Home for the Holidays (well, sort of...)

Well, I developed pneumonia and ended up in Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) in Boston (on Sunday, 12/23), and I spent about a week there before I was discharged (yesterday, 12/30). It is ~great~ to be home.

As for "Home for the Holidays", well, it was a one-out-of-two situation - I did indeed spend Christmas away from home, but, early last week, one of the BWH doctors stated that he was hopeful I'd be home before New Year's, and here I am, at home, on the morning of New Year's Eve, and that's a good thing, right?. (<smile>)

If I were asked whether my Holidays, therefore, were a glass-half-full or a glass-half-empty, I would answer that my glass was actually quite full. Not only did I have visitors in the hospital for Christmas (so, it isn't as if I had been alone), I also had the chance to win another epic battle against millions of the microbes that each and every day try to bring down each and every one of us. And, I'm home in time for New Year's. So, when all is said and done, what's not to like? (<smile>)

I will have more to say about a few of the more important (to me, anyway) aspects of my stay in Boston later, but I just wanted to post this today.

And I'd like to wish everyone a Happy (and Healthy) New Year !!!
