It Comes In Like A Lion

I think about this saying every March.  Growing up in the desert southwest this usually only applied to the wind, March was always windy.  Yesterday was the first day of Spring, and yet today while having lunch with the girls at school, the cafeteria ladies opened the blinds to show snow flurries.  HUH?  Are you kidding me?!  I have had all the grey, dreary, rainy/snowy days I can take.  

The weather hasn't been the only lion around here.  I have been absent from this space for some time now.  The reason is that my health has not been that great recently.  I have been to several doctors in the last month, had countless vials of blood drawn, a minor procedure, and one scary trip to urgent care one night.  I am doing better but am still awaiting another procedure and more follow ups to make sure the medicine is working.  I am of course hoping for the best outcomes.  On top of all the doctor appointments Hannah and I have had the flu.  She was down for a full 7 days before she went back to school and then it was my turn. I can honestly say that I can't remember ever being that sick.  I've had the flu before, even on a cross country road trip, but this was some bad mojo. I can say that being sick with a deployed husband and no immediate family around is something no one should have to experience. Thankfully today I am feeling much better.  

Hopefully the rest of the saying rings true... and goes out like a lamb.
