Birthday Thanks, Pneumonia

Sun Nov 4, 2018, 11:12 PM
Hey guys. I normally prefer to respond to birthday wishes individually, but I have been super under the weather for the last week or so because what I thought was a cold ended up being bronchitis that is bordering on pneumonia. I spent the night on my birthday in the ER because at one point the doctor said it WAS pneumonia but kept flip-flopping back to bronchitis mixed with asthma (which I have not had since I was a teen). He discharged me at like 5 am the next day and said he was treating the inflammation but if it does not improve by Monday I should see a doctor because it may really be pneumonia after all. I haven't slept in days because my coughing keeps me up at night... HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME. My health this year has been shot to pieces.

Soooo tomorrow if I do not magically stop coughing I am going to the doc's first thing in the morning.

Having a baby is harmful to your health! They should have warning labels on... genitalia?

Anyway, thanks to everyone who messaged me about my birthday. Sorry I am being an insincere butt and doing a mass response like this. One-Punch Man Butt Chin Boy [V1] 

I did start FaLLEN pages last month, but getting sick kinda halted that. It felt great sitting down at my desk and working on pages. My art was a little rusty but I was surprised how naturally it felt to measure out gutters and whatnot again. In my next post I'll let you guys know if I, like, died and if I didn't I'll post a photo of my workspace or something. I also still have sketchboards to post, but I am waiting for dA to fix the bugs that keep me from using thumbnail preps in my comments.

And though I may not get to play it (I have still only played Soulcalibur VI for a total of thirty minutes...) I asked my husband to pre-order the new Let's Go Eevee pokemon game. It looks like they finally got the CG right after two frustrating attempts (X/Y and Sun/Moon) and I am personally really happy it's moved to the Switch. I thought I was pretty much done with the franchise after Moon, but I love Eeveelutions enough that this might reel me back in. So yeah, my b-day present for my 35th birthday is a Pokemon game with a tiny pokeball accessory. At least I can play this with the family since they finally added a two-player option!

Am I crazy in thinking you mentioned you once had an instagram account? Or is that long gone?
OgawaBurukku Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2017  Professional General Artist
I have one! I haven't uploaded in a while, though... I should probably do that soon, haha. I need to see if they have an app for computer use and not just for smartphones, since I only have a smartphone for traveling abroad...…

If you have one let me know and I'll follow you :D
