A groundhog lives under my neighbor’s shed. He hibernates all winter and come spring he sticks his nose out. He is a pest that cannot be stopped. But that is another story.

I feel like that groundhog just sticking my nose out after a long hibernation. Most of you know I had a bout of serious chronic migraine and was under the care of a neurologist for some time. The medicine he prescribed stopped my creativity as well as my ability to express myself verbally. That said that is one reason I have not be actively writing blogs or anything else for some time.

Thankfully the headaches are better to the extent I can stop the medicine and rely on over the counter meds.

January 2013 and these past months have been a roller coaster ride. I broke my wrist and had to have surgery. A week later my first great grandson was born. He contracted pneumonia and was in NICU for several days. Shortly after his birth, I contracted pneumonia. The Doctor gave me antibiotics which turned out I was allergic too. After much hassle, he prescribed another antibiotic which I also proved to be allergic too. All this a trying to care for myself with one hand.

Of course a broken anything requires therapy. Soooo I’ve been going to therapy for the past 4 weeks.

The good news is Great grandson is healthy and sweet, the hand/wrist problem is getting better. At least I can type again. Daughter received her Master of Science Degree in Nursing Education. (She was doing all the studying while taking care of me and new momma and baby.) And I’ve begun to feel the need to put some thoughts down on paper. I decided a new entry to the blog was a good place to start. Hopefully, my good intentions will result in more frequent and timely blog posts.
