Progress report & Health update
Bug fixes, performance improvements, and some health news.
20 November, 2022
Released version 0.3.7d. Another exciting bugfix patch.
Been tidying up issues with the recent cross-platform mobile launch. Also been dabbling with performance improvements for the upcoming Nintendo Switch version. Juggling priorities between all the platforms, while still paving the way for upcoming game modes, such as the Kitten Collect-a-thon.
Still battling autoimmune health issues, but some good news has come about at least:
But first, let's deal with Cushing's
During the recent weeks with this medicine downtime, I was referred to an endocrinologist to try and tackle some residual weight issues; hard to exercise when muscles hurt and I'm too fatigued to move very fast!
After running several blood tests, urine tests, and ultimately an MRI scan of my abdomen, my endocrinologist has diagnosed me with Cushing's Disease.
I am currently in contact with a surgeon. I will likely get keyhole surgery to remove this tumour in December 2022 or January 2023.
After surgery, I will need steroid medication for some time, as going cold turkey will not be good for my body! And my rheumatologist expects my immune system will ramp up even worse afterwards. But, we will then begin the biosimilar injections after the surgery once I recover enough, to suppress my immune system with greater force.
All in all, I do not know how much of each disease has been causing what. It's like a weird, perfect storm of ailments to slow me down, which slows down development speed. Pain inhibits the ability to think, as does fatigue and brain fog.
We shall see what improvements come about over the next couple of months.
Thanks for hanging in with me. Still going with this project, one day at a time!– Chris
