Surgery Update

Journal Entry: Mon May 14, 2018, 4:11 PM

Those who watch my status updates will know that I'm going back in for surgery for the first time since 2014 to remove some masses in my abdomen (I'm being deliberately vague about it because I'm not yet ready to discuss my health in detail, but hopefully that will change in the near future). The masses have come back from the last time and, similar to before, seem to be either growing on or pushing on my bowel. This has really screwed with my digestive system (I'll spare you the gory details) and combined with the extreme fatigue and anxiety, it's making the wait torturous. Waiting  The hospital is pretty booked up, so I can't go in until early June. Not to mention, it's a different hospital this time, which is a shame because I really liked the last one. However, I've had a few people say that this one is also really friendly, so I'm crossing my fingers that it will be a good experience. My grandfather had so many crappy doctors when he was in and out of the hospital those few years before his death that I can't help but be a bit nervous about that. However, I'm really lucky in that I know and trust my surgeon, so that's one positive.

They're planning to do this robotically, like before (more accurate and less invasive, with a shorter recovery time) but if it turns out that this mass is growing on my bowel, then the surgeon may need to remove a section of my bowel to get it all. If that's the case, he'll have to opt for the more invasive option, which means a longer, more painful recovery. Obviously I don't want that to happen, but I told him to just do whatever he had to, to keep this from coming back. I'm probably not as nervous as I should be, as I'm more anxious about the wait than I am about the surgery itself, but I can't say the same for the people around me. Everyone is obviously so much more worried than I am, and kind of treating me like I'm made out of glass. :patting:  It would be funny if it wasn't such a serious situation. Okay, it's still a little funny. Even my doctor told my mom, "Oh, they must have been in so much pain", but I really wasn't. Mostly I was just exhausted all the time, having trouble sleeping, and having digestive issues. I wasn't really in pain. So either I have the pain tolerance of a freaking marine or I've just gotten to a point that I'm simply dead inside and can feel nothing. Neither would surprise me, to be honest. 

Anyway, I'll try and keep you guys updated as things progress.

-Until next time, Vex out! :salute:  

  • Drinking: Dr. Pepper


In an effort to give myself something to concentrate on until my surgery date so I'm not just sitting around pulling my hair out, I've decided to upgrade my two hermit crabs (one Caribbean and one Ecuadorian) to a bigger enclosure. And when I say upgrade, I mean they're currently in my ball python's original Exo Terra tank (which is the equivalent of about a 20 gallon aquarium) and they're going into a 65 gallon aquarium with a climbable background, a bunch of new things to play on, and plants (plastic and, hopefully, a couple of crab-safe live ones if they don't annihilate them).

I'm also raising some isopods (pill bugs/roly polies) to be the clean-up crew with the hope that it will be a self-sustaining little environment versus just a cage. FYI, despite how cute they are, isopods really aren't the worlds most exciting animals to keep. I had to riffle through their substrate just to confirm they were still alive. Also, you can google giant isopods if for some reason you want to scar yourself for life (seriously, it's the stuff of nightmares).

Part of the reason I opted for such a big tank for my crabs is for the extra height. In a 40 or 50 gallon you're mostly getting length, so with the minimum six inches of substrate needed for them to molt properly, that doesn't leave a lot of climbing room. And my crabs love to climb, so the height was a must (they've been so depressed since I've had them in that low Exo Terra and I feel so bad). I'm trying to figure out if I want to post the tank setup via status updates or just make one big post with pictures and show it to you guys all at once. Let me know if you guys have any preference one way or the other. 
Well, I just got back from meeting with my surgeon and it looks like I'll be going back under the knife again within the month. For those that don't know, I had multiple (thankfully non-cancerous) masses removed from my abdomen in 2014. Well, my previous condition has come back and is interfering with my health, so something has to be done before it gets worse. It's a bit scary, but I really like and trust my surgeon, so I think it will be all right. There are a whole slew of other details to go along with this, but I'm going to hold off on sharing those until a later date. It's still a bit early for me to feel like going into it, but don't worry, it's not anything bad. ^^;

"Ahhhh, mind your own business and let me steal other artists' work in peace!!! If other people steal, then I can do it too, so there!!!" *Blocks*

Hilarious and incredibly mature, to be sure. :sarcasm:
I'm really surprised by the amount of positive feedback I got on my Morrowseer AU post. I'm really glad so many people enjoyed it. :happybounce: Maybe I should post more AUs and headcanons.

Hmm...does anyone else headcanon that Orchid and Mangrove are Glory and Jambu's parents? I also like the idea of Kinkajou being Glory's little sister, so that would make her their daughter as well. I don't know, I just think it sounds really sweet. :)
While reading the first arc of WoF I became convinced that Morrowseer was Starflight's father, and looking back I think that would have made Morrowseer, a villain with no real redeeming characteristics, who's only ever shown to be cold, cruel, and manipulative, into an incredibly interesting character. Imagine it. 

Morrowseer creating the prophecy with the knowledge that it would be his dragonet's ticket off the island.

Morrowseer realizing that his son has grown fearful and insecure in his absence, and trying to instill him with confidence, but coming across as overbearing and aggressive.

Morrowseer trying desperately to protect his son while struggling to retain an aloof exterior, fearful that the Queen will accuse him of favoritism and punish Starflight in his place.

Morrowseer finally confessing the truth to his son after the death of the Skywing soldiers, and telling to him all about the broken eggs and dead dragonets that came before him, about how he gave him up to save him from a similar fate.

Morrowseer trying to make Starflight understand why he must see the Rainwings as his enemies, to detach himself from their suffering, because if he doesn't, more dragonets like his brothers and sisters will die.

Morrowseer seeing Starflight stand by the Rainwings as they lay siege to the island, wanting to fight back, but unwilling to harm his son.

Morrowseer coming clean about the prophecy, not out of spite, but in an attempt to convince Starflight to listen to him.

Morrowseer shielding his son from the volcano, taking the full blast while only Starflight's eyes were scalded.

Morrowseer dying for something, never knowing his son saved their tribe.

Secretkeeper taking an egg out into the Rainforest after having the last one snatched away by her mate and flown off to the continent.

Moonwatcher never knowing that the blind librarian who looks so much like her is her brother.
