Tuesday, November 23

Hello everyone, another busy few weeks have gone by again. Though many attempts have been made to the hunting all have been met with failure. I finally got a site system worked out on the cross bow, I've put a pistol scope on the bow, and with its long eye relief I am able to use it in the gun mount if it is attached to my chair. Bad weather prevented me from hunting up until about a week and a half ago when some medical issues started occurring. The first was a really bad UTI that took two weeks in two different antibiotics to get rid of, only now it has cleared up. Last Saturday morning I woke up and could not catch my breath, we ended up calling 911 and going to the emergency room. Turns out I had a small patch of pneumonia in my right lung. They admitted me to the hospital for an overnight observation and so they could give me IV antibiotics. I feel great now and am on an oral antibiotic to make sure the pneumonia has cleared up. I'm going to give it a few days rest and then attempt to hunt after Thanksgiving, the dream is still alive.
Things around the house have been relatively normal. The finish my furnace installation, and now I'm not cold all the time. My dog Shilah has gotten big, she now weighs about 25 pounds. She's learning her name but not very quickly, she knows right from wrong but still tries to get away with anything she can to. You've got to love puppies.
The whole family is coming in this Thanksgiving. It will be nice to see them all at one time.
