To all members playing CM scenarios with me
Good morning all,
This thread is for all those members that I am currently playing any of the Combat Mission scenarios we have been playing recently. Some of you are aware of what happened to me recently if you are also following my thread on the Battlefront forums.
Around noon of June 14th I had to call 911 because I was extremely short of breath and was having some significant chest pain. I was rushed to the hospital and was admitted. In a nutshell, I was suffering from an acute onset of pulmonary arrest (my oxygen saturations levels had dropped to less than 35%), acute systolic heart failure and SVT (very high heart rate), an acute kidney injury (probably caused by the lack of O2) and possibly suffered a TIA (mild stroke) or some other type of mild brain damage caused by the lack of O2. After waiting some 13 hours in the ER, I was finally moved to a room on a cardiac intensive care unit (CICU). I can only remember snippets of Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. I was discharged from the hospital the following Thursday, June 20. I am now on constant oxygen therapy and will be so for the rest of my life. So that is why I appeared to disappear into thin air.
For those of you that I am playing any Combat Mission scenario with, I will have to forfeit the win to you. I will not be able to play any further scenarios until I have built up my strength and also my concentration levels before I can start any new scenarios. I hate that this has happened but I really have no choice at this point. Fear not, I shall return to the digital battlefield but it may be a while before I do.
I hope all of you are well and if you live in the United States, Happy 4th of July.
The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.
