    Back in March, my urologist insisted on a totally unnecessary prostate biopsy which resulted in an e. coli infection requiring two hospitalizations and weeks of home infusions. Then in June, I suffered a Type VI tibial plateau fracture of my right leg - again, two hospitalizations followed by extensive rehab. Then this month, my wife spent 18 days in the hospital near death without a definite diagnosis.

    And for the first time in ten years, no Omegas (new or pre-owned) added to the collection.

    So 2012 was not a good year.

    But I'm walking again, my wife is home and improving each day, and this Thursday the new Omega arrives.

    Indications are that 2013 will be better at our house.

    I pray it will be better at yours also.

    I sincerely hope that 2013 sees you Healthy (most importantly), Happy and Prosperous. It really is true that health issues can take much pleasure out of even the good things in life.

    Seems that 2012 was a difficult year for many. And I have heard this from many people this past week. Had some very trying times myself, and I kept going by having a positive attitude. A line by Meryl Streep from a movie I saw this past year really helped me a lot: "You have to learn to love what you have, instead of yearning for something that you do not or cannot have." In all honesty, there is not much I yearn for that I cannot do without, but learning to appreciate the life that I do have, and the wonderful people I have around me has helped me immeasurably.

    :cheers: To a Healthy, Happy & Prosperous 2013 for all of us (a new watch wouldn't hurt either :rocker:)
