Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received a PM from Elvenfyre .
So I’ve decided that it’s time to tell you about what has happened the last few months.

My mother was very sick. So naturally I had to take care of her.
(FYI: it’s just a “two-person family” )
These were quite hectic months,... a day-job & doing all the homework means that there was no time left to work on my projects.
And even if there was time left, it simply was not time for it,
because everything else had a very low priority and seemed so pointless.

So, mum entered the stage that she was getting so sick , that I had to call the emergency-ambulance twice. At that time she couldn’t eat, sleep, walk  or even breathe normally.

So, after a couple of (afterwards,…wrong)  diagnoses, it was finally decided that she was scheduled for a heart-scan.
During the scan it turned out that she had fluid-buildup in the lungs & heart..
The cardiologist said, that if the scan was performed a week later,
then it could very well be that she wouldn’t be around for much longer.

The hospital took her in , and gave her injections & other medication.
These injections were used to get rid of the excess fluid in the lungs, heart, arms, legs and stomach. In the end she lost 14-15 litres in ONE week !

She is still scheduled for a percutaneous coronary intervention (or PCI ) ,
because of a heart-valve that’s not working properly. This causes some flutter (irregular heartbeat).

Now, she is home again, and everything is looking up again after a dark period.
She’s getting better (albeit very slowly) each day.

This means that very soon I’ll continue working on Dark Resurrection , Crusade of Great Intention , and a very secret 2d-project. I’ll have to catch up on my existing code first, though.

You can expect more news very soon .

Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Y'hear ?   Smiley

That sounds like a really tough thing to go through, but I'm glad she's on the road to recovery now. Give her my best wishes and I hope she gets well soon.

Hi everyone,

Finally got some time to post....

The procedure itself went well. Because of 7 (!!) different types of medicine she has to take in ,she is frequently out of breath, and she now has black and blue 'spots' all over her body,
due to an effect of a medicine that prevents blood-clotting.

There are signs of improvement..., it just may take a little bit longer than I thought.
So far so good.

See you soon.
