Life’s Little Detours

The last you heard from me was a Christmas Eve Holiday wish.  After that I had big plans to post a recap of 2012 showing the highlights in photos and then segway into 2013 with post about my upcoming trips, goals and plans for the year and even take a spontaneous trip north for northern lights during my break from Adventures but, as the title of this blog says sometimes life (and our bodies) have other ideas…


To recap…I awoke Christmas morning, enjoyed opening presents with my mom and Frank and then sat down to breakfast.  That’s when the fun began.  I came down with that wretched flu that’s been going around and spent the next several days in bed with fever, chills and the rest of the crud that goes with the flu.  The flu cleared up but a nagging cough that I’d had for awhile lingered on so another trip to the Dr discovered that I had pneumonia as well (geeze, I never get sick).  So, back home and to bed with lot’s of, fluid, rest and antibiotics.  The drugs seemed to do their job and I have very little cough left but…

Meanwhile while all this was going on I also came home from Hawaii to find several messages from my Dr.  During my routine, yearly exams we discussed my general health and she ordered some extra tests which confirmed that I needed even more tests, more Dr appointments, and now surgery!

Not to bore you with all the details and, in fact, I was actually going to keep it all to myself and get back to work right away (this isn’t about photography after all) but one week of no blogging turned into two and then into three and the emails have been coming in wondering where I am, is everything ok, what’s going on…  So, bottom line is I “go under the knife” on Wed and am told to expect a full and speedy recovery!

I do hope to begin blogging soon and I am dedicated to getting back up to full speed quickly as I have a lot of wonderful Adventures awaiting me and many friends (new and old) to share them with.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts and emails!

See ya’ all back here real soon!
