I’ll be back.

Sorry for the lack of updates over the last few days. As many of you are aware, I suffer from epilepsy. Most of the time, I have my condition under control. I usually have a degree of awareness when I’m about to have a seizure. But, sometimes they happen with no warning and it’s not always at the most opportune of times. On Saturday afternoon, while I was walking across my living room, I suffered a seizure and collapsed. Although I don’t know exactly what happened, it’s believed I struck my head on the leg of a table.
Although I haven’t yet been released from the hospital, I’m expected to make a full recovery. I admit that I’m quickly losing patience here, but the doctors and nurses are being totally awesome and doing a wonderful job with me. And, they’re letting me have my Xbox! So I might be able to try reviewing games soon. There’s a chance that the reviews might end up being shorter than normal, so I’m making requests that my readers or the community give me some ideas of Xbox Live Indie Games that are short in length, taking well under an hour to complete. Alternatively, I might review some stuff for iPhone, Android, Nintendo 3DS, and PSP until I’m released, depending on how difficult it is to play my Xbox here.
I expect to start doing some new game reviews soon. Until then, there are going to be one or two guest columns, starting in just a few minutes when I post a guest article by Ian Stocker, the creator of Escape Goat. To all those developers that have asked, yes, I want your columns. In fact, I kind of need them for a few days. It would be awesome. Just hit me up on Twitter and we can discuss it.
I want to thank everybody who has been offering their well wishes and prayers over the last few days. Someone up there must have heard you, because I’m expected to fully recover from this. Since the moment I started Indie Gamer Chick, I was accepted by the community you guys have made. It’s been touch and go at times, and I know not everyone likes me a whole lot, but the vast majority of you have gone out of your way to not only offer your support, but to treat me like a rock star. Thank you for that. I love you all, the Xbox Live Indie Game community, and I hope I’m back on the beat soon.

PS: I can still tell whether a game sucks or not so don’t think I’m going to go soft because of this. Offer you suggestions for shorter XBLIGs in the comments.
UPDATE: Not even a full hour after I posted this, they let me come home, provided that I carefully follow the doctor’s instructions and take it extremely easy. Yea! I’m home!
