This is a Kaldath Health Update.

Well folks we have a good new bad news situation here, though mostly good news. I have been discharged from Hyperbaric treatments early because my foot has already healed up, and if it is still considered "healed" next week at my wound care appointment I will be discharged from wound care also. The Bad new is that my regular doctor thinks I have a bulging disc in my back and will be sending me to physical therapy to treat it. My back is causing me a great deal of pain, resulting from a fall I took right after being discharged from the hospital. In any event things are certainly looking up for me healthwise even if pain is still an issue at this point.

I’m still here

Hey folks, nothing major, but I just wanted you to know that Ye Olde Jeffe is still alive and kicking. The mods are doing a great job and I'm so happy you all are creating and having fun, but if there's anything you'd like to see us do more or less of please let me know.

I am also working on a Sooper Sekrit project that will hopefully pave the way for a HeroMachine 4 that is HTML-based instead of relying on Flash. Which is good, because Flash is, sadly, going to be pretty much non-existent at some point in the near future.

Anyway, thanks for being such a great community and keep on creating!

Pop Quiz – Happy 50th! – Results

This week's win goes to Atomic Punk. Love the pseudo-vintage vibe of the character, and the details in the face and uniform are very effective. Well done you!

Summer Movie Round Up!

Ah, September. Kids are back to school, it’s cooler in the mornings, and people like myself are already three months into Halloween planning. But now is that time that people also look back and reflect on the summer movie run for the year. So let’s take a look at a sample of what this year had to offer from May-August. Now, my list is a bit short, and will be missing some obvious entries. We live pretty far from the closest theater so we don’t get a chance to see everything. So here’s what we have, in order of release (and spoiler-free!):

KHU

Hey Folks, Just a quick update on my current health status. Good news is, I got results from a culture my doctor took last week and I am MRSA free, On the little bit good, little bit bad news front my doctor has decided to extend my disability for  nearly an additional month due to the wounds caused by the toe and bone amputations on my foot. So instead of returning to work in 3 weeks on Sept. 20th I am currently slated to return to work on Oct. 17th pending additional evaluation and completion of my Hyperbaric treatments. So there you have it, not a lot to report this time around but things for the most part are heading in the right direction.

Once more a KHU!!

Well I went to wound care today and also spoke with the hyperbaric tech. All good news. The xray of my foot came back with no additional infection in the bones of my foot so no additional surgery. The hyperbaric tech said my insurance cleared the treatment and my first "dive" is tomorrow morning at 10 am. Tech said to expect it to take about 3 hours! Here is basicly what the chamber looks like:

40 treatments for 3 hours each monday-friday and hopefully my foot will be fully healed by the end of which! Wish me luck everyone!!!
