“Hey, yes, it’s me. am here. I am up and moving around, not as fast as I’d like to be, but I am okay. I’m not dead. So, here’s what happened. I had pneumonia and I was septic. Pneumonia in both lungs. Which meant there was fluid and there was all kinds of stuff going on.

Yes, I came very, very close to leaving the earth. Good news, I didn’t. Thank you for all of your good wishes, all of the wonderful things that people have been saying. Even people who are not like huge fans of mine have actually said nice thing about me. We all know that’s going to change when I get back, but for right now, it’s brilliant!

Ladies, I cannot wait to see y’all. This has been interesting and I’ll tell you about it when we’re all at the table. To everybody, see you soon.”
