Things DO come in threes!

My mom used to say that many things come in threes: Three green lights in a row, three phone calls, three bills at a time, and in my (Rob) case, it's three goofy health challenges.

   The latest happened Monday while I was still recovering from sinus surgery and days of bad asthma attacks. I was on a teleconference and grabbed a fiber bar (at our age, they're necessary after all)) and a crown from an old root canal came right off!  BINGO!  Health issue number 3 in a week!   Damn! It's tough to get old. :)
The 3 stooges
   So, I called work, called the dentist, and got there by 3:30 p.m. My dentist said that the root canal was 10 years and it lasted a good long time. She temporarily cemented it back on (thankfully), and said that I should consider an implant because the tooth may not put up with a post in it (because it's been dead for 10 years I guess, and there's not much of it left). So, onto the next health issue.
How come 3 of these guys didn't come over to help instead?
THE GOOD NEWS!  -  The good news is - 1) I see my sinus doctor on Wed.and can hopefully, finally blow my nose and clear the congestion 2) I received 3 prescriptions from my family doctor to treat the asthma (and I bought a cool-air humidifier for the bedroom) to hopefully quell it. 3) My tooth is temporarily back together. and 4) Things come in threes so I'm done!
  BTW- I know these things don't compare to people who deal with cancer, heart issues, diabetes, etc. Although asthma is a pretty serious issue.- but they're annoying and debilitating enough to be a total pain.
So, next time we need to deal with three things, we're asking the fates to not make them health challenges, but instead, some handsome, well-built marines (like the guys pictured) to help us around the house! :)

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
