Title: My status
Post by: GM Powers on May 30, 2018, 09:47:00 PM
I was in a car accident a little over a week ago.  Dude spilled his coffee into his lap, ended up swerving across the divider and hit me head on.  I'm still in the hospital.  Broken arm, broken ribs, and concussion.  I also ended up with a large hematoma near my kidney which caused hydronephrosis (basically, the urine couldn't pass from my kidney to my bladder because of the size of the hematoma; the urine backed up in my kidney - this is not good for the kidney).  I've got a tube coming out of that kidney right now draining urine that is a lovely cola color.

All in all, I will be fine, it'll just take some time.  I haven't been online lately (and won't consistently be for a while) because looking at screens give me a massive headache due to the concussion.  I'll keep you guys updated.

Damn. Glad to hear you're ok, brother.

I spent two weeks in the hospital in February, but had it easier than you...

Get well. HIFFLE will be here when you get better.

I appreciate all the well wishes.  Seriously guys, it really means a lot to me.

I was discharged from the hospital a couple of days ago, and am at home now.  Had to have a small surgery where they went in and evacuated the hematoma (basically suck as much of the clot out as they could without disrupting anything else).  A few days later they were able to pull the tube out of my kidney.  My urine will be pretty dark for the next 6 weeks or so while everything heals, but there should be no long term effects.

No need for surgery for the arm - I've got another 7-10 days in a cast, then I can likely be put into a splint and sling while I work with physical therapy.  Ribs hurt, but are much better than they were.  Really the most annoying part right now is the effects of the concussion.  Still lots of headaches, still sensitive to light, stuff like that.  Really there is no telling how long that will last.

I'll be in and out as I am able.  Thanks again for the support.

So it didnít happen. Starting to question this whole play as another Dark Powers Reveal.
