Head's Up-Very short hiatus (Ideally)

by BlueDragon
I'm sorry to write this. I know if I pushed myself, I could get the timeline ready for Friday, but my partner's been having gallbladder issues for years, with the newest spell hitting him on his birthday back on Feb. 17, 2021. Then, the week of February 21, he had upset stomache, but was able to keep things down. By Monday, he was sick vomitting anything he ate. We thought he had the flu or food poisoning, because I don't eat meat or animal products, and the only difference in our diet was eggs and chicken that week: I was not sick, so we ruled out the flu and thought it was food related illness. 

I tried the BRATs diet, but he kept getting sick, and he kept putting off going to the Urgent Care because we don't have health insurance (he's been getting interviews, but one went bad because the gallbladder attack was of course during his second interview test). By Friday I set the appointment for him and made him go to the urgent care.

Long and the short, last Friday/Saturday morning we were at the Urgent Care all night until 8pm or so, and they sent us to the ER. He had a blockage which lead to his gallbladder being removed Monday. I brought him home yesterday (against my better judgement), but this morning at 7:30 he fell unconscious and cut his chin open, and I have been at the ER literally since 8:00a (I had to rush the dogs out and let the ambulence take him ahead of my coming).

So while all the characters are colored, and the timeline scripted out, I am too goddamn exhausted to work on anything today. I am sorry, but I am just so drained.

This year...last year...everyone I know is just falling apart. It's getting really fucking hard to keep positive. It's kind of a lot...I have up until this point been able to keep up, but everytime I start to catch up some major catastrophe happens. I have to focus on caring for him at the moment. I know you will all understand, but I wanted to send this message because I know there are comments I haven't been able to keep up with, and I feel bad for not being able to respond.

I don't think this will be a long hiatus. I am just going between the hospital and coming home for our dogs who can't be locked up on all day. I am finding it hard to squeeze in working (though I'd been juggling it pretty well up until today). Today was scary. I don't want to share the details, but I have no one to talk to, so I'm writing this blog. I mean, I could call my mom, but she's dealing with caring for Dad, and I don't want to stress her more.

I project to be able to post something next Friday. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and sorry for this long drawn out blog. I would like to think of myself as a private person, but I guess not. This year has taken a toll on that.

Thank you, and take care.

Ah hell, man. That's really rough.

Take care.

Thanks. Brad's now been home since Saturday...and he's actually moving around. Today he's been getting back to work at the computer, so while he still has a bit of pain, he's at least getting better.

They ended up giving him a stint and going back in to stop the internal bleeding. So...he'll have to go back in to have it removed, but at least he's healing.

Thank you so much! He seems to be in the clear, so posts will resume tomorrow as scheduled :)

We're not just your fans, we're your long distance friends who care about you. It's kind of like we're all pen-pals here, isn't it? Please don't exhaust yourself. We don't want you getting sick too.

Thanks, man. I appreciate that. Things are looking better for him. He's moving around, and fortunately he qualified for OHP, so we won't have to go into thank God for small favors.

Thank you so much! He's getting there. He's not passing out on the floor o_O That of the most awful experiences ever.

He's now been home since Saturday, and has been getting better. He's actually walking around the apartment now, and he's doing okay eating a normal diet.

A WHOOPEE!!! to Brad! I'm so glad you're getting better!
