Hi guys, just wanted to tell you you're evidently liking me way too much on here, lol - I just noticed the number of Likes for my account have now surpassed the number of my Posts here in the forum, although this post will even them back up at 2,138. I'm really glad I have a place I can hang out and share anime thoughts with everyone, even worldwide, from here in the US, and I want to thank everyone for welcoming me into this forum. 🤗

I'm now at home after 11 days in the University of Pennsylvania hospital in Philadelphia for pancreatic cancer surgery; they performed a Whipple procedure and while they were at it they also removed an umbilical hernia at my belly button that was getting close to tennis ball in size. I now have a 12" incision running down the center of my belly, so I'm not a pretty sight with my shirt off, lol. I don't have a belly button anymore because of the hernia removal, so now I'll have proof to show people that I was hatched instead of birthed, haha! I am now in recovery mode, slowly feeling a little bit better every day. I have to give myself 7 shots a day in the leg, with blood thinners and insulin, for the next 30 days, ugh! Can't wait to get over all this and get back to my normal routine. Again, thank you for all the good wishes from everyone on here with my surgery and recovery - I'm glad I'm at least now able to get back on the anime forums! 😌

Oh nooo! 😭 I hope you both fully recover very soon :) ❤️👍
Thanks. Little'un has sprung back, she threw up 3 times last night & hasn't since so here's hoping.
Me on the other hand: I can't stand up, even laying down I'm dizzy & sore... thrown up so much & so I often that I've pulled or strained most my chest/side muscles to the point that anything but shallow breathes hurts & using the loo is like spraying acid. Fun times!

Worst part for me is being utterly useless & my other half having to do everything.
I get angry & frustrated when illness disables me & my body can't keep up with my willpower.

I really hope her & the baby don't get it. Been crawling around cleaning what I can with bleach but I can't get downstairs to put the blankets etc in the washing machine.

Wow that sounds rough :( I'm cheering for you! I have chronic health issues and disabilities so I've learned to accept certain things about that like needing more help than others do in some ways, but it is difficult when one's brain/body won't play ball, I feel for you and I really hope it all turns out alright for you and your family :)

I have some messy mental stuff but nothing on the overly physical aside from a crooked spine/mismatch in leg length ^_^; (it's not a huge issue until I get towards OAP apparently).

I'm sorry for being self absorbed when this is such a temporary state of being & others don't have the luxury.

I didn't mean it like that :) The major physical thing for me is diabetes type 2 - most of my issues are mental as well. Everyone matters and everyone's suffering matters :)

I find it weird that HiDive has started asking me to prove I'm human by answering basic maths questions. Apparently if there's one cast-iron way to prove you're not a computer, it's doing simple computation...
Is the question in an image or in text? Makes more sense if it's part of an image like the usual tests. My account isn't giving me these tests so I wouldn't know

Had a crazy weekend of DnD!

Met an Abott who seemed well suspect as he had all these weird chimera creatures locked up but when we met him he was a bit odd but fairly decent. It was more of an asylum he was running to keep the creatures safe it seemed and he said he could raise dead for us. We realised my bard had only died 7 days ago in game time we went and dug him up and he brought him back. So I now have 2 characters to play!

We then ran into our rangers nemesis who a tough SOB (and had been stalking and killing his family for sometime) but managed to defeat him without losing our ranger and our Fallen Aisimir landed the killing blow which triggered her re-ascension to divinity and her skeletal wings became angelic again! Our DM played it all to perfection as we no idea what was going on!
