This week saw the end of my treatment. No more Electro Convulsive Treatments. No more trips to the hospital to have a current run through my head in the vain hope that it will set me straight. It also means, hopefully, an end to the annoying memory losses I have been experiencing the past couple of weeks. It also, hopefully, means I can just move on with my life and go back to living it.
Its not all doom and gloom however, this week my youngest daughter was dedicated to the Lord, and my oldest son was baptised. So both of those events are rating pretty highly on my calendar.
I was able to participate in tabletop gaming of both the board game and Warhammer variant. The board game variety was Lords of Waterdeep with my wife and was an enjoyable time had by all. And the other involved large and expensive pieces of plastic in a game called Warhammer 40,000 and was enjoyed with the lovely boys and girls over at Hammer and Anvil Gaming. I just have to get to the end of the whacked out season that is the University calendar, then I can commence work on the five new knights, and one work in progress knight that I have surrounding me at present.
As time goes on, I am left with thoughts of the good times shared amongst friends and family. I am reminded about the not so good times, the times that found me in a recovery ward following ECT. But nevertheless the good have severely outweighed the bad. And I hope to keep the scales tipping that way.
As I write this post my son is prepping for his missions trip to Vanuatu. I am so immensely proud of him undertaking this trip. Every time I turn around, he grows up just a little bit more. I wish him all the very best on his endeavours to Vanuatu, and I pray that the island is kind to him this journey.
In the mean time, I will enjoy the time with his sisters, my daughters, who continue to grown up each and every day. Every time I turn around they are bigger, smarter, funnier, and achieving more than the previous. I love you, my girls.
I will keep the message this week short and sweet. We are still looking for the designer of the Maintain the Rage logo. Head over to our competition page for all the details.
