A Tale of Ever After

Life happened. Hubby had a problem with the heat in Las Vegas (where he's working with the fire team doing information work) and it shot his blood pressure up, but they realized some of his sinus med and one other was causing him not to sweat efficiently. Blood pressure's down, he's hydrated properly, and they gave him a day off. But as you might guess, this kind of wreaked havoc on my concentration and getting TEA out. Freaking out long distance over a hubby who was having the time of his life doing his job and suddenly facing this was not very good for my writing.

But here I am, only about 3 hours late.

Glad to hear that your husband is feeling better. A number of SD firefighters from the Black Hills were among those killed in the Arizona fire.

Oh the burnover was such a sad thing. Sometimes the weather changes so so very fast. Hubby had been in Prescott the week before at the Doce fire, and got to see that crew honored for saving a particuarly historic tree and then this.

All my hubby's been doing is talking with the press. Been quoted in newspapers almost every day since he's been there, been in some TV footage, but mostly he's been facilitating news reporters helping them get the story right.

He's been working fire for 41 years in different jobs. Started doing regular bushtruck initial attack as a young man, rappelled out of helicopters for a while, did dispatch, then moved into public information. He's a very good press liason. And he was so scared at first that this was going to keep him out of doing any more fire, but it's more a case of using some meds that don't work well with heat when you're not really acclimated to the local temp range.

I commend your dedication, ma'am - much less than this has put me (and many others) off any semblance of a writing schedule! That said - I am happy to hear your husband has recovered. The inability to sweat properly is a scary, freaky thing! o.O
