    well, as some folks may have noticed the past few weeks i haven't been as active on line as usual. about 3 weeks ago, thursday jan 29, i had sinus surgery to correct a deviated septum from a broken nose, along with with a few other things. all things were going well, until the following monday when i hemorraged out of one side of my nose, necessitating another trip to the hospital and under the knife.

    things were then going well again until this past monday, when i started hemorraging again out of the other side, again requiring a trip to the hospital and under the knife. i just got out last night, and i'm going to be taking it pretty easy for the next few days, so make an effort to behave, huh? thanks.

    I thought things had been a bit quiet around here.

    My dad had serious sinus surgery last year. I know what he went through, and he didn't hemorrage twice.

    Take care, sport. If you need me to bring you any comic books, or anything, just give me a shout. :D :bassist:

    I had been wandering the forums looking for your posts, and unable to find any. Then I was wondering what happened. I thought maybe you found somewhere better to hang out.

    I am glad to hear you are recovering, and your return to regular posting will not be too soon.

    Sorry to hear all that. Heal well. I'll keep ya in my prayers.
  5. Wow, I hope the recovery goes smoothly from this point. Sounds like a rough few weeks there. Things did seem a bit odd without your input for a while...

    Was the broken nose part a new injury, or an old one that didn't heal quite right?
