Well, I see it's been a long time since we blogged. October, in fact. My mother was in the hospital and rehab for a month in October 2009 (she's fine now) and the day before Thanksgiving (after being misdiagosed four times by four different doctors as having pneumonia), I was hospitalized in intensive care with multiple pulmonary emboli (blood clots in my lungs). I was fortunate to be alive and after spending 6 days in the hospital, was released and spent several more months recovery.
I am now back to work and getting healthier every day. Pieper the little black cat is doing well, as is my son, Steve. He is back to work after having faced a layoff in the Spring.
Promise to keep you all more up to date on our little escapades.
