    Just A Little Personal Notice

    Hi Everybody,

    As some of you may be aware, I am going in for Bariatric Surgery (in particular a Sleeve Gastrectomy) this Friday (February 22nd, 2019). I am doing this as a direct consequence of my underlying Polycystic Kidney Disease - my kidneys are down to less then 10% of function and so, in an effort to make myself eligible for a transplant, I need to loose some 50kg / 100lbs, and my doctors all say this is the only practical way. If all goes well I sound be released from hospital the following Wednesday (February 27th) and be "fully" recovered some 5-6 weeks after that - assuming the kidneys don't "pack it in" in the meantime - and then we can start considering donors for a transplant.

    The reason I'm telling you all this is not to garner sympathy, but to say to anyone who lives in Sydney (Australia) or who may be traveling there over the dates mentioned above: I'll be in the Royal North Shore Hospital at St. Leonards (I don't know which room - ask at the front desk ), so feel free to drop in and say "Hi" - my family doesn't live near-by so I'll probably be bored out of my skull and I doubt they'll let me near my laptop or let me use the wifi if they do.

    I'll also say "Thanks" in advance to all the well-wishers and all my friends here on the FG Forums - I'll try to let someone know how things go so they can relay the info. I hope to be back on these boards in a week or so, but I'm going to let my healing take precedent. So that also means no updates / bug fixes / whatever to any of the DOEs, the DOR(s), the 13th Age Ruleset, or anything else people may be waiting on - sorry, you'll just have to be patient.

    Wish me luck, and I'll see everyone as soon as I can.

    Good luck Dulux. Sorry I'm a bit far away from Aussie land otherwise I'd drop in.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list

    As a fellow sufferer of PKD who has been on dialysis for the last 7 years, I wish you total success in your endeavor! Losing is hard, I hope the sleeve works for you.
