    Okay, so i develop big blood clots in both lungs and can't process oxygen. I'm hooked up to an array of tubes in the hospital and the doctors are telling me that if i hadn't been brought in that night, i would likely not have woken the following morning (28 Feb). And what's going through my head?
    "Damnit! Now i won't be online to see what the big Remake/Remodel to-do is on the 28th at Whitechapel!!!"
    So now i'm functional enough to get online to see it, even if i can't breathe and have enough energy and concentration to participate - and i don't see a damn thing that looks like it could be related to the build up.

    What did i miss?

    Fucking hell, 3, good job on surviving that. I hope there's some sort of Whitechapel medal that can be awarded to people who clawed their way back to the land of the living to stay on the forum.

    But, yeah, in re: the actual question - I've been wondering that too. The Guv's new project ("SVK") was unveiled that day, so maybe that bumped whatever it was. Or maybe that was it - although I don't know how that relates to R/R.

    Once again, glad yr still with us and: Get well soon, 3.

    Judging from posts on warrenellis.com the guvnor seems to be a bit snowed under with work at the moment, so this is probably just a bit delayed...

    We were invited to participate in something, and then the people never got back to me and just did it themselves, from what I can work out. So it didn't happen.

    Congrats on not dying.

    I thought that's what may have happened. Too bad, we would have kicked ass.

    -3-: Having those thoughts about Whitechapel in those moments in your life is both admirable and frightening. Glad you're doing well-er.

    I'm glad too.

    And looking forward to seeing you back for the next R/R, whatever it may be.

    I leave it to others to decide on the associated title bestowed.

    Thanks, everyone, for the kind thoughts. Definitely feeling better day by day, and able to breathe well off the oxygen now, even if i get winded exceedingly easily still. Hopefully the strain i put on my heart with all of this has no long term implications, but we'll see.

    I know my priorities can run just a bit askew, to say the least. But that's why i'm a poor hermit artist living in the Pacific Northwest instead of the highly paid artist/animator living down in the Hollywood area like i used to be. So laying there staring at the monitors, the two thoughts filling my head were Whitechapel, and how many strips did i have already uploaded to the buffer for experiMental Theatre? (My webcomic) Fortunately, that was covered through the middle of the month, so that left me the Remake/Remodel to ponder. More annoyingly, i did know what it was once. When it was first mentioned, it was mentioned by name - but then only in vague terms after that point and i just could not remember what i had seen before. That was driving me to distraction. But, who knows? Maybe that helped push me to heal faster to find out, eh?
    ;)

    I can relate. About 6 years ago I had a nasty stomach problem, and had a whole bunch of endoscopy and biopsy work done. Worst case scenario was that I might have stomach cancer (almost always fatal).

    Thing that annoyed me the most about it? That I might not find out how Harry Potter ended.

    The human mind: a weird thing indeed.

    My wife took a saddle embolism three years ago. She got the "You're lucky you came in when you did" treatment from the docs--ohh, they fucking love trotting that old whore out, don't they--but she's the picture of health now, and only has her aspirin regimen as a lasting reminder (physically, of course).

    You'll get better.

    Wow -3-, a lucky break there!

    Apart from Warren's Project (SVK, make sure you sign up ok?) and one whitechapel resident having a kid (see good thing that happened you today thread), it´s been a bit quiet here...

    You lay back and demands the REALLY good meds and we'll see you back on the R/R threads ok?

    Glad you're starting to get better, and yeh it's strange what the mind comes up with when you aren't 100%.

    @Flaybo - You mean we don't all receive ultimate knowledge of all things when we die?
    What a gyp!

    @Fauxhammer - Yeah, i'm not very trusting of statements like that usually. But given how quick the onset was, i do tend to believe them this time. Friday i had to stop and rest while gasping for breath on a walk of two short blocks. Saturday, i had to stop and rest when i walked from bedroom to kitchen before making the return trip across the house. Sunday i sat gasping for air after moving the 5 feet from my bed to the chair at my computer table. Fairly frightening rate of progression there.

    @Icelandbob - Thanks, and good plan. Very effective tranqs they gave me for sleeping, so that part was nice at least.
    BTW - you were fun to draw! ;)

    @256 - Love It! That went up while i was typing the last note, and i didn't see it at all until just now. Makes me want a 3D printer just to fabricate one of those to wear in the physical world.
    Thanks much!

    @Rootfireember - Thanks, i'm glad, too. And yeah - my mind wanders off to strange places anyway, but i was kind of surprised at my priority of thoughts and concerns there.
