I didn't know about the DD, Jessica--it's probably the most well deserved Daily Deviation I've read...ever. Nope, not sucking up--just saying what I feel at the moment. I can see this happening in my minds eye as I've had surgery of this type many times myself as several of my nieces and nephews were doctors in their youth (one turned out to be a doctor in adult life but I don't hold that against him).
Isn't it strange how a appendix can regenerate so many times? Well done, my friend!
Aww...how kind you are, John! I'm glad you liked it. I knew I had to write it...at least for posterity's sake. It will continue as a live memory, in black and white as long as anyone wants to read it. And yes, you are correct. the regenerative properties are so very very strange, lol.
So. I'm sure you noticed I've been absent. I had an "incident" last Thursday that left me in the hospital for five days. Doctors are assholes with God complexes. And I had to wait to see my personal physician to be listened to and had the correct tests run. I have shingles in my ear, which was diagnosed several days before my major malfunction. It has invaded my brain and is causing some...significant problems. I walk and talk like a stroke patient, John. I have extreme photosensitivity in my right eye and so i have...seizure like (may be in reality or a Bell's Palsay effect) condition when bright lights hit my eye. I can't drive! Ugh. I am so...frustrated. An MRI of my c-spine shows two significant problems in my C2 and C3 vertebrate. I have to see a neurosurgeon for correction, which will be a freakin' scary ass surgery. My dA friends who are also facebook friends know, but a few here might be wondering and I don't want y'all to worry too much.
Anyhoo...it is what it is for now. But I am much improved from the original onset of symptoms, which was super scary as I could barely walk or make the correct words come out of my mouth. it is so odd to see the right ones in your brain, and not be able to get them out of your mouth!! Grr.
Good! And yeah. Two surgeries. It isn't a stupid question. I was in a bit of a crisis for a bit--put up a journal even. But I deleted it later. I just--didn't want to remember that dark place. She was sick at the end of May last year.
