As you might already know by now, I was indeed hit with a very bad news few days ago. During a very routine medical check up, I was informed by the doctor that I was undergoing a retinal detachment in my left eye, and that I was few hours away from losing sight irreversibly. Only solution was to get emergency surgery, which I of course went through with. No matter how much we love DotA, some things will always come first. It went well, and that was the most important part.
This bad news felt like the sky collapsing on me, as you can imagine. Ever since I have been fighting every day to try to gain ground on the pain and the fatigue, hoping my recovery process would still allow me to attend TI. Unfortunately, as of now, I still can’t know if I will be back in a playing shape in time.
It is a huge blow for me and the team, of course, but over the years I have learnt to look at the positives of every challenge life throws at me.
The bright side here is that my determination and fire to get ready have never been as intense.
The bright side is that I know my team is stepping up big time, because they have my back.
The bright side is feeling your unconditional and loving support.
TI is coming, and that puts a smile on my face, whether or not I can attend.
Love you all, and see you soon hopefully 🙏😘.
