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, namely I resolve to do my very best to stay OUT of this place:
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!
