So did you miss me?

Yeah, I know...

Anyways, I am back after spending 10 fun filled days in two different ICU units for a gastrointestinal arterial hemorrhage (the first couldn't deal with the problem and sent me to a bigger hospital).

While there I was pumped full of over 30 units of assorted blood products, enjoyed 6 different endoscopic procedures (the last of which perforated my intestines sending me into septic shock causing my kidneys to temporarily say "Screw this shit!  We quit!" because they were already pissed off about all of the CT scan contrast that had been pumped into me) and lastly got the pleasure of a angioplastic embolization of a few arteries in my small intestines.

So, in other words, the whole thing pretty much sucked huge, pustulant filled ass. (and that most especially includes having to endure the GI doctor gleefully showing my minions freaking full color videos of my innards, taken from from her endoscope which I think was invented by Torquemada.

(Trust me...  you don't ever want one of these fed down your throat and threaded through the twists & turns of your intestines!)

On the bright side, the minions dealt with everything well (and probably saved my life by calling 911 within seconds of me doing a face plant in the middle of the kitchen floor... so there will be NO living with their insufferable asses from here on out), I found out that I have a LOT of good people as friends (including a couple of near fist fights on who got to stay with the minions and make the 90 minute drive to the hospital so the kids could gloat in person) and I met a couple of cute nurses and a seriously hot GI doctor who I'll be meeting for dinner and drinks as soon as I am no longer her patient (I think is only fair that, after she invaded almost every part of my body, I should return the favor!  LOL.)

Pleased you're better. 

It's never good to have a condition one can barely spell or one that requires anything done to you w stuff ending in 'scope'.

The last time you went AWOL for nearly two months. Nobody seemed to be concerned so, I posted this:

One Sentence Question for a Sunday morning: Where is Safe Bet's Amy?

Posted by Ron Powell on October 23, 2016 at 8:00am

"...Despite what anyone may think of Amy and her perspective, opinions, and mode of  expression, she's still a human being who happens to be one of us.

She's an integral member of this community and I am concerned about about her health,  safety, and well being.

I think we all should be so concerned. But,  that's just my opinion...."

I've been wondering, but reluctant to inquire....

Glad you're well....And still with us...

Things like this generally don't happen without some kind of warning...

You should pay closer attention to the signs and signals your body gives you...

Not mansplainin', just sayin'.....

You trying to tell us a blood vessel burst/leaked in your stomach or intestine? Glad they got to you fast. I lost a grandfather to one of those. 

Actually, yes, I wondered where the Hell you were. 

When we don’t know each other in real life, it’s easy to disappear. Do you know anyone here offline?

Anyway, watch yourself. Have an easy recovery.

I "liked" this only because you're back in the fold, Amy, not because you were so ill. Slainte.

I'm very glad you survived and are healing!
