Complications

While the work on the Red Egg was being completed, other developments were also on the rise.

While loading stones into the truck early September, I had felt a tightness in my chest when lifting the heavier stones; this felt like what I had heard was called exercise induced angina.

In mid-September, I had walked a two mile flat trail in Denali Park, and felt intense chest constriction the whole time.  I felt lucky to have made it back to the truck.

Shortly after the walk in Denali, I dreamed of a landslide that was almost entirely blocking a large river.

Immediate consultation and testing with the cardiologist in Fairbanks was inconclusive, and I was put on nitroglycerin.
