The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

Dear Syd and all the Arkians at sea or on land,

I have been away for a long time, my main occupation being health management
of self. This winter I spent about two months in hospital and rehab facility, fighting
and recovering from aspirational pneumonia and something called Miller-Fisher
Syndrome. Awful stuff. It truly was nightmarish, but I'm happy to say that things
are on the upswing. OH, I forgot to mention that the doctors put a picc line in
my chest for the plasmapheresis treatment, and the picc line caused a huge blood
clot in my right arm, which cut off almost all the blood flow to said arm. I have
been on blood thinners for this, which appear to be helping, thank Goddess.

Well, 'tis all I have to report currently. I hope all is well with y'all, and I will
try to visit more often.

Kevin, I'm so glad to see you back here. It's been such a long, long time, and believe it or not, I've been thinking and wondering about you lately. Were you picking up the vibes? I'm sorry to hear about your recent health troubles, but hopeful to hear you're on the upswing. Upswing is good!

Hi Lima! Good to see you! Thank you, I hope you're doing well. I'm finding that the rehab, even though it kicks my butt, is key to getting better. Take care!

I hope you haven't had any relapses since you popped in to write this. I'm still thinking good thoughts for you, Kevin.
