Tough questions.

First, I cannot imagine anything that would prevent me from 
being part of the SCA. Not fighting, OK. Not marshalling, OK.
Not Chirurgeoning, well it could happen. But most of the 
SCA is the extended family it creates. I could be in an iron 
lung and people would come by to see me and the SCA would still 
be part of me. 

On the other hand, I would not be crushed if I could not be part 
of the SCA. I would find something else to engage my mind and 
body (though it might not be as good a fit as the SCA). I am 
not capable of not having such a focus for my energies. The 
SCA succeeded the Boy Scouts, for instance.

Depending on what I am still able to do after the calamity above
and what I could expect to do later, I would read, work on A&S, 
redo my armor, and keep up with my friends. I guess the real 
question here is "What free time?".
