I want to thank everyone who wished me improved health. I'm doing a 30+ minute of walk every day and getting plenty of rest.
It took me a couple of weeks to get my task list in order, things having been dropped rather suddenly and the hospital stay fogging my memory somewhat as to what had been done/needed to be done.
But I believe I have my ducks more or less in a line now. So today I started fixing bugs again - getting back into the groove of: making the game fail (following directions from the beta testers), revising the code, and ascertaining that my changes result in the failure no longer occurring. It's sort of like killing off vermin: "and another one's gone, and another one's gone, and another one bites the dust".
As for advice on diet, I can not really follow any of the several well-intentioned recommendations I received. My food intake is the intersection of 3 sets (I think of this as a Venn diagram) where each set is a "thou shalt only put into your mouth ..." as ordained by my urologist, cardiologist, and endocrinologist [that's kidney stone, heart failure, and diabetes respectively]. It's tricky to get right and still have meals that are edible but my wife is a good cook, and very patient with my needs.
Perfection is an elusive goal.
