I just wanted to share with you a little something that my husband bought me for my recovery - a Nintendo DS.
Seriously, though, he bought me a game with it that has all kinds of card games, board games, solitare, darts, etc. Through the times when I was mostly stuck in my recliner, I could just pick up this little thing and exercise my mind for a while (especially since my body didn't want to do anything!).
Just thought I'd let you know.
