My ongoing struggles with Crohn's Disease are nothing new; I've mentioned them here plenty of times in passing as they relate to video games in various ways. Today's update has nothing to do with games, sadly. Unfortunately, another long-term bout with the illness recently pushed me to the lowest ends of health. I started to suffer from blackouts related to dehydration and malnutrition, but after a few days in the hospital hooked up to IV fluids and strong medications, I'm starting to get back to normal. You've noticed that things suddenly went silent here at PTB for a while; well, that's why. Without going into all of the gritty details, I'm going to be alright in the end. It just takes time to heal. I'm eating solid food again after being unable to keep anything down for a week, my pain and nausea levels are way down to the point that I don't need medication to treat those some days, and aside from feeling tired due to the ordeal my body has been through, I'm managing well. Thanks to everyone who followed along on my Twitter account while I was in the hospital who offered well-wishes and positive thoughts. I really appreciate the support. Now then, shall we get back to discussing video games?
