Brief Update

Posted by Scott Holstad on August 10, 2011

Hi all.  I’m so sorry for neglecting this blog.  It’s almost all health related, and there’s not a whole lot I can do about that. I’ve been feeling quite ill for about a month now.  Add to this fact that last Monday, I had another neurological surgical procedure, like I had in May, and that wore me out for a few days.  Here’s the strange thing though. In May, the day after my procedure, I developed massive pain that was nearly indescribable and I had to be hospitalized for five days.  Was not a good time.  Well, last week, a few days after this same procedure (they’re messing with the Trigeminal Nerve, the biggest nerve in the brain — good times…), I started feeling some pain, but this developed at a much slower rate, so it took me a day and a half to catch on to the fact that the same thing as what happened to me in May was happening again, so I made it to my doctor Monday morning, was put on a series of medications, etc., but — as I’ve been told before — when this happens to me again in the future, I’m going to be facing some hard core surgery that I’d do just about anything to avoid.  Indeed, if these antibiotics, etc., don’t have me “cured” by Sunday, there’s a good chance I’ll have to go “under the knife” next week, and like I said, I’d rather go deaf than have this surgery, or perhaps even blind.  I can think of many things I’d rather endure than have this f***ing surgery!!!

So over the past month, I’ve had some hard core medicinal changes, had a surgical procedure with anesthesia, and some other really painful things, and have frankly had to endure a great deal of significant pain and discomfort, so I haven’t had the energy, really, to blog.  I hope anyone reading this will understand and forgive my lack of updates.

Truthfully, I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting updates in the near future. So much depends on so much, if that’s not too confusing. I just have a lot on my plate and I’m frankly more concerned with staying alive right now than I am about updating a damn blog.  Anyway, that’s all for now.  I hope anyone reading this is having a pleasant evening.  Cheers!
