And the run of medical issues for my family continues. This time its not my dad though (he's doing much better), its me. Last week I got sick and it just kept getting worse and worse. Couldnt seem to shake it. Then I developed what I thought was the world's most painful hemorrhoid over the weekend. Normally those things are manageable and will self drain or reabsorb into the body (Ive had these before) but it didnt and the pain was staggering (this thing was right next to my butt hole mind you). Four days of little sleep, constant pain and feeling sicker and sicker drove me to seek medical help.
Turns out I was growing a softball sized abscess in my body, a pouch of puss that can lead to blood poisoning in sever cases and with me being a diabetic my case would be severe. Turned out surgery was required to beat this monster as I write this I still have an open wound for the purpose of drainage. The surgery went very well and I thought I would be an outpatient. But my blood sugars skyrocketed due to the level of infection in my body and while they are coming down by degrees the process of trying to get me level again has been going on for a week and Im still here. Ive given up on anticipating when I might get out and asked my wife to bring my laptop so I could let everyone know whats going on and where Ive been.
So my apologies to everyone waiting on work from my as well as to me friends in the
as this prevented me from completing this past month's challenge. I wont be able to work on anything while here as my work computer is a big Imac and not suitable to bring to the hospital. I know its trivial compared to my health but not being able to draw for a couple of weeks is driving me utterly insane. I just keep thinking about how much work I have to do when I get him. Im bored and frustrated and depressed and angry all at the same time but trying to stay positive as best I can but Im insanely eager to be home. Now that Ive got my laptop at least I'll try to keep you all updated. Perhaps tomorrow will be the day Im cleared to leave. I know they are keeping me here for my health and its the right thing to do but I desperately want to leave.
