Finally Up and Corresponding

     Howdy, everybody.
     This is the first time I've had to post to this blog — the last couple of weeks, since my release from the hospital, have been a whirlwind of follow-up doctors' appointments, drug regimens, meal regimens, catching up on crucial bill-paying, and so on. But now I'm starting to have some breathing room — and enough energy to spend some time each day in front of the computer.
     In the next day or so, I'll be posting a lengthy account of my heart attack, surgery, and recovery on my LJ, at http://aaron-allston.livejournal.com/. I won't repeat it in full here. Suffice it to say that I had a heart attack, I had quadruple bypass surgery, I almost died two or three times, and I've been given a second chance.
     I intend to squander that second chance writing fun things for people to read and thanking those of you who venture within earshot. Your posts, cards, and Donation Fund contributions have meant a lot to my morale and have sometimes left me slack-jawed. They have meant a lot to me, guys — I can't thank you enough.
     My recovery has been pretty rapid, and those of you who are convention-goers can look forward to (or dread) seeing me in person at San Diego Comic-Con and Dragon*Con this year. Stop by any of my signings or panels and give me the opportunity to thank you in person.
     More soon...

—Aaron

Glad to hear you're back in action!
Thanks! It's definitely good to be back.

I'm really glad you're getting better. I hope you continue to do so.

I really wish I could be at one of your signings or panels, but being as I live in the UK that's slightly out of my way ;) Have a great time at them, though...
Well, with luck and planning, perhaps I'll be able to make a UK event some day. I'm hoping, anyway...
Glad you are doing well.
Thanks!
I think the blood donation arrangement will work virtually forever. (Even if not, I'm happy to see anyone donate blood for any purpose not related to vampires.)

The details for my account are in the message at community.livejournal.com/allston_info/1097.html. I hope to reorganize the Info site in a few days to make all that information easy to find.

Great to hear from you, and looking forward to seeing you at JadeCon. Are you going to make SDCC? I know that, traditionally, that's a tricky one for you.
I'm so relieved you're feeling better! My husband and I came to see you at your signing at the Lee's Summit, Missouri Borders and were horrified to find out all the trauma you went through within a few days. I hope your recovery keeps moving forward. We're definitely pulling for you!
Thanks for the kind words. I hope my feeling bad wasn't too evident at that signing and that you had a good time.

Glad to hear you're feeling better =)

Mr. Allston:
I also had the pleasure of meeting you at the Lee's Summit signing, and I'm very relieved to hear that you're recovering well. I admire your dedication in getting back into writing as soon as you possibly could, and I wish you all the best as you continue to get well.

May the Force be with you!
aaron allston, allston
