A little thing that helped me during recovery

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. :D


  • good for you! my xbox has saved me on many sleepless nights and days where i needed distraction from the pain. whats your favorite game?

  • I had to laugh! I have a table here with 2 Nintendo DS with 23 games, a PSP, an IPOD and a laptop. I switch back and forth all day long to keep busy.

  • Not really sure, but I seem to play a lot of solitaire during TV commercials. =))

    I've also go this area called "Stamp" and you have to conquer a bunch of different games of all sorts. I'm into my 25th or so game, and I've never done the same one twice. I've learned all sorts of cool card games I never heard of. :P

    What do you play on your Xbox?
  • That's a boatload of gameage! =))
  • This should be a good excuse for me to get something now. Thanks for the idea! I'm sure my wife will love it too. :))( :^o

  • I'm having ALIF in January. I already went out and bought a PC game I want to play (Civilization, it's called). My kids will be "giving" it to me for Christmas, and I plan to play it on my laptop during recovery (assuming I'll be able to sit up and use the laptop.) Plus, we're giving my daughter a Wii, which I plan to borrow ... a lot.
