Happy New Year!

2013 was a very tough year for many people on my friends' list, and I'm hoping 2014 is much better.

Ours was not too bad, though it left a nasty 'present'- I had HalfshellHusband call Kaiser last night about his shortness of breath and strained breathing. I knew they'd probably drag him into the ER, but when he's sounded like that before he's had pneumonia, and it takes hold very quickly (the day before was when I'd first noticed it). He was at the ER for hours, having all sorts of tests run, and pneumonia would have been a less worrisome diagnosis than the one he got: mild congestive heart failure. :( We're not sure how or why that happened, or when it might have started, but there will be lots of followup tomorrow.

Hope your New Year's Even was better than that!
