[I haven't been on LJ for a few months; things got kind of busy and it was LJ that suffered.]
But it's definitely time for a quick update, since this is news some of my flist will want to know.
I have just been in a specialist stroke ward in hospital for several days. And I got there in the lamest way possible.
I had a Transient Ischaemic Attack
(TIA). That's not the lame part. Like a stroke but you get better right away.
I coughed my way into it. That's the lame part.
You see, I coughed so hard I tore my carotid artery
That started to heal.
And then I coughed some more - a really big nasty one - and dislodged a clump of platelets which of course, being the carotid, went straight to my brain.
And here we are.
So no trip to the US! Damn, I really like Chicago. In fact I can't even drive for the moment.
Anyway, I'm fine, though I'm still coughing, in spite of scads of medications.
