But recently I've been sick (for about 2 months now), and I'm still sick. I spent 4 days in the hospital, and the doc said it was Walking Pneumonia, and a bit of this and that. He couldn't tell me why I was coughing so bad I would pass out. I did my own research, and discovered that what was happening was that there was so much mucus built up in my chest that when I'd try to cough it up it would cuy off the air flow in my throat and sinuses, and my body would panic (which I first thought were seizures), then I'd pass out. Friends tell me I go out for only a few seconds, but it could be days the way it feels. Basically, I would drown, and I'd do this about 6 or 7 times a day.. Scary stuff!!!
But I thought I was getting better. Almost 2 weeks without coughing and passing out. But last night my throat starting hurting, and I coughed and passed out about 3 times. Oh, well.
In the midst of being sick, my life was going wonderful. I had a beautiful woman by my side who treated me wonderfully, and whose parents would've been the greatest in-laws. But she walked away. I still am not sure I understand the reasons.
I tried to stay busy, though.
I've been working with author Alan Dale on a zombie series that is one of the most original ideas to surface in the genre. DNA: Dead Nation's Army, and you can find it here.. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008GXJKA4
Still doing work for my good friend, author Brian Hodge as well..
And I'm still working on dozens of other projects, including my book Crossroads: The Art of James R. Powell.
I hope everyone is doing well.
