Back in my home gym today. Back in my house too. Life has been crazy cleaning up from this hurricane and dealing with insurance stuff.

I have my heart surgery scheduled for this Friday now. After it, I am not allowed to lift for a week. I hope it doesn't set me back too bad, I've been making nice gains lately.

Thanks y'all. I gotta fit in one more leg day tmrw before this thing! I don't want to go 2 weeks without hitting legs.

And don't feel bad for me, my girlfriend is in town and the ladies are taking good care of me. We rented some kind of sex dungeon tonight, it's connected to this courtyard in the french quarter with a clothing optional pool and hot tub.

So if the surgery kills me, rest easy knowing I had a good life fellas. ✌

What I had done is called a Cardiac Ablation (https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/cardiac-ablation/about/pac-20384993).

It's a relatively low risk procedure that corrects abnormal heart rythms, a-flutter and a-fib in my case.

Docs are telling me that I have to wait 1 week to work out again, and only do light weight the second week.

I should be able to drink caffeine again in moderation, and my heart failure should progress healing faster now also. I'm having another echocardiagram done in December, so I should be able to see progress then.
