Since "Summer of 2013"
Since I last blogged in 2013, a few things happened--mostly bad, I'm afraid. Forgive me; this post won't be so entertaining. Blogging sometimes acts as a "Dear Diary".
Then around Thanksgiving, my nephew, Drew, was suddenly sickened with a violent and painful condition. Admitted to a small local hospital, he remained undiagnosed despite two robotic consultations by experts in SanFrancisco. He was subsequently hospitalized several times for excruciating pain and remained burdened with debilitating fatigue and rapid and extreme weight loss. After conducting a huge battery of tests by a specialist in Sacramento, a presumed diagnosis was reached, though there had never been a patient at his age (33) with the diagnosis and he is somewhat of a medical mystery. Drew is now making plans to relocate to Sacramento be near his specialist and high-tech hospitals.
So, all this bad news fills in the times since my last Blog. Wish it was better but as they say "Nobody promised you a rose garden".
