Dodging Bullets Like Neo

Sorry it’s been awhile, but I did finally make it out of the hospital. The pneumonia kicked my butt pretty hard but I’ll survive. I had a home health care nurse come for the following two weeks to give me intravenous antibiotics every afternoon. That didn’t help with my work schedule, but everything worked out okay. So to say the least, I’m feeling pretty well. I can’t say I’m out of the woods just yet because I know that my immune system is still shaky. I’m still on steroids for my lungs which doesn’t help because they keep my immune system suppressed. I’ve been back to work full time for a few weeks and it feels great. I’ve even started working out again but I’ve been taking it easy; no worries.

Oh, did I forget to mention that I turn 30 today? Bummer huh? Oh well, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. My 29th year was a tough one, one that I won’t be forgetting anytime too soon. But it taught me some big lessons and hopefully made me a better man. It’s a beautiful day outside so I have that as a nice present. I’m going to place my bets and say that this year may be slightly better than last year, but hey I’m not out of the woods just yet.

Thank you everyone for all of your prayers, your cards, and you support.

My Day with Lord Stanley

Lord-Stanleys-Cup-webThat title should read, “My 5 seconds with the Stanley Cup.” What really matters is that I got to touch it! That’s what she said. Our office got to host Lord Stanley for three hours yesterday afternoon because of our relationship with the Penguins. We didn’t get to meet any players, just Stan the Man, but it was still pretty cool. We got a few group shots from a photographer and then quickly got pushed out of the way for the next group. I can’t say it’s a memory that will last forever because, well it was so quick we barely realized it happened. However it was an awesome year to be a Pittsburgh sports fan and this was a good way to cap it off.

I quickly used some hand sanitizer.

The end.
