As summer rolls around, Mike is feeling worse. It’s a real bummer. I never really knew that chronically ill people have seasons. But they do and he does. The first 4 years of our marriage, Mike was in the hospital for some part of July (the entire month the last time). It seems to be the time of year when everything catches up to him and he just needs a bit of a recharge. Last year, he made it through July without going to the hospital. In fact, he made it the whole year! (Thanks to God, Mayo, and the wonder drug!)
All this to say, Mike feels like poo. And I hate it. I wish I could fix it. He’s so stellar though. Still working lots and being awesome with his web designing. He’s a tough cookie, that Mike.
