Happy New Year. As you may have noticed, my byline hasn’t been up on the site for a few days. That’s because the holidays weren’t exactly my most jolly.

Happy New Year. As you may have noticed, my byline hasn’t been up on the site for a few days. That’s because the holidays weren’t exactly my most jolly.

I had a heart attack on Dec. 28. I was able to walk into the hospital for treatment that night and have been recovering here ever since. With the support of my family and my team, I am on the road to a full recovery. I am going to be OK.

Katie and Liz and the rest of the team will be posting updates on my progress on the site. I’ll be back and writing again as soon as possible.

Now living a healthier life isn’t just one of my New Year’s resolutions, it’s doctor’s orders. Friends and family have purged my apartment of smokes, scotch and all my favorite fatty foods — I am even going to be drinking decaf. I won’t be refashioning my avatar’s stogie with a celery stick, but I will be taking better care of my health.

I hope you do, too.

Best wishes,
Om

  6. Man, take it easy. I read your blog every day, and I hope you make a full recovery. You can scale down from GigaOm to MegaOm and still be the best blog out there.

  10. Om…

    Glad to hear you are okay. I was surprised to find out that I had high blood pressure this past year and have jumped into a exercise and diet program to combat it.

    Take your time recovering. Your family and friends are the most important things in the world. I’ll be praying for a swift recovery.
