As the New Year approached, we broke out a bottle on Non-alcoholic wine our daughter Joy bought for us. We are not big partiers, so if I remember correctly we were both out cold way before the clock struck 12. Don had been fighting off a sinus infection and now since he was not allowed to take many over the counter medications, it seemed like it was taking longer than normal to get rid of it.
The next morning he struggled to get going. As usual, the never ending car business did not give him the holiday off he so badly needed. It was obvious that he was sick...too sick to start the Hepatitis medications that weekend. He was now running a fever. No matter! The workaholic in him kept going and out the door he went.... That night I approached him about the medications. He easily agreed with me. The start date had to be changed to the next Saturday night, the 10Th of January.
