Hey eveyone, I am here with another KHU ( Kaldath Health Update). Going to try and keep this brief as sitting at my computer hurts my chest and I hate using my phone to write posts. Bad news first, the daptomycin that I am taking to battle the MRSA continues to  cause me a little more pain everyday. Everyday I am on the stuff I find it harder to make it through the day without having to resort to percription pain killler and the less ibuprofen and tylenol help me. To make matters worse I had car troubles the other day and in the process of getting the car running again ended up spraining my wrist which just adds another spot of pain to my already growing list.

The good news, my left shoulder which has been in agony for over a month now due to the infection has begun to feel better. The pain is mostly gone so long as I do not over do things with it which is hard not to do at times considering I am left handed.  Also since I had gotten out of the hospital ( the first time ) I have been very sensitive to cold temps. What used to feel comfortable for me in the past is suddenly now freezing cold,. Not sure if this is due to the Mrsa, my medications or a combination of the two, however things have begun to improve on that front in the last couple days. While I find the temps my family keep the houses Air conditioner set to still to be comfortably  chilly I no longer need to put on a jacket and wrap myself in a blanket to stay warm. So in summation pain is still a very big issue with me at the moment but there are some promising signs that the meds are working to knock this nasty infection right out of me!

Yep another update!

Kaldath here again to keep you all updated.  i'm being released from the hospital again today which is good news the bad news I've been diagnosed with MRSA I have several small pockets of the infection in my chest.  I now have to have daily IV infusions of a very strong antibiotic for the next five weeks and then get retested. If the antibiotics don't work I'm going to have to have surgery to have those pockets of infection drained.  i've already had one pocket it drain and  and dealing with a great feel pain right now and I'm afraid that I might be MIA for a few months and weeks at this point but I'll try to keep you updated on my condition  if you'd like me to.  I'm not in the best of spirits but I'm not no in the worst if spirits either. I'm hoping the antibiotics work and that I'll be back to my normal self in a month or so.  wish me luck everybody!

Back in The Hospital!

Kaldath here, well I am back in the hospital after some complications with my foot and other things. Needless to say I am notva happy camper and suffering some nasty depression right now not to mention bored out of my mind!! FML!!!

Quick update on me !

Kaldath here,  I figure I just let you all know I'm still in the hospital there's a hold up due to special equipment I need before I can be discharged that my insurance doesn't cover I am hopeful however that I will be discharged within the next couple days and then I have about five weeks of rehab  and wound care on the surgically wounds of my foot.

Taking a week or so off

Hey Folk,

Just want to let you all know that due to being incredibly sick right as well as having some major back pain issues at the same time I find myself unable to focus on anything for very long and also in very bad temper. As a result of this I plan on taking a week or so break from doing anything related with HeroMachine. In fact beside for going to work at night I am spending all my time in bed sleeping or trying to sleep. Please do not try and contact me unless you can not react one of the other mods first. I am miserable and just wish all the pain and discomfort would go away!


Kaldath’s Corner: The Hamster himself on becoming the Joker!

Greetings Fellow Machiners!

Welcome to another addition of Kaldath's Corner. This week I stumbled across a bit of video on youtube I thought I'd share with you all for your entertainment. Now this isn't new as it was originally posted something like 4 or 5 years ago and many of you may have seen it already like I already had, but I felt it worth another watch. With that being said I present to you a little history on Mark Hamill obtaining the roll to voice the Joker on Batman: TAS as present by the Hamster himself!

Submission Box: Extra Frames – Tracer and Pose Design 101

This video was submitted by Tuldabar to Jeff who then sent it to me to take a look at. I found it to be interesting and entertaining and while it focuses mostly on gaming animators the lessons within can be applied to us the HeroMachine community and our work on custom poses!
