Our Energizer Bunny

I kid you not, Mike TRULY is our Energizer Bunny. He keeps going and going and going...........

We would find ourselves saying that after each hospitalization, so for Christmas, we decided to get Mike a shirt that expressed that thought.

My sister and her family came in from Pennsylvania today and, as always, we had a great time. We don't get to see them that often, so when we do, we find ourselves laughing until it hurts. They will be here until Sunday and it will be a nice change. We are thankful they came, considering that my brother-in-law (the same one that had bypass surgery last year) has bronchitis. My sister had to take him to the ER on Christmas afternoon because he felt really crummy and couldn't wait until Monday to go to the doctor. At least now he's been on antibiotic for a full day, so we hope he's feeling better by tomorrow. He was a sport today and trudged through the festivities like a champ.
The kids got their report cards today and were VERY pleased that they did well on their finals. They continue to amaze me, considering the fact that they had their finals in the middle of Mike's hospitalization. They studied at the hospital when they had time, then at night when we got home.

Today was a good day.
P.S. We were thrilled to finally get Mike's repaired glasses! He is no longer seeing through duct tape!

Merry Christmas to you all! Sorry I did not get to say it on Christmas day, but we have some family visiting and we postponed our Christmas celebration to today (26th). Your family is in our prayers.
Take care and God bless,
