One of my friends commented about me being elsewhere and I discovered that my last post here was in March of 2015! Much has happened to me since then, good and bad:

- As I told my friend, I've been at working on my author's platform. I have my Author Fan Page on Facebook. (There's also a mailing list. If you aren't on FB, no problem. Send me a private message with your e-mail address and I'll manually add you to the list.

Other ways to follow me are my blog and @jabwriter on Twitter.

- 2015 was the end of an era for me: after 23 years I had my ponytail cut off. No longer a long hair guy.

- July was my longest hospital stay ever. Because of a major infection, I was in the ward for 2 weeks, then 3 more at home. This really messed up many things for me.

I'll post more over time, but for now I'm back!

 I haven't been on either Dreamwidth or Livejournal often lately, so readers of those wouldn't notice. My readers on Facebook likely have however...

May 9-12 I was in the Jewish General Hospital here in Montreal. I had an infection that seemed to tire me out on the 8th; by 4 AM on the 9th I woke in bed only able to move enough to press my Lifeline panic button - but I was so weak I could barely be heard on its speaker. An ambulance was sent and the drivers had to break my door to get to me.

At first I didn't think I needed to go to a hospital but they did. Considering how bad I was, I'm glad I listened! In Emergency I was pumped full of fluids (I was dehydrated) and started on an antibiotic drip. About 2 hours later I could speak better.

One of my sisters is listed as an emergency contact. She called my mom and dad. When I was wheeled back from a chest x-ray mom was waiting for me.

I was pretty composed until then, but within 10 seconds my emotional floodgates fell out.

There were others that I wished could be told but I had no way to reach them.

3 days of hospital bed-rest and I was allowed to go home. I have a 9-day antibiotic prescription for it, and I'll get to bed again soon.

I'll go back on Facebook Sunday in the day. Many of my games may have timed out,  but so what? My well-being matters more.
