Can't Blog? Then Vlog!

Greetings from Vicodin Land!


I struggle to type this post using only one hand (and a few fingers), embracing the potency of pain-killers that keep the hurt away, but make Mike a bit more goofier than usual. The good news: I'm getting better every day! The bad news: I am still a ways away from being able to write blog posts.

Instead of writing, I have been shooting video and posting vlogs on my video site, livelife365.com. It is much easier than doing this (he says, as his fingers continue to hit the wrong keys!), and a lot less painful and time consuming.

So, in the meantime, please enjoy these v (ideo) log posts:

Mike Post-Surgery 24-48 Hours
Mike Post-Surgery: Red Sox Recap

Mike Post-Surgery (Day Three)
Mike Post-Surgery (Day Four): Never Give Up

Mike Post-Surgery (Day Five): Vote For Change
Mike Post-Surgery (Day Six): Updates and Financial Talk



I would also like to thank all of you who left such kind comments and good wishes during this past week--it means a lot!

Hope to be back blogging very soon. Until then, please enjoy my videos at livelife365.com, and keep living your life every day, every way.

Until next time...

peace,

Mike

Glad your surgery went well. Hope your on the mend. I just finished watching your Red Sox recap video. I'm pretty bummed about the loss, but we'll get them next yr., right? Take care of yourself. I'll watch some of your other videos as soon as I get a chance. Bye for now.

We watched the Red Sox video! Mom wasn't on painkillers, but she was fighting to stay away for that game, too! When she ever saw Papi running the bases.... Woo Hoo! Alas, we ultimately got knocked out. There's always next year!

P.S. Mom's from a Boston suburb! =)

Gandalf and Grayson said...

no - not stay away... stay awake for that game.

Follow your own eating well philosophy and have extra calcium. It all worked for me. Get well soon.

Ms. O. D. said...

Mike, it's interesting to see you and the effects of vicodin... by day3 you seem much better :)

want to pluck out something you said in one of the videos, out from its context:

"I got alotta drugs in me then I saw coco crisp... fight off... bang a single."

thought that this was said thru the glaze of vicodin... didnt realize that Coco is an actual name of a REAL baseball player :P (sorry about the Sox)

I hope you feel better and heal fast!

Guitar Monster said...

Poor mike, get well soon and keep on eating them avocados, fibers and almonds you'll be back in no time.
