Merry Christmas

Greetings one and all,
                                    A very merry and safe Christmas and New Year to you and yours. May the ruleset you need be printed soon (in 2018) and the figures extruded to match and may your dice never roll under the bookcase.

Screech to a halt

Hi all,
          You may have wondered what has been going on, or rather, NOT been going on since there has been a bit of a gap since I last posted on here. Well, I had a heart attack on the 15th October while walking to work, was whisked into the hospital and had to have a triple heart bypass on 31st October. Since then I have been on the road to recovery. As you can imagine, this has knocked me down a bit, but I am gradually regaining my strength.

It gets worse.

          At least I was until my leg got infected and I had to go back to the hospital for another week, to have the infected part carved out of my leg. I was finally discharged with a vacuum pump stuck on my leg, which would not charge up the next day. I went off to another hospital to get a fresh unit, that unit failed the same evening! I had to get a district nurse out to change the dressing, otherwise, it can be a breeding ground for germs within a few hours. I try to stay positive, but this is pushing it. At this rate, I am not going to see the latest Star Wars epic.

         Finally, I get a vac pack that works fine and my leg goes into regeneration mode, five weeks later, my wound has partially filled up with new skin and its time for my hand sized skin graft to be shaved off my thigh and slapped skillfully on to my lower leg, leaving a giant scab to form on the top part. The Vac pack was added for the final treatment.
          I did get to see the latest Star Wars film after one of my hospital visits, for my reaction to it, check out my later post.

         I am not sure when this site will get back to normal, as I have a lot of stuff to catch up with and organize things, but at least now you know what the hold up is.

I had planned to go to the West Midlands Alumwell Show, but the bad weather prevented me from doing so.

 I hope to return to the Battle Circle once fitness permits.

Regards all, happy gaming,
