Appreciate your hospital: Several weeks ago our family decided to visit the Wenatchee/Leavenworth area, rent a home on the Wenatchee River, relax and enjoy the peaceful scenery. My granddaughters and I planned for some horseback riding, rafting, hiking, fishing and other fun activities quickly dismissed as we grow older. A great place to spend Father’s Day and my birthday, which followed several days later. As a self-confession, and like many that might be reading this, I am a “workaholic.” Regardless of gender, we “workaholics” are invincible — wrong.
