Merry Christmas to everybody! Its hard to believe that another year has passed. 2014 was generally a good year for the Chick family. We brought another dog into the family: a foster that somehow took permanent residence into our home. I wrote about our blind boy earlier this year. We played a lot of golf during a year where our area enjoyed some of the best summer weather in years. We enjoyed the time we had with each other and despite a hectic work schedule, managed to have a lot of “us” time: something very important to us.
As we look forward to 2015 we have to face a couple of challenges. Mr chick hurt his back in late september. We hoped it as just a strain of some sort but it proved to be a bit more involved. He herniated a disc at the base of his spine. All the traditional measures were profound failures, and we moved from “provider” to “patient”. Its been quite the journey experiencing many of the same frustrations my patients go thru trying to obtain medical care: The primary difference? I’d like to think we are behaving a bit better than many of my patients often do.
It may make an interesting perspective to blog about since I gave up writing about the business of pharmacy. Its already been nearly comedic in what we have been dealing with, if you all are interested 🙂
Blessings to all!
