I flew to see my grandchildren for Christmas and the whole family was sick and had to be hospitalized with flu and pneumonia. Yours truly is now home recovering as well. I tell you this, not for sympathy, but for the joyful fact that my soon to be born grandson and mother are doing well. I want to thank the staff at the hospital for working hard to guard them and keep them safe.
And a special salute to my son who grabbed the reins and served as chief cook, bottle washer and laundry sanitizer. It was his first free time from military life in forever and he stepped up like a gentleman and took care of everything.
I urge everyone to keep drinking fluids, taking vitamins and eating lots of veggies. It’s petulant when it hits and lasts for days. Wishing all the joy of the upcoming new year.
