Jeff is Back Home --   

Well after my colon cancer surgery and 20 days in hospital I am finally once again home. 

I do wish to thank all of those who prayed, sent healing energy or just good wishes . . . all such are gratefully received.

I can now look forward to a period of slow recovery . . . I am very weak after this ordeal and sleep is never far off.  I have, by the way, lost over 50 lbs (23 Kg) since earlier this year . . . but I really do not recommend cancer as a diet plan.  Trust me on this.

Of course during the long hours of lying in a hospital bed, I did think a lot about what I want to do "toy soldier"-wise . . . but more of that later; I hear my bed calling me for more rest.

And, believe it or not, the simple act of eating is hard work.

Good to see you back at home and on the web. The troops will patiently wait on you so do not wear yourself out. Worse comes to worse maybe you could monitor a game online.

Dear Jeff,

Continue to get well. Recovery can be slow - the trick is to stay patient and not rush back to your old life. The nice thing about our hobby is that it offers many things - reading, painting, planning - that you can do in a calm environment that will lift your spirits and aid the recovery cycle. Be well.
