Good morning everyone! Checking in with my latest progress report. Met with the neurosurgeon the other other day. They say my skull fracture is healing and no sign of blood or bleeding which is great. Now they want me to met with a brain specialist. In the mean time I am scheduled to go into speach therapy and then physical therapy.
I am still getting head achs and dizzy spells and at times am light headed. Walking is unevan as I start to lose my balance or get unsteady and need help. Sleeping is difficult as I wake after a few hours and cannot get back to sleep. But I guess this is progress and its slow.
What am I doing to get through the day? Lots of Audible books of course. These are great as you can sit back and just enjoy. I am still limited in the time I can spend on a screen. Reading with print is ok, but screen time (computers, Kindle and tv ) has to be limited as after an period of time I get really bad head aches. This is letting me know I have to rest my brain. I have tried to paint some miniatures but I am having a difficult time doing that as my hand and eye coordination if off. So its more frustrating then helping.
I have been playing my map games from Command post Games/Pub Battles. These take about an hour from set up to conclusions and really divert my attention. I get to play a game and have fun while doing so.
Lastly, I have been thinking of some miniatures wargames ideas and rereading rule sets. I hope to set up and play a small table top game with my figures soon. That would be fun! One scenario I have been thinking of is how to do the War of 1812 battle of Stones Creek. This was a lopsided battle where a much smaller British force defeated a much larger American force. I think I may have come up with a way. We shall see.
Again thank you all for the kind words and comments sent here. I appreciate them and they do cheer me up greatly during those black dog days. Thank you!
