On Monday I had a single male Rufous Hummingbird at my feeders with the 7 or 8 Anna's I've had all winter. The bird was healthy and robust and did battle with several different Anna's at feeders on both sides of the house. Not seen since.

There may have been more or earlier hummingbird encounters at the house but I was in the hospital from Feb 20 to 28 following 3 major heart attacks on the 20th that technically killed me at 1:23, 1:40 and 2:22 PM, once in the Camas EMT Ambulance (THEY ARE AMAZING), and twice at Salmon Creek Legacy/Kaiser Hospital (MIRACLE WORKERS). Three days of coma (they expected brain damage), but I woke up on Monday with no apparent mental impacts including memory. I was doing Calculus problems and quoting the laws of thermodynamics and reciting Shakespeare later in the day. I lucked out. All caused by an interaction with a new medication.
