Default Me...

I haven't been around much. You might have noticed I was posting a lot before a couple weeks ago. I got sick about 2 months ago and just now finished my second surgery and am starting to recover from it.

Its nothing too major. I ended up getting what I thought was just a flu, but it was actually a cyst in my neck getting infected and starting to grow. It was giving me flu like symptoms as it leaked bacteria. After about a week and a half of feeling that way I went to the doctor thinking the flu was taking to long to go away. He gave me some strong antibiotics. That wasnt helping and a couple days later the cyst was visible on the outside, it was getting huge. So I had surgery scheduled to drain it and test it. It wasnt a tumor or cancer or anything else really scarey. So we tried draining it. That didnt work, it grew back bigger and faster. I had surgery monday to have it completely removed and now I have stitches and staples holding my neck closed about 1/4th of the way around my neck.

It all feels kinda weird. But it looks like I am ok now. We will see. I should be recovering for a couple weeks from all of this. I should also start posting again
