Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
@Fiddlerman I am sorry to hear about your girl. I am super relieved that she is okay and recovering. So sad about her gigs, this time of year that really bites. Wishing her a speedy recovery. I know you all must have been so very very worried.
No worries on the project. Take care.

Sorry to hear about your daughter's hospitalization. It would be that pesky organ that we don't really need. At least it got diagnosed in time. Here's to hoping she recovers more quickly than expected and is back on her feet in record time! Maybe you can put your daughter in the video as a cameo, if she didn't play one of the parts, that is.
I planned on doing the video this weekend but our daughter was very sick. We drove her to the hospital and was there until 4 AM on Saturday night. Yesterday, my wife drove her to the urgent care and the doctor sent her to the emergency on an ambulance so I drove straight to the hospital. Turns out that she had appendicitis and it was removed late last night. The operation was successful but she is a bit sad right now. She has 9 gigs booked this week and she is very hungry, LOL.
They won't let her eat just yet. Tough week...
In any case, please be patient with the project.
Wow man, Appendicitis is bad. Thankfully she is ok. I had it 4-ish years ago and I stood a hellish month on the hospital, but thankfully I'll never have it again.
Best wishes for her.
Thanks everyone. Won't be long now with the project. I just need to record MY video. LOL
I skipped it last time though I have already done audio on all 4 parts for myself. The mix is ready for the sum of everyone and videos are converted and ready to paste.
augustoad - Why did it take a month for your recovery? Did yours burst?
@Fiddlerman ,I felt horrible, I couldn't eat for the first 2 weeks and when I did I puked a lot. Basically survived the first 3 weeks on water and medication and when I did managed to eat it was in very small portions. Once I got out of the hospital I had a terrible fever and could barely even walk, but I was eating well enough and from that point onwards it was all ok, except I had to walk with a sort of plastic bag strapped to me to drain the liquids that were still there. Yuck. I got over 10KG (22 pounds) thinner.
However, my appendicix was VERY close from bursting (the doctors said that if we were 10min late it would have bursted). If your daughter's appendix wasn't close from bursting, she'll probably be ok way faster than I did. Best regards.
Actually the doctor also said that hers was close to rupturing. Fortunately they were able to do it Laparoscopically.
She is actually in a lot of pain right now. I expected her to recover quicker. I feel bad for her and wish I could take her pain....
She is refusing to take any pain medication though. Maybe she should.
@Fiddlerman Distraction, Distraction, Distraction! I know exactly how that is! I hate taking pain medication and I have to fight pain every day thanks to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome!
Audio & visual distractions are the best methods, although meditation helps too. Get her mind working on something. Problem solving puzzles, figuring out new music, writing in a journal or any type of creative writing. When she has something else to focus on other than the pain, the pain tends to melt away. You really do forget about how bad it is!
Try to get her to focus on the different sites and sounds around her and have her describe them in detail. Then focus on those same triggers from fun memories of things like vacations.
Distraction is the key. It has helped me get through some of my worst days!
