Sanguinarius's Little Corner of Babble

Random Crap from Sangi

Sanguinarius's surgery update (2012-10-31)

To make a long story short, the thoracic surgeon who was going to do my surgery decided not to at this point because the risk factors outweigh the benefit factors.  They are going to monitor my condition every 6 months or a year for the time being, and unless the dissection or aorta's diameter gets larger (it seems to be pretty stable at this point), then just leave it alone and monitor it.  if it enlarges any, then surgery may become an option again.  But at this point, it's too risky to do what they need to do.

So for me, it's back to taking Ambien at night so I can fall asleep without keeping awake worrying that something might happen (and I am about 30 minutes away by ambulance from the nearest hospital).

Sangi's surgery announcement (crossposted)

 I will be having some major surgery done in a week, if all goes according to schedule and as planned.  On or approximately August 14th, I will be going in to the hospital to have my Aortic Arch repaired (open heart surgery). I've gotten a few preliminary tests done ahead of time to make sure I'm okay for the surgery.

It's a very long and involved operation (something like 10 hours, I think they said), and I'm not sure how long I will remain in the hospital after it's been done (probably at least 2 weeks), or how long I will spend at home recuperating before I even feel like doing anything but lying around all doped up on painkillers.  My dad had the same condition as I do (Marfan's Syndrome) and the same surgery.  I think my mom said that he did not have a lot of pain, but I am a big wuss when it comes to pain.

I have my cell phone linked to my FaceBook account, so I will be able to send status updates to my wall once I am coherent enough and feel like it.  In the meantime, Jeff will probably post updates on my wall.  Unfortunately (for some people), I believe you will need a FaceBook account to view these updates, although you do not have to be on my Friends' list.  I am Sanguinarius E. Sanguinarius on FB and my url is <https://www.facebook.com/sangivamp>.  Feel free to send healing energies, prayers, and warm wishes, but please do NOT email me.

I am making arrangements to preserve and pass on Sanguinarius.org (or at least the information contained, like articles, guide, visitors' experiences, etc.) should the unthinkable happen and I die or become a vegetable or otherwise be unable to function according to normal ability.  This is not likely, but there is a possibility and I would be remiss if I did not prepare for it.  I'm too stubborn to just give up without a fight, though.  ;)

Good Vampires Do

sanguinarius
Greetings,

I am working on developing a new section on Sanguinarius.org that showcases the good things real vampires do.  This could include anecdotes about their experiences while volunteering for a charitable organization, helping out with a neighborhood block party or seasonal festival, EMTs saving lives, supporting a cause, working with animals, handicapped people or the elderly, catching criminals, or what have you.  Send your anecdotal submissions to submissions (at) sanguinarius.org and be sure to include the name/credit/webpage/email address/whatever you wish me to credit you for your story, and I will get back with you when I publish it.

Please also spread the word about the new "Good Vampires Do" section.  It's not created yet; I need to gather some materials for it first.  (An empty "Good Vampires Do" section might look kinda bad, if you know what I mean...so get to writing down your experiences and send them in before you put it off and never do it.)

Not Bye Everyone, not bye Livejournal

Ignore this entry - I'm not leaving LJ yet.

LiveJournal just got me to do what nobody else could do,not myspace, not Yahoo, not FaceBook, not even Google.  And that is to get me to move my primary blog off of LiveJournal!  They forced me to view something (presumably an ad, but it doesn't matter; there was no way to close it and continue on to what *I* was doing) before I accessed my page.  Bye. It's been good.  You can find me over on FaceBook.

**EDIT**
I re-enabled AdBlock Plus in FireFox and that apparently took care of the problem.  Maybe I will keep my LJ.  I've had it so long and been through so much with it, I'd hate to have to give it up like that *snaps fingers*
