Wow... it sure has been a while! How are you all? I'm doing relatively well, considering the past few days. In case you haven't heard, I was admitted to the hospital on Sunday. On Monday, they removed my port, which was very much infected; and on Wednesday the doctors sent me home with a drain. Today is Friday, and I still have not been allowed back to school! Apparently, I am "contagious" as long as the drain is in. I find that rather odd; wouldn't you think it's the other way around?
I've been sitting around the house, desperately looking for something fun to do... I've emailed all my teachers so that I can catch up on schoolwork. I've worked a bit on the novel I'm writing (I'll tell you more about that in a later post), I've played piano and violin a bit... Last night, my parents went to church, and my grandpa took me and my siblings out to eat. That was pretty fun. I've also worked A LOT on my anime drawings that I've been working on! I'm now "taking orders" from some of my friends at school; they tell me the names of anime characters they really like, and I look the characters up and draw them! I'll see if I can figure out how to upload some of my pictures to this post.
All right, time for a major announcement! You guys ready? September 20-26 is Mito Awareness Week!!! Make sure to wear lots of green, and if your friends ask why... tell them all about mitochondrial myopathy! If you have any questions for me, about mito or my life with mito, please post them in the comments section! I will be going through and answering them throughout the week. I'm also trying to make a few more short, informational videos... I'll upload them as soon as they're done! And, if you would like some cool ideas for how to spread awareness, you can go to this link: http://www.umdf.org/site/pp.aspx?c=8qKOJ0MvF7LUG&b=7934679
I want to try the Light Bulb Campaign, myself! I wonder if people at my school would buy the light bulbs? Well, you never know until you try, right?
So, that's about it! I will be posting all throughout Mitochondrial Myopathy Awareness Week. Have a great day, and I'll give you guys an update soon!
