I am finally back in my digs and, barring a Mack truck careening into my home or an asteroid crushing me from above or a malarial fever striking me down tonight (all of which, given my recent history, are quite possible), I should be back tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.
I also wanted to note for you the reason for my relative silence over the last 10 days, since there were no surgeries or extreme pains involved therein.
My chief physical problem was dehydration, which inflicted the usual frailties of fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and so on. In my case, however, the dehydration was severe, which can scramble the brain. Again, in my case, it did. Somewhere I lost two entire days, I threw away some household items which I had no intention of ever pitching, at times I couldn't recall certain common words, and, in one E.R. instance, I repeatedly asked an attending nurse and my daughter why I was there.
In short, I was frequently out of my fucking mind, yet just sane enough, on average, to know it. Thus I did not wish to commit God-knows-what to cyberprint on this site, only to be horrified by it in a sane moment of reading the next day.
Thank you for understanding. See you tomorrow.
