One month "downtime" (Not really down, just less active)

Unread post by 3ICE »

Some of you already knew this; I am 50% deaf. Only my left ear works.
I had an operation at age 9 which failed and left me with an even deafer -- and now permanently inflamed -- stub ear on the right side. Been trying to get that fixed ever since, and the opportunity arose now.
They can not fix the stubness (plastic surgery is too complicated, the risks are too high, it would take 8 hours+), but there is a 20-40% chance of restoring my hearing. A chance I am willing to take.

Going to hospital on Monday, June 20 for tests.
Will be operated on Wednesday, July 14.
Planned to be released either on Friday July 15 or next week on Monday, July 18.

I will be playing World of Warcraft on the Agamaggan Europe (PvP) realm. Only for one month though, no subscription.
I will be logged in on 3ICE quite a lot to keep the clan alive.
I will not be able to run my hostbot on a laptop though. Not enough processing power/RAM, and there won't be enough bandwidth either.

Update: I am home.
The operation went well, took over 2 hours.
I am recovering steadily, don't even need to take painkillers. I have three cuts around and behind my ear. One of them is infected so I have to take antibiotics twice a day.

Oh yeah, and I can't blow my nose for the next month. Bummer.

Yep, all is well. One more week and I'm back to normal. (5 weeks to fully heal, but I'm already out of bed.)

EDIT: That is one tall signature... I'd resize it to 300px or less.
