Well this is where the fun stopped for me. On Christmas Eve night I became violently ill. I will spare you the details. It involved a trip to the emergency room and days of recovery.
I would like to say that the gift of family and the true Christmas spirit was displayed by Jim. He was very helpful and kind in getting me to the emergency room and getting me back to Mike’s house. He had to make multiple trips to the hospital to get everything sorted out all late at night and on Christmas Eve. Jim was my Christmas angel.
Janet was a real trooper help to take care of my while all the Christmas plans were destroyed. We didn’t get to go to David and Katie’s house, which was a disappointment to me and to all. I feel bad that I cause the Christmas plans to not happen.
It took a few days for me to be able to ride in the car to make the trip back to Atlanta. My sickness also killed me getting to see my family again for friends in Atlanta.
Through all of this Janet was by my side and taking care of me. That is real love.
We went to a Christmas walk and talent show in Gardiner. One person made a reference that it was like being in a Hallmark Christmas special. The entire town was out. It was cold but everyone was walking around checking out the shops and crafts in the community center. The even had a ski repair at the community center. We went to the talent show last. It was amazing how much talent people had.
