I can only compare it to the first day of school. I’m feeling excitment and anticipation mixed with bits of dread and nervousness. Sticking my yap in front of a microphone is something I’ve done for more than a quarter century so this break was really just a blip. Still, you get into a groove with your job and I definitely need to get my groove back.

My liver doctor was very clear that I should come back to work part-time for at least the first week. However, there is no such thing as part-time when you host a radio show. My staunchest supporter at 1039 fm (and the one who had to pick up my slack when I was off!) Leigh Robert has suggested that I voice-track (pre-record) my last hour to give me a bit of a break. I’ll do that this week, anyway. I’m feeling good and strong. And I feel it won’t be long before I’m back in fine fighting form. I’m ready coach – put me in!
