Year End 2006

Events in this post occurred in November and December of 2006.

Kathi had her parathyroid surgery on November 1, 2006 and I took her home the next afternoon, which was on a Thursday. Sure enough, as expected the surgery sent her hormones into a tailspin. She says the few weeks following surgery were a blur to her and I just stayed close by and tried to be supportive. We were assuming the surgery was a success, since her calcium level was back to normal by the end of November.

We were in no hurry to leave Green Caye in Dickinson, so we just hovered while Kathi was getting back to normal and enjoying the end of year holidays with family.

December 22, 2006 was a Friday and I had minor surgery just before Christmas day which was the following Monday. Dr. Somers removed a benign cyst from behind my right ear. It was a little sensitive for a few days, but minor compared to the recovery Kathi was experiencing.

Our oldest son, AJ was going to have Christmas in San Francisco and he was excited to be Christmas shopping with the money we sent him for Christmas. Our youngest son, Christopher was flying in to Hobby airport from Twentynine Palms, CA as a civilian – he and the Marines were parting after his four-year enlistment. We were anxious to see him.

Christopher arrived and he was glad to be home. He stayed with us in our RV for a few days while he got re-oriented to life outside the Marine Corps. We had a quiet Christmas at home and Christopher spent Christmas with his girlfriend.

December 27th, Christopher went for an interview at Suncoast for a dispatcher job. He went to work the next day. He seemed to really like the people and the work. Next he needed a place to live. We took him apartment shopping and he knew exactly where he wanted to be. He signed a lease for an apartment in Pasadena.

Kathi and I discussed our travels and decided we had no reason to return to southern California, since Christopher was no longer stationed there. We would still visit AJ in San Francisco. Visiting California was expensive.

So long 2006. Happy New Year 2007.
