Thank you very much, dear SCLS Community members, for your good wishes and prayers.
I came home last week after 3 weeks of hospitalization, having barely survived a 3rd life- and limb-threatening episode of SCLS -- one which, all kinds of medications notwithstanding, was as deadly serious as my first (Nov. 2005) and second (April 2007) episodes.
Fortunately, besides surviving, it seems that I have no permanent, additional damage to function in arms or legs, thanks to prompt and extensive fasciotomies from top to bottom. Moreover, all my vital organs are still OK, even though my lungs and kidneys suffered for a while.
I'm now regaining my strength and am able to walk again slowly (having "graduated" from the wheelchair with which I came home and then the walker), and my hands and fingers are also starting to move more freely. (I'm typing this with just 2 fingers, because the others are still rather stiff.)
In a couple of weeks, I will be opening a new Discussion Forum topic entitled "The Lessons I Have Learned." Stay tuned!
