It's been a long, long, long time, blog!

There are a lot of reasons for this, the most important of which is ... that I had a cerebral hemmorhage due to high blood pressure. This happened on March 5, and now, on May 13, I'm nearly all recovered!

There are still about two weeks that I don't remember (from the afternoon on March 5 to about two weeks after that), but I don't think I really need to remember those times, which were apparently quite painful. Ick.

I've got a new blog, which my sister started for me while I was in the hospital-

I post on Jeanny's Brain more frequently than I post here, but not all that often, as I haven't got any news to share!

I was in the hospital from March 5 to April 8, with a couple overnight breaks in between. Overnight breaks were so great! I got to leave the hospital and go back to my apartment for a night, sleeping in my own bed in my own clothes, rather than in a hospital bed in hospital clothes. Ah, the good ol' days...

After leaving the hospital, I came to Jeonju, my hometown. I stayed here for three weeks, going to the hospital here three times a week, until a week before my follow-up visit to the hospital in Seoul. The week before I was to go to the hospital in Seoul, I went up to Gunpo to my great-aunt's house. (In Jeonju, I've been staying at my paternal grandmother's.)

It's been so confusing and wonderful and exhausting and awesome, this strange experience to go from nothingness to full consciousness. I don't even have the words to describe the whole thing!

Anyway, I'm okay~ I'm fine~ I'm doing great now, actually! Thank you to my family and friends for everything, including their concern and love and prayers!
