Haven't posted here in a long time. I've had a virus in my abdominal wall since November and in-and-out of the hospital. Last go around was six days, from the 30th to the 5th. I basically lost interest in doing anything--writing, posting to the blog, reading---I just existed. The stupid tv was the only thing going, esp. in the hospital. Still not over the virus, but at least I'm getting more rest at night and out of the hospital.
