That's me! I'm back now...sort of. I contracted pneumonia a few days before Christmas and spent Christmas Day in the ICU. Fun times.... not! Fortunately, I don't remember much of that. I was moved to a regular room several days later, and 4 days ago moved to a Rehab Center where two persistent women are shaming me into getting my strength back so I can come back home. I'm actually at home right now, since Ron M. drove me here so I could take a beautiful hot shower and do my laundry. It feels great to be away from the "institution" for a day. I hope to be back home permanently in a week or so.
My daughter Sarah flew here from Chicago and spent a week at my bedside, which pretty much ruined her Christmas, too. I'm such a bother! :-) Ron M. has been an angel, visiting every day, running errands for me, bringing me food (rehab food inedible!) and watching over my house. Other friends have been spectacular, too. (Brad and LaSandra - thank you for the much needed book light, Bruce - thanks so much for the chocolates which have been a huge treat each day.) So, I guess in the long run, all is well. I'll be back to regular blogging as soon as I'm home and in front of my own computer again. Until then, please try not to get pneumonia. It's not fun!
