I am very comforted by all of the posters that wish me well and the interest in my well being. I think that something is going on that has permitted me to keep muddling along although I can't say what it is exactly or why I am still sucking air when I clearly shouldn't be. Anyway, it's good to be moving around again and well I can't say I like going back to the routine of haggling with politicos, bureaucrats and banksters about contractual crap it's infinitely better then my recent existence.

One neat aspect of my recent internment was that I got to spend some time with a tough as nails Syrian Coloneland got to talk about pan Arabism, Ba'athism and military life from a perspective totally different then mine which is good to have. I also got to talk with a big shot politico guy in the next bed over and found out that he reads HP and listens to Bo Diddly, The Yardbirds and Bevis Frond which is so far out I can't find words to describe it. I also got to learn a bit about the Alawite people since my chief surgeon is one ethnically but religiously is an Orthodox Christian which is odd to say the least. He's married to a Circassian which is an ethnicity you hear about but never encounter. My surgeon was also the fellow that introduced me to "The Pride of Al-Qamishli" moassel and is one of people that helps make it. He even had me help out in making some which was a very cool way to get a bit of tobacco lore under my belt.

I also got to met the cultural legend Sabri Moudallal (not at the hospital) and chap named Shaoubi that plays an amazing instrument called the jza which is new to me.

Oh, i'll have a post about The Pride of Al-Qamishli and how a few of you all can get a bit of it in the near term.

Glad to see you're on the mend.

One thing that I wish I was conscious for was that an Orthodox priest and few of his followers showed up and did some chanting for the Christians in the ward. Apparently Syrian Christian chants are a more rhythmic variant on the Western styles of old and done modes just like we do it.

One thing i've learned is that id that if the pain intense enough you stop hurting for brief moment before you bass out and you just kind of get hit with sensory overload. The sensation is basically what I can only call electric. I also know that hospital food is uniformly banal that you know you have a good surgeon when he invites you into his office to smoke jurak.

Wow, that's awesome!! Doesn't smoking raise your blood pressure for a period, how could he mend you if you have hypertension!!

Glad to see you back Hajo - "They Can Rebuild Him, They Have The Technology!"

Gloster my friend, it's great to see the language of the old homestead in use! Thanks!

ZS, my Surgeon doesn't subscribe to moassel or tobacco in general as anything other then as a thing that makes life better. He smokes all the time while in his office and once my condition got stable and not so dire he invited me in for a smoke now and again. That is what I call the pleasurable way to recover!

As to rebuilding me, well, all the king's horses and all the kind's men can't put old Hajo back together again!
