I've been inconvenienced

I haven't worked on my blog in more than a week. I think I would have done so over the past weekend, but on Friday morning I suffered a seizure (the first one in my 61-year-old life) and spent the weekend in a local hospital.

I'm feeling much better now and went back to work today, but I'll be conserving my energies for awhile longer before getting heavily back into blogging. The seizure was apparently due to medication I've been taking for my type 2 diabetes; it (or something) caused my blood sugar to suddenly plummet. Thanks be to God for my wife, Janet, who saw me seizing and called 911.

I'm getting spooked by these near-Quaker blogger misses (thinking of Richard M's "Not an Accident" post). I'm glad you're fine and I hope the medication gets worked out. Whew!

Thanks for taking the time to add this account. When will you know if in fact it was medication-related?

Glad you're OK. Have you learned more since? I am also 61 and also a Type 2 diabetic on medication. So it kind of strikes home. But I have never had a seizure.
