Longest week ever

September 14, 2010

Hey loyal readers [all four of you, hah] sorry I’ve been MIA, but it’s been a crazy week.  I got home from PAX last Monday, after a red eye flight – on the most uncomfortable planes of all time, no more US Air for this girl – and then it was back to work, back to school, and all the chaos that ensues.  Then two nights later I spent the evening in the ER for what the doctors think was a gallbladder attack.  I’m feeling a bit better, although it still hurts… not entirely sure the medication they gave me is working, but we’ll see how it goes.  At any rate it was a completely exhausting week.

As you may already know, I have been dealing with chronic health problems for over a year now, and the wait times for tests and specialists in Ontario is atrocious.  I waited from last fall until April to see a neurologist, and then from April on to see a rheumatologist (yes, that’s over a year for two appointments).  I was supposed to get in sometime around December, but was squeezed in last Monday on short notice.  I think my family doctor had something to do with it, I must thank him.  So, yesterday I had a long and completely exhausting appointment that left me with some answers and lots more questions… I’m still processing everything and will share that at another time.

So, the point of it is I have half a FanExpo post and half a PAX post written for you, but nothing finished… I feel like a  blogging failure.  The frustrating part is that I have so much I want to say after experiencing PAX again, it’s so inspirational, so engaging, so exciting to be there… I hope to get some time to get my thoughts down to share with everyone.

Thanks to all my ‘real’ friends and twitterfriends for the encouragement and support, and to Jeff for running the ship when I’m physically or emotionally MIA.  You guys are the best!

    Sorry to hear you’ve been ill. Gall bladder problems can be painful. I hope you will feel better soon. Blessings to you…

    Family and health are way more important than blogging. I don’t think anyone will hold a grudge against you for the PAX posts ;)

    Blogging, smogging. Just take care of your health, that’s all that counts. Hope you get the diagnosis/info/meds/treatment that you may need soon. Dealing with specialists is a full-time job in and of itself.

    I had to comment on this one too.. I have chronic back pain from a work injury I had in the US. Because of that, I use neurosurgeons and services in Michigan and I am blown away at how I can get an MRI in a DAY! Same day! Insane!

      Wow, here it’s 7-10 months for an MRI. Same day is crazy for sure – good for you though! I assume you’re in Canada?
