Skipping September

I’m happy to be writing this blog post in October and backdating it. September wasn’t the greatest time. It’s been a year now since my cousin Joey was lost at sea, and from mid-September til the end, my thoughts have been with my family back home in St. Lewis, and of my own memories of Joey.

Here’s some photos of life from September. Better days ahead, as they say.

Heart Songs

I’ve recently had a scary incident with hypertension. After a 10-hour hospital visit, my doctor put me on two types of blood pressure medication to get my symptoms under control. It was a really scary day. Scary enough that I’ve replaced bacon with cheerios, and all beverages with water.

(I mean there are more changes, just trying to interject some humor)

I took 4 days off of work and went to St. Lewis to see my family. I was really in need of some downtime. I could joke and say that visiting my family didn’t help much with the blood pressure… lol… because it didn’t… but truly, it was nice to be with mom and dad for a while. I live within a 6-hour drive of them, pending road conditions, but it seems like I never get to see them.

Here are some pics from my visit.

Be well;
