How do I begin. I’m not sure. In hindsight, since my last post (a year ago) the year was a real bummer. I had two surgeries totaling 10 hours in the operating room trying to close a wound but to no avail. Last year also saw the passing of my mother-in-law Jean. Needless to say, it was most trying for my wife Jayne who had to handle these events along with the postsurgical complications experienced by her sister Cathy, who recently had brain surgery at Johns Hopkins. Yes my friends, 2013 was definitely a year to hopefully be forgotten.
