Thanks JT Webster for letting everyone know why everything went dark here for a wee while.
I'm back home, having finally been released from the hospital this afternoon. I was admitted quite suddenly on Wednesday with an extremely low platelet count. Turns out I have something called ITP or Indopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura which basically means a blood disorder of low platelets (the blood doesn't clot as it ought) due to an unknown cause.
After a bit of therapy my platelets are still low but no longer at critical levels, and I've been released back into the wide world.
So thanks everyone for your kind words and your patience. I hope to get the second part of my interview with TK online tomorrow, so do check back.
