Chris, THANK YOU so much for keeping people updated; it was hard enough just to make a single post to Facebook, let alone all the other fora that I normally contribute to.
I AM BACK HOME!!! Very tired and way behind on everything, but my own bed feels SO GOOD. Feeling quite well, despite being assimilated by the Borg... though I never got one of those cool laser-eye attachments, just a lot of tubes hanging out everywhere. Going to take me a while to "adapt to my needs," as things like pants don't fit properly now. Catch some of these sutures when you sit down and you really find what pain means. But I will overcome.
Gopi has been an enormous help to me during this time, taking care of things at home and sitting with me in the hospital for hours. Please thank him for being such a loyal and dedicated friend--he is one of a kind.
And thanks to all those who sent their energy and love to protect me and assist my getting through this. It was essential to my recovery and it feels wonderful to have so many people caring about me. In all honesty, I never knew... there are usually only a few people I interact with on the fora, but the hundreds that have come to my aid is truly spiritually inspiring; it has made a major improvement to my life and you'll see that thanks come in future writings and videos. Love and light to all!
