Things have been quiet here on the old blog. Peaceful? Not on the internet! Rather pretty stagnant. There are lots of reasons, but one is above them all.
For about the past month my daughter Anna has been ill. She’s spent about eight nights in the hospital on three different occasions. The doctors have been practicing on her. I guess that’s what they call it when they don’t know what’s wrong and just run test after test. Some have been good and some…well…I’ll just be nice and stop there.
I won’t go into the specifics of her ailments or treatments for her sake. But she’s still sick, and we’re tired of it.
On Friday she had her tonsils out, and now she’s going through Popsicle therapy. We’re hoping and praying that everything is somehow connected to her bad tonsils and this is about to be over. So far, she’s not complained about anything much other than her throat hurting.
So what’s the business or life lesson in all of this? Quite simple: sick kids trump blogging.
Business has continued in the background. I can’t afford to pay the medical bills otherwise. But it’s been tough compartmentalizing between worry and work.
That’s what it takes sometimes to be a good dad. I’m thankful for a good wife and mother who doesn’t have to shift her focus. Anna will be better sooner because of it.
Regular blogs resuming soon…
