Here Is The Story...

If it is anything that I think is silly it is a blog without current entries...Well here is my story or explanation...I started the GH blog, got it up and running. I made a real effort to make certain that we didn't really promote it until I felt that I had some good, meaty stuff to post. Well as many of our regulars & friends know I got sick. I was ill for awhile before I ended up in the emergency room. Long story made short I ended up requiring surgery, was out of the hospital for a couple of days and then required a second emergency a nasty infection which required even more time in the hospital and now I am finally out and feel certain that I am on the up swing. All the while I felt guilty that I hadn't worked on the blog but, ultimately thought that nobody really knew about it. WRONG! I have had several people say that they have checked out the blog and they asked when I was going to update it. Even my Surgeon and some of my wonderful Nurses and Nurse Techs in the hospital said that they had gone looking for our website and found the blog. Gosh, am I ever embarrassed. I promise to do better. I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to my partner Shawn, Kelli, Rebecca and Sharon who had to work extra hard at GH in my absence. To all of you who sent so many well-wishes, uplifting cards, flowers and balloons thank you so very much you have no idea how much it meant to me. Finally, to my surgeon Dr. Jordan (who has already visited our store and fussed at me for not having our website up), and all of my Nurses and Nurse Techs at Wellstar Kennestone 5th floor I offer my most sincere thanks and appreciation for the OUTSTANDING care that you gave me. You are very special folks and I thank God for compassionate people like you who work so hard to provide the best care for people in need. Please come to Blue Ridge and stop in and see us!
It may be a little longer before I am back in the store but just know that I am always there in spirit (just ask Shawn and Kelli), and I am looking forward to the time when I am back in there on the weekends seeing everyone. Please check back for more entries in the near future...heck we may even get our website up too. :)
