Hello again.

First, the good news. Cindra is now an RN and has landed a full time position at Borgess hospital in Kalamazoo. She's been there four weeks and is liking it even though this early phase is tough going. At least now she only has five patients a day rather than the 30+ patients a day she used to have at the nursing home.

Secondly, I quit smoking 10 months ago. Also, I find I've gradually lost about 70 lbs over the last couple years. No wonder I swim in my shirts and my pants keep falling down. ha ha

The not so great news, I've just spent a week in the hospital. I'll spare you the gory details. The worst part is, we won't have insurance until December. I went to the hospital where my wife works. Because they are a non-profit Catholic hospital they are writing off most of the hospital bill and the rest they will let us pay in installments. Unfortunately the army of doctors that tended me aren't so generous. That bill will cripple us financially for years to come.

So, just when we saw the light at the end of the tunnel, fate blew up the exit, the train, pretty much the whole damned deal.

We are so used to this kind of news we are taking it in stride, either that or we're simply numb.

Outside of all this, things are great. ha ha

I hope you all are having better luck.
