I am not dead, but close enough

I'm not straight on all that happened, in what order, but I startred having seizures about a week ago(?). I collapsed, went to hospital. My appendix had already burst hours before arrival. Days of hospital-things follow, kind of like a montaugue. At the moment, everything I've been working on is completely on hold, and it's all just a matter of getting back to square 1. It's tiring just to walk across a room.

So, ... that's what happened to me.

  2. Glad you're still alive. Get well soon and don't worry about RPG stuff - hearing about what's happened to you puts edition wars and project deadlines into perspective.

  3. Wow, Simon is right, you are very lucky to be alive. Now you have to create a bucket list and ride a giraffe and all that cliche crap now that you've been given a second chance.

  8. Damn. Sorry to hear that.

    A lot of people don't know, but a ruptured appendix is a really bad thing. I mean it never sounds good, but it is surprisingly dangerous. Coupled with the seizure activity is nothing to take lightly.

    Get better soon!

  9. Really glad to hear you are alright! My appendix almost burst in 2001, had to be rushed to the hospital. That was pretty painful, so I can imagine what you are going through. Get well soon!
