The time has come for me to start reaching back into the development chambers after the sick leave. My fractured shoulder is still far from fully healed, but computer work seems doable, so here we come development year 2019. Slowly but steadily that is, as the priority remains in exercising the injured arm a lot to increase mobility - rather than to get it stiff from the office work.

Oh boy, little did I know how slowly fractured shoulders heal. In the original injury topic somebody made a remark that this might be my hardcore first hand research on injuries and recovery. :) Well, yes, going through this actually got me thinking of going through game's recovery rules in case of fractured joints. I've been of the arm sling for five weeks now but it will still take months before I can shoot a bow again, and raising the injured arm above the shoulder level is a feat I have been doing reliably only for a week or two. And there's no way I can do it with carrying load of more than few pounds, so any hard work that requires both arms is out of the question.  It also takes time to learn to move the arm 'normally' again, as the early pain didn't allow all the proper muscles to be used with some arm trajectories. It is easy to understand how easily deformed body postures are born.

But here I am, dedicated to work on the arm and the game as much as possible during the 2019.
I've gone through the swamp of e-mails lately and hopefully answered to everything urgent - but if you miss a reply, please do re-send your e-mail.
Getting back on the track with the forums will take a bit longer, but soon enough you can expect replies to pop up here and there.

Luckily my physiotherapist has also given me permission to ski, just guaranteed that I do not fall on the injured arm in any circumstances.
2019, here we come.

"It says here you have a broken left arm, shattered left knee and a broken right femur."
[turns over paper]
"Also some rib damage and a concussion. Mr. Maaranen, how did this happen?"
"I went skiing and didn't fall on my right arm."

Sami, it's great you are recovering well and could go out skiing  :)

Two questions:
1. What are the animal tracks?
2. What a beautiful setting, is that a cabin you use for fishing?

In my part of the world (Michigan) it is -16F (-27C) and very windy.
Many folks were told to stay home from work today.  :)

That's hare tracks.

It's not my property, but a simple sauna cottage of neighbours. Surely been used for fishing back in the day, as there are old tridents hanging on the outside walls.

Yeah, I've heard from the news that US seem to be freezing here and there. Take care, JEB.
