View Full Version : Why I have been absent

6th Dec 2002, 10:21
This is a bit of a long story lol.

My friend's husband got a blood clot on the brain whilst they were on holiday in Lanzarote (Nov 17). He nearly died, to cut a long story short, and was flown to Dr Negrin hospital in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. Since that date, I haven't left her side and also spent a week in Las Palmas visiting Jerry in the hospital, I had to be so strong it was untrue, and it was a very draining, traumatic time for the both of us. I only got back on Tuesday, and am recovering lol. Jerry made a miraculous recovery by the way!! He's back home now, it's amazing how well he is, he could have had brain damage and been paralyzed. That's all down to the great staff at UMI in Dr Negrin :) So, I'm still pretty drained and I don't have the energy to carry on with any of my projects at the moment. So I apologize to Netslider, Lionel and Stormchaser for any lack of work, cos I just don't have the impetus to do anything at the moment. But give me time though! I'm sure I'll be back on track soon.

That's ok Litepulsar, you don't have to apologise. Those kind of thinks happen, unfortunatly.
You can do it another time when you are totaly recovered from that.
A nice recovery for your husband, and you. ; )
