That's not cool, Jesus

I've had an interesting couple of days. My grandmother had a stroke a few days before Christmas, and is currently hospitalized in Switzerland. She seems to be recovering well, and I called her up on Christmas eve and had a long talk, but I was still a bit unnerved.

Then a few hours later my wife's medication reacted poorly with alcohol, and I thought I had lost her a couple of times before the Paramedics arrived. I'll spare you the details, but it was the worst thing I've ever been through, and I'm not easily unsettled. Fortunately she's had a complete recovery, though she can't remember much about it. I, on the other hand, remember it quite vividly.

These last few days I've felt like someone switched of my brain, so I'll stick to working on the archives for the time being, and when everything has settled I'll return to doing some actual updates. I love writing and I love running The Overseer, but some things in life are more important than miniature wargames :)



  1. Well, I think it would be rather strange (and creepy) if you could simply go ahead and dish out a bunch of wargaming articles.

    So speedy recovery to both your grandma and your wife!

    Cheers, Karnstein

  2. Yikes. I'm lad to hear the recoveries are going well. That's a pretty crummy weekend.

    Best wishes to you and your family.

  3. Sorry to hear that, but I'm glad they are both ok. Hope your new year will be better than your Christmas then :)

  4. Yeah, that's rough. Let's look forward to the new year and perhaps a lighter side of events to come.

  5. Here's to hoping you're right J.S.

    My mothers aunt and my cousin both got hospitalized as well (diabetic attack and food poisoning respectively), but somehow that mad it easier to handle.

    It's all non-fatal, the wife is back to normal, and life goes on. I'm looking forward to a year without scrubs though.
