I am a woman falconer, enjoying the Great Outdoors with a hawk on my fist.

I have just gotten home today . . . from the hospital! I was there for 3 days. Richard had me transported on Wednesday night by ambulance to Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse, Wisconsin. I had a cold, but it went into something worse. The Infection Team diagnosed influenza, even though all the tests they took didn't indicate such. I was in a fog most of this last week. I missed a lot of "fun". There was the ambulance ride. Then the Emergency Room and Gundersen. I was given a neb treatment . . . which is too bad that I wasn't awake to appreciate it. Richard says I fought it. They did a Spinal Tap on me . . . lot of fun missed! I then apparently spent some time in the CCU. My final move was to a normal room. I woke up on Friday. Richard was very glad to see me normal. I was surprised to find myself in the hospital. It has been a very unusual event! I've never experienced anything like this. Hopefully, I'll not experience it again. This was my work weekend. My co-workers kindly picked up my shifts. I thank them for that . . . I'll get back to work on Thursday and Friday.
Falconry! Or more appropriately for me, Hawking! It is a passion, and a way of life. I happily pursue this sport, with the loving assistance of my husband. Come along with me for our adventures with the birds. Primarily we actively pursue it in the colder months . . . the rest of the time I try to make this blog as interesting as possible. Come let me share my stories, and feel free to contact me. I always enjoy talking about my obsession with this sport.
