Although it wasn't explicitly recommended to me by my doctors, after my hospitalization I decided to cut out all caffeine, since I suspect it may have been aggravating the inflammation. Sure enough, after over a week without caffeine I'm feeling remarkably better around the heart, so much so that I'm no longer having to take the anti-inflammatories at all.

One thing I've observed during this is that the choices available at restaurants for non-sugared, non-caffeinated beverages are a little limited. I wonder why, say, the Hansen's line of diet sodas isn't more widely available. Their tangerine-lime and ginger-ale diet sodas are really good, in my opinion.

Anyway, things continue to improve. I've taken the rest of this week off from work, to turn it into an exceptionally long Memorial Day weekend, and am heading down to Southern California on Friday for a couple days to visit my sister and her family. Haven't seen her in person since her daughter's (my niece's) wedding 18 months ago, so I imagine there will be a lot of catching up.

A very good Memorial Day weekend to you all, Gentle Readers!
