Camden on hold.

To fellow followers of my blog, I have to advise that Camden is on hold at least for the next 8 weeks.
Last Thursday week while preparing breakfast, I said to my wife that I didn't feel well, and I don't remember anything else until I came too in the ambulance. Apparently I collapsed and I hit my head on the floor causing a whip lash to the neck. I also had a bleed to the brain. I was admitted to hospital for examination and the hospital was in contact with John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle re flying me down for surgery to remove the blood clot on the right hand side of the brain. The hospital was not sure weather I had the bleed causing the blackout or it happened as a result of the fall. I was released on the Sunday for MRI scan on the Monday, and was readmitted to Hospital the next day (Tuesday). 
I am home now and under medical supervision by my local GP. I cannot bend my head forward to look down as I get light headed and everything begins spinning. Physio is next Thursday for the whiplash. 
I will advise my situation as it progresses.
Cheers for now.

    1. Thanks for your good wishes and will strive for a speedy recovery, I feel down that I can't concentrate on doing things, although it's early days yet. Dr said 8 weeks at least . Jim.

    Take it very easy mate, health is more important than the hobby.

    Of course you can always think about what you want to do next. ;-)
