Why you disappeared for a few months

This is very simple - Life

In May my father was scheduled for a knee replacement (his second) The month before that was loaded with doctor's appointments Being 89 and hard of hearing I went to 99 per cent of them Two days before the surgery his other leg developed an interior skin infection (can't spell it but it starts with cell....) Over the next three months the infection came back numerous times and canceled two surgery dates After 7 bouts of the infection coming back he was finally cleaned at the end of July At one point we had 14 doctor's appointments in 10 days In the middle of this he caught a cold which developed into pneumonia This was short lived
Added to all this two of our cats died about 10 days apart of separate causes
The stress has added to my diabetes problems with multiple high and lows The worse was about three weeks ago when I came down with a stomach virus At some pint early in the morning I came down with a severe insulin reaction and went into convulsions and fell off the bed When I came too I was on the opposite side of the rooms with numerous cuts, a badly bitten tonque, and a badly injured shoulder When I got down stairs I was up to 54 and spent most of the days cleaning up
