Dear Luggers,

Thank you very much for the many touching sympathies sent on- and 
offlist while I was hospitalized, and a special thanks to Nathan who 
was so kind to transmit my message.

Two weeks ago, I noticed a certain shortness of breath while doing 
bicycle training. Had to give up at hills where I usually climb up 
without sweating. As I have had a thrombosis a year ago, my wife, a 
nurse, was rather unsettled about that and fortunately sent me to the 
doc, which diagnosed several pulmonary embolisms and immediately 
passed me over to the next hospital, where I stayed until today.

Will presumably need to take coagulating (blood-thinning) meds for 
the rest of my life. Nothing to complain about, considering the fact 
that the biggest clump had a size that might easily send one to the 
happy hunting ground: It's the grey shadow 
in the red mark. The black areas are the lunge's inside. Shot with 
off-topic gear, a Philips computer tomograph. The DOF is very narrow 
but the bokeh looks rather dark :-)

I have been commanded to go for long, slow walks. You can bet I'll 
take a camera with me, and post the results here.

Thanks again to all, and I wish a pleasant photokina time for all who 
go there. Looks like the M8 will be the show stealer...
