Holding Pattern

So I haven’t posted in a few days…and mainly it’s because I’m going a little stir crazy in here. Nothing major to report, really. But, I figured I’d update everyone.

Projected Release Date:

The beginning prediction was anywhere from Wednesday the 27th, to Wednesday July 4th. That’s still in play, but now I have 2 doctors who’ve made bets. One thinks “end of the weekend”, and one thinks Tuesday. I’m really hoping to be out of here this weekend, but we’ll see how it goes.


Despite spending a fairly long time with essentially a non-existent immune system, I’ve only had a single fever, and continue to be pretty normal.

I have a sty on my right eye that is continuing to be annoying and not really heal, but also not really get any worse.

Most of the other bodily functions are returning to normal.


Turns out my hair ain’t actually magical. It’s starting to fall out fairly quickly. Interestingly enough, it’s only the hair on the top of my head, my facial hair (not my eyebrows, yet), and my “other” hair. Hair on my arms and legs hasn’t started to fall out yet. Selectively shedding, as it were. I feel like a dog.

Also interesting is that most people haven’t really been able to tell. My hair is just so god damn thick that even though it seems like I shed a shitzou every day, it still looks fairly normal. But I can tell it’s definitely thinning out to what might even be a “normal” level of thickness for hair. We’ll see if my numbers recover soon enough to save the mohawk, or if I have to just shave the rest of my hair off.


What I’m Doing With My Time:

Books read count is at I think 5. Most of them short, but one ~700 or so pager as well. I figured out that I’m walking like 3 or 4 miles a day just by lapping the hell out of my floor. I got PT to give me some therapy bands to kill some time, and also got this pathetic little pedal thingy to try to give myself some semblance of biking again.

Also just hanging out, getting lots of visitors. Good stuff.


So I’ll post more as it comes to me, and as usual, if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask in the comments, via email, text, facebook, whatever. If I get enough questions, I’ll do a “reader suggestion” post or something. Let me know!


  1. Glad to hear things have at least been stable. If you find yourself in need of book recommendations, I’ve piled all my queue on a spreadsheet because I am a huge nerd https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AuWvxqr4pSoPdGxQbV9acFQ5djFtUWdOUWFKcGpNVHc

    1. Hah! Nerds are good. I’ll check it out.
