It's been a rough weekend to say the least. I'm staying at my relative's house in San Jose (about an hour south of San Francisco) while I recover. I'll try to answer as many questions I can with this, but there are a lot of unknowns in the equation right now that will need to get sorted out in the coming weeks.
So basically what ended up happening was that my gallbladder decided to give up on life and just die. I've found out since it happened that this runs in my family. (thanks ancestors) If I had been alive 100 years ago I'd probably be dead right now. As it was, my gallbladder had actually started to get a bit gangrenes already before they removed it. They kept me in the hospital an extra day to make sure nothing had started spreading. Luckily it looks like everything worked out and I'll recover completely in a couple weeks.
Right now pretty much everything is painful, but getting less each day. I still had insurance from IGN so the cost shouldn't be too astronomical (hopefully). The big thing is that I probably won't be able to fly for a while, which will prevent me from getting to Korea to cast the OSL anytime soon. I'm still talking with them and nothing's off the table yet. Just have to kind of wait and see now.
So that's basically it. Don't know exactly where I'll end up in the next few weeks, but the most important thing is that I concentrate first on recovering. The doctors seemed to think it'll be fast since I'm a pretty healthy guy already. Hopefully they're right!
Btw, having a tube shoved into your nose all the way down to your stomach is about the least comfortable thing I've ever experienced. Thankfully I was able to immortalize the moment forever on Twitter thanks to my cousin, Vaughn, who was there with me.
In conclusion: No idea what's going to happen in the next few weeks, but I'm recovering quick and I'm sure my future still lies in esports!
