeek - he has such tremendous admiration for Cheney already.

Goodness! I just heard (read) about BigGeek.

You guys be careful, huh? I'm glad he's fine.

It would surely be frustrating for BG to be slowed down. But I am sure there would be many other opportunities like this in the future. So until he undergoes Cadiac Rehab and is completely fit - you take care of BG and yourself too :)

i love lucy: i hope so..

kodi's mom: that's what I tell him.. he is in an exec program so they don't have semesteres, they have terms which are shorter than semesters. He is not planning to skip any.

sue: thanks

mnamma: it is..poor guy.

I can imagine how he feels. And how you feel for him. It's not a fun situation but thank heavens for him being well now and knowing he will soon get back to normal after rehab. And yes like Cheney this will only make a person like BG (from how you describe his personality) stronger and more determined to keep doing what he is doing and more....
Wishing you both lot of strength, mental and physical...

It's hard, especially when it goes against his nature to take it easy. But hopefully it's only till he gets fully fit once more. Good luck!

Gauri said...

I can well imagine how tough it must be for him - especially since he is used to going at life at full speed. As also your concerns.

Hoping and praying that he is back to 100% fitness soon.

Best wishes to both of you.

Hugs

Hope Big Geek went okay. I do like the fond nickname!

Enjoyed your site. Will be back when I have some time to spare but it's spring here and the kids are on holidays, so it's time to kick back a bit!

Tell Big Geek to take it easy ....

I can understand how Big Geek feels abt not going to China. There are many more better chances lined up for him for sure. He must give first priority to his health. You too take care of yourself and Chip.

Squiggles Mom said...

It's god to see you being so strong for him. Atta girl. All the best.

Usha said...

I think he just got a warning to slow down a bit so please advise him to go back to his usual rhythm in a progressive manner.
My best wishes are with both of you. it is all going to be just fine.

I am late here and catching up on the last 10 or so posts. Was shocked to read about Big Geek. Still feel the shivers. Glad he is recovering and wishing him a super speedy one. He seems to be an incredible man, and is lucky to have you his soul mate. You seem to be a wonderful and strong person to handle all this and chip with so much maturity. Best wishes. Take care.
