Our steps are numbered, so make each one count.
I am a fairly typical guy - family man, business owner, the usual. Then, out of the blue, I found myself in Intensive Care, not knowing what was going on, what was wrong with me, or even if I'd see my wife and daughter ever again. It was hands down the scariest week of my life. My fears were compounded by the fact that nobody seemed to know WHY I was there.
I mean, they knew what was wrong, but not WHY it was wrong. They did a phenomenal job of treating the symptoms, but never even approached the root cause. (Two years, several specialists and dozens of tests later, the mystery remains. But then, so do I.) In the weeks that followed, I didn't have the strength to stand, let alone walk. I started this blog as a personal reminder that I AM still here, and that has to count for something.
I am a founding partner of Tin Cans Marketing, a full-service international marketing agency specializing in marketing strategy, communication management, public relations and Internet development. But that's just my job.
I'm a husband, father, friend and co-worker. I am active in our local community theater. I get involved in other civic causes as the need arises or, more likely, when one of my friends asks me to. I've coached little league, taught Sunday School, driven kids to the away games, carried pizzas for the team parties. Typical dad and neighbor stuff.
Oh, and there's that whole "almost died" thing that started me writing this blog.
