Well, if you are wondering why I haven’t posted in a while, this is why.
I apologize to anyone whose conversation with me got cut short at the Paradise Comicon on Sunday, because of me running to the bathroom to puke, but I have a good excuse. Turns out I had a pretty good liver infection.
Starting on Sunday, June 9th I had pains in my abdomine. After a visit to my family doctor, a visit to the Burlington Hospital’s Emergency, and another visit to The Toronto Western Hospital’s Emergency, I somehow was sent home without a single thing done to me (this took up 4 days of pain). Things started to feel better by Friday, which was convenient, because Saturday was moving day. I continued to move our stuff from our town house in Burlington, to our new house in Carlisle, with the help of great family and friends. (We love our new place in the country. The kids have lots of room to play and to get into trouble now!). On Saturday night it was back to excrutiating pain. On Wednesday I had an appointment with my liver doctor (my liver isn’t pulling it’s weight lately, and I don’t even drink!), and by Wednesday afternoon I was checked into Toronto Western Hospital again, where they proceeded to pump me full of antibiotics. A week later I was allowed to go home to my new house that I had hardly seen. (Oh, did I mention that my kids got the chicken pox?) My poor, poor, beautiful wife, left to unpack a house, worry about me, and take care of two kids with chicken pox. She is an amazing woman. On the bright side, I was able to get 5 pages of the Possum #3 roughed out, plus get 2 weeks worth of paying work done, while I was on my vacation at the hospital. Say all you want about computers and fancy tablets, but there are benefits to pencil and paper. There isn’t much to do in the Hospital, so you might as well make use of the time.
Well, I’m exhausted, but home now, and still popping antibiotics. Hopefully everything will be back to normal (whatever normal was) and I’ll return to my usual skin colour in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures.
Hopefully I’ll have some convention pics up soon.
