Well, my cardiologist had a new theory about my memory experience which I thought I should pass along. It seems that one of my heart valves is very constricted and is having a hard time squirting enough blood through the small opening. This, coupled with a bit of strenuous exercise, may have robbed my brain of its fair share of blood. When that happened, part of the brain took a nap. Luckily, it wasn’t the part needed to get home.
I’m sending this update because my last post gave the impression that my memory loss was caused by overheating and over-exertion. While these two are still considered the precursors of transient amnesia, it seems to be a little more complicated in my case. I don’t want to leave the impression that my velomobile had much, if anything, to do with the outcome.
Anyway, I’ll need to get something done about my heart very soon, then a long recovery after that, so I won’t be posting anything for quite some time. I do have another blog going about building a wooden boat and will continue to work on it. If any of you are into that sort of thing, come on over for a visit. You can start it at the beginning here and use the arrows at the bottom of the posts to go through in chronological order.
Meanwhile, I’ll be following my fellow velonauts with great interest as they blog about their adventures and be content to live vicariously through them for a bit. Thanks in advance for sharing!
I wish you all a very full and happy summer.
