I haven't been around for at least 26 days.

On July 9, I was rushed to the hospital, I had a cellulitis in my left leg and the infection spread to my blood. I went septic.

Was in hospital for 10 days and in a in-patient rehab for 16 days.

I was so out of it, I don't remember anything about the 10 days at the hospital.

I'm home today, have a ton of antibiotics and probably won't be myself for 2-4 weeks.

I have to use a walker since my legs stopped working right.

This all came out of left field, nothing you can do about it to prevent it.

Glad to be back.

Al, your message is sobering, given all that has transpired this weekend. It just shows us all how fragile our own conditions are, no matter who we are, or what state we are in. We are all just part of this human experiment.

Heal brother. You have brought a lot of energy, vitality, and sass to these pages, and the pages have been richer for it. I am glad that you are on the mend, but I suspect this is merely a slight stumble for you on your journey. I don't know you, except by your posts here, which have always been full of vim and vigor. If that is how you live your life, you will be where you want to be in no time.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Thanks Oz.

And this is one of those things you have no control over. It doesn't happen because you eat too much, drink too much, do dope ... none of those things.

Granted, the older you are accounts for one thing, your immune system is not as strong as it once was, which opens a path for a bacteria to infect you.

Nasty stuff, you've been poisoned, and it leaves you body weak, your mind clouds, you can see things that are not there, and if it becomes too strong, it starts shutting down you organs.

I've been cut on in surgery many times, and I recover quickly. Not with this. It's a fight between the antibiotics and the bacteria. Seems like the antibiotics won this time (and I have to take a heavy regimen for the next few months.

Besides being a journalist you're a downright ornery cuss, which means in any faceoff between you and a malady, hands down money's on you!

Now I'm a sensitive sort so don't prove me wrong. The Café wouldn't be the same without its esteemed and much beloved resident curmudgeon!

Glad you are back, Al, and healing. Life is indeed fragile. I'll keep you in my prayers, if you don't mind.
