My bout with the flu turned out to be only a partial bout. It seemed as if my flu lasted significantly longer than Sarah's. I started out a day after her with the same symptoms, but hers had resolved itself within a day. I remained feverish and sick for several more days. I finally relented and went into the physician on Monday afternoon. It turns out that I had prostatitis. It is an internal bacterial infection that the doctor said likely had nothing to do with the flu. It accounts for the majority of the symptoms that I have had. I now get to spend two weeks on antibiotics and another prescription. It does explain why I have continued to feel under the weather even after the "flu" symptoms subsided. I have to acknowledge my co-worker who thought that might be what I had an strongly encourage me to get into the doctor. On the upside, I should be feeling much better when I get to visit Las Vegas with Sherrie. I am thinking that I may have had a low grade infection and the flu virus synergized with it to allow it to go full blown. I haven't felt top of my game for a couple of months and didn't know what was affecting me. Hopefully now, I will get back to full health.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
