Merry Christmas! I Should be Dead!

3 01 2014

Well, three weeks ago, I began my vacation and three weeks ago, I noticed the symptoms of an on-coming cold. I’ve been sick ever since. Three days ago my doctor confirmed I have a cold but he also diagnosed a sinus infection that would likely be deadly to any normal man (my words not his). The worst thing about this entire ordeal has been a terrible and persistent, head-pounding cough. For that, I have been taking medication with codeine.  The codeine effectively controls the cough, gives me a slight buzz and makes me realize, for a few hours at least, how good it feels to feel good. The bad thing is that my symptoms, including the cough, are improving. I don’t know which I’ll miss more… my codeine or the TLC I got from my wife (who by the way is now sick).

So, as I return to normal health let me say, I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and I wish you a happy and prosperous 2014! Here are a few pictures from our family Christmas gathering. The lone non-Christmas picture is our middle son and daughter-in-law, Brooke. Brooke shot most of the pictures so naturally, she wound up not being in any of the them. They’re both middle children so they’re accustomed to being left out.
