One Lost Year

A year ago today (Febuary 1, 2012) I started hemorrhaging and was transported to hospital.  What followed were hospital stays, procedures, tests, a cancer diagnosis, radiation, surgery, long hospital stay and six months of chemotherapy.

I am now in my last week of chemo and hopefully that will end this "lost year". 

Not surprisingly there hasn't been any space for gaming . . . well until the last couple of months when I was able to "solo" a couple of games with the help of long-distance decisions by Ross Macfarlane and David Murdock.

And, yes, I know that the third battle in the Alpian Wars mini-campaign is overdue . . . but the fatigue from the chemo is very debilitating.  Hopefully once the chemo is over next week I will be able to regain some of my strength and stamina . . . although it will take some time I'm told.

Anyway, my "lost year" is now over and with luck I will be able to get back onto the table top before too much longer.

May you recover completely and live a thousand years in good health! My wife is still recovering from a double mastectomy and it has been more than a year in care. We are optimistic and it sounds like you are as well.
Getting back to the table, pushing lead and rolling dice are very nice things for which to look forward.
Keep a good thought!
Curmudgeonly yours,
Jerry

My dear friend, no year is a lost year. Some years are just a hell of a lot more difficult. Just keep rolling the dice...

Don't look back; look forward at how much more gaming you'll be able to do! And blog about, which I enjoy tremendously.
