Weekly Photo Challenge: RESOLVED!

The first photo challenge of the Year 2013 is RESOLVED!

I don’t normally make resolutions, figuring it’s kind of a waste of energy. (Although I’d like it if you check out a sort-of-one on Touch2Touch.) Considering the way 2012 ran, though, I dunno. I think I’d better make at least ONE resolution, and this is it, namelyΒ I resolve to do my very best to stay OUT of this place:

Cooley Dick

This is our local hospital, Cooley Dickinson. It’s actually a pretty nice place, for a hospital. The staff is mostly pleasant and compassionate and competent. It’s only three minutes away (literally) from our house. And it’s nickname is Cooley Dick. You gotta love it!

But you also, if you’re us, want to stay out of it. 2012 began with me there in January having what I didn’t know was a heart attack. Frank had one procedure there in the fall, and when that failed, had another. And to sum up the year, Christmas Day found us there again (this is the view of the old hospital from that particular room in the new wing). Frank had the flu! (Of course he had a flu shot. No matter.) So however grateful we are that it’s been there for us, we’re both resolved: Stay out of Cooley Dick for 2013!

    If you’re going to make a resolution, staying well enough to stay out of a hospital is a good one. May you have all healthy days in the coming year!

    And may we have lots of visiting days, you and I!

    Boo, Cooley Dick! Let’s not go there!
    Cheers and good health. πŸ™‚

    At first I thought this was a mental hospital… πŸ™‚ I remember your heart attack last year very well; you gave us quite a scare. I’m sorry to hear Frank had to visit the place recently, too. 😦 I’m also just now recovering from the flu (no hospital visit required though, thankfully) – and I got a flu shot as well. I guess this year’s strain is a very robust one.

      Thanks, Stef —That was the first good laugh I’ve had in a week. Yes, Cooley Dick from some angles looks a lot like a mental hospital! It’s what inspired me to take this photo.
      Frank had the “glamour” of a hospital visit on Christmas Day, but I was the one with the dirty rotten cold that was utter misery, but without any grandeur or drama, and lasted eight days. Rats. I’m still coughing, but otherwise taking nourishment.
      I’m glad you’re over the flu. It is curious how many failures of the flu vaccine there seem to be this year.

I love comments! Thanks for coming by and visiting ---
