Yes, I know I went poof. I’m sorry. I do have a good reason.

March 17th, I had 2 seizures back to back and never came out of them. I went into acute respiratory failure at the hospital and they put me on a ventilator, which I apparently didn’t want to work with, so they put me into a medically induced coma.

I woke up April 6th in the ICU of my local hospital. They took the ventilator out and I slowly begin to go from baby food/applesauce and ice chips, back to solid food. I was moved to my own room and the real therapy began.

My left arm ended up underneath me somehow, either when the hospital moved me around to keep me from getting bed sores OR when I had my seizures at home (No blame, it’s not a permanent injury) but it’s currently not able to be fully stretched out at the elbow. I am however, able to take a shower, eat and get dressed unassisted.

The other issue? Being bedridden for a month, pissed off my heart and legs. My legs forgot how to hold me up steadily and how to walk. So while at the hospital they taught me to use a walker which I came home with. Here at home, I’m able to walk without the walker and I’m moving around on my own.

But what about my heart? Well, it’s not used to me moving, so my blood pressure is fluctuating. I’m taking blood pressure meds to control it, which hopefully I will not be on for long as my heart adjusts to me being active again.

The members area is now being taken care of again, and I am going to attempt to still do small updates. We’ll see how it goes, But now you know why I’ve been quiet. Thank you for your patience.
