It occurred to me how long it's been since my last update, and I thought I need to do everyone the courtesy of at least letting you all know the basics of what is going on at the moment.

I have been working on my fics, both new and old. My problem is that I write more fluidly with a good, old-fashioned notebook and pen, but then I tend to procrastinate when it comes to typing up the handwritten stuff.
Currently, I have an update almost ready to go for "Futurus Redemptor", and the first chapter of the new installment in my "What Never Should Be" series is written and just needs to be typed.

My procrastination, I'm afraid, has come back to bite me in the proverbial.

A week and a half ago, my father collapsed and had to be taken to hospital. It was determined that he needed a pacemaker, and thankfully that all went smoothly. The fact that he is an insulin dependent diabetic with a family history of heart disease gives us even more reason to be thankful to God, because any surgical procedure presents an even higher risk than normal for him.

Anyway, we figured he was on the mend and the worst was over. Right? Wrong.

The following Monday, I experienced escalating stomach pain which eventually landed me in hospital. I was there for the next three days before being allowed home, and I am looking at a rather slow recovery with a number of follow-up specialist appointments.

At the moment, I can't sit for too long at a computer, so getting my updates out is going to take even longer than I hoped. I want to reassure everyone that they are coming, though, and hopefully as soon as I can stand to sit in front of my computer for more than ten minutes at a time.

So, I am truly sorry to anyone who might have been waiting on updates from me. I will do them as soon as I am able, and hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.

I hope you and your dad get better soon *hugs*
Take care of yourself :)

Glad your dad is on the mend. My mom went through the same thing, and she's also insulin-dependent, so I know how much of a risk that can be.

As for you...get better quick. We'll all still be here, don't worry about us. Just take care of yourself first. *hugs*

Glad your dad's doing okay and I hope you'll be fully recovered soon. Everything seems to happen at once, doesn't it?

Seriously? Didn't they think you had cause to be anxious? Sometimes I worry about medical professionals, they don't seem to understand their patients.

That's awful! It's no wonder you were so stressed. You'd have to be the most laid-back person in the galaxy to not find that stressful.

No apologies necessary. I'm sorry you've had so much trouble :( I wish both you and your father all the best and I'm sending healing thoughts and prayers your way <333333

I hope you and your dad get better soon. Your health is the most important thing, so take care of your self and everything else can wait.

Just take care of yourself. Hope you and your dad recover quickly. My Dad is diabetic too, and I know how problematic that makes any medical procedure. *hugs*

Take care of yourself and your family. Those are most important.

Hoping for a quick recovery for you and your father.

Don't worry about us - we may get crabby at not receiving updates (because, of course, it's all about *us*) - but you and your family are really a lot more important than satisfying *our* needs. Despite the way we may act, we really don't *have* to have any updates to continue our existence. LOL

Y'all get well soon. *Then* will be time enough to think about us.
