It's been harder for him to speak correctly today, mixing his words a lot of aphasia, but he dealt with it fairly well. I was not as patient as I needed to be through the whole day, but getting our neighbours to quiet down helped.

... I say this as the same person as well who still has some 40K mini's to assemble and paint. I spend my time the best I can, making him smile and laugh and forget the pain.
