I have been gigging 32, years, on and off, and like yourself can't remember i gig i have had booked and not completed!,
I did have a resident job were i was an hour late, due to be getting stuck on a broken down underground in London, missed my train back to chesterfield and had to get the next train, went straight from the train station to the gig, i had phoned ahead and my backup music was already playing (a cd ) and arrived with two tracks left to play.
I always worried over wedding gigs, when a lot are booked so far in advance, health, vehicles, etc
But 41'years must be some kind of record, and i take my hat off to you sir, and hope your well soon, i am sure there are not many professions that work like ours...

Crazy to think I ran a marathon last October and up to May last year I was running over 100 miles per month for several years. Weird how things can turn around.

Been to the doctors today and it turns out to be a really nasty water infection. Had to do a sample and it almost lit up like disco lights lol. Very, very toxic.
On antibiotics for a week and hopefully should be getting back to normality (whatever that is). Although, I'm still worn out. This Saturday's gig is covered. I shall just rest up while I've got the chance.

The Doctor is new to my surgery, hence, getting an appointment fairly quickly. She was very thorough looking at various issues, etc. A Polish friend of mine has always said when she has medical problems she travels back to Poland because their Health Service is years ahead of the rubbish British NHS. Normally appointments are around 10 minutes, my appointment with her was over 50 minutes and addressed many issues. She is now top of my list for any future appointments lol.

At Hospital last Friday I went under the knife for an hour to have a large mole removed. I now have 9 stitches in my back and not allowed any heavy lifting, stretching or bending. On top of which the doctor has had to put me on a second course of antibiotics for the water infection.
Just shoot me now!
That's the DJing on hold yet again!

a month out after the diabetes diagnoses
two weeks from first surgery
two weeks from 2nd surgery
and now a torn bicep tendon in the shoulder joint, to go along with some nerve damage and other fun things. 3 years recovery/healing time and not supposed to lift over 25lbs (11.3 kilos) until orthopedic surgeon says otherwise.
we fight the good fight to keep doing what we do...but it does take a toll doesn't it?

I even managed to do a 5 mile slow jog last night. Been itching to get out for a run (jog). Taking it slowly and feeling loads better.

I cycled today for the first time in ages, and it was exhausting!
