Somewhere Over the Rainbow!

Rainbow over Hanapepe River

Happy New Year! This year began with a bang of sorts for me as I fell ill with a tenacious Intestinal Bacteria. I had to be rushed to the hospital in an ambulance( first time ever) and spent four days with vital fluid being returned to my body via intravenous.

Doctors and I could not figure out just where I picked up this bacteria but we attributed it to the massive rain and runoff. Somewhere I touched something and hadn't washed my hands before transmitting food to my mouth. I hadn't gone in the ocean due to the brown water advisories so must had been while beachcombing picking up shells.

I am so grateful for the fantastic care that our local small hospital, KVMH provided and the quick response of the doctors.

I see this as a symbol of this year to come for me: take good care of myself and live a healthy lifestyle with gusto!

Indeed there is a pot of golden opportunities at each end of the rainbow!
