"No. I'm not dead."

A few weeks ago I began to feel a bit run down and after a couple of days of having problems I went to the doctor. When I got there they discovered that some key things weren't functioning properly and that various other things weren't working quite the way they should either.

One $1100 ambulance ride later I was at the hospital. (We'll see what insurance picks up.)

After 4 days they released me with a host of drugs and doctor's orders to take it easy. Of course I overdid it when I got out the next week and spent my second week out of the hospital recovering from my first. *sigh*

I've tried to avoid the computer as much as possible the last few weeks. (My World of Warcraft guild probably thinks I've given up the game.) As the body has been on the mend so has my spirit and after a.) losing 8 pounds, b.) almost completely breaking my Coca-Cola habit and c.) going cold turkey on a lot of my electronic socialization I'm at a point of just wanting to ease back into things.

Jack you ask? Jack's great. He's growing so fast I can hardly believe it. Here's a few pictures:


That's from the last Steak and Shake stop on the way home from Kentucky. The hat style was all his work and I was just lucky enough to be there to take the picture.


From my follow up doctor's appointment yesterday. I took Jack for a rash that he's had that just won't go away. If you're wondering his shirt reads: "I have decided to place myself in charge" which may be the truest words ever written.


Tonight. He was just being funny so this is one of about 25 pictures I took. I like the look of utter "gobsmack" he's got. There's a caption there I just don't know what it is.

I'm leaving town for a few days tomorrow and will be back Tuesday. Regular blogging resumes then with a lot of back entries.

Thanks for hanging around and for all the kind emails you've sent over the last couple of weeks. They've made a difficult time much less painful.

Jim -

So sorry to hear you haven't been well. I hope you are back to your old self in no time as you need that energy to keep up with that quickly-growing Jack of yours.

Wouldn't it be fabulous if ambulance rides were either free or completely covered? Man, I suffered the year I had to take two of those.
