In the days following a routine Flu vaccination I developed a rare autoimmune blood disorder and wound up hospitalized and in and out of various medical facilities for various procedures to try and stabilize my condition. Upon returning home I went in to my studio and began recording this piece as a way to express my whirlwind of emotions and keep my mind occupied in a constructive way. I wrote and recorded this over the course of the two weeks that followed. I created it as possibly the last thing I would ever make. It is now finished, the day before my 36th birthday.

I am currently uploading my final master while hooked up to an IV platelet infusion. There is no end in sight to this nightmare, but I remain positive that I will overcome.

Please set aside 19 minutes to listen to this piece in its entirety for the full effect at a healthy volume level, and enjoy your ride on the inflammation superhighway.

It is too easy to forget that life is very fragile and everything can change in an instant. Try and enjoy the good moments while they happen.

Much love to you all,

-Jon Bafus
