Entering a completely new phase of life, this week has been a wild ride!! Thank the good Lord for the infusion nurses...they seem to know every nuance invading my body as a result of chemotherapy. My listening ears have taken in all their tips and advice. I could sort through a long list of "ugh's" experienced this week; however, let's just say I'm sticking with my motto, the poison is saving my life!! As Nurse Darla says, "this is potent medicine". For now, I will accept the necessary adjustments. There will be life after chemo! THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all for your well wishes, positive thoughts, and prayers(please make sure they go north-ha!) These words of encouragement help me stay on point. Humor is always appreciated-laughter is the best medicine! H 1 Unlimited Racing has been absent from the Potomac River for 33 years. Despite weather conditions, our good friend, Scott Liddycoat was the first H 1 Unlimited driver to get on the river. A select number of boats put on an exhibition at National Harbor near Washington D.C. Next year's expectation is to dazzle the east coast with unlimited racing. Socializing in the rain was a bit soggy. Much to our delight we reconnected with friends, John and Carolyn. Even though time continues to fly by, it is easy to pick up where we left off with them. Have you ever had guacamole made table-side? The four of us enjoyed a leisurely Mexican lunch from the waterside restaurant.
Corky was on a mission that took us to Pennsylvania. After a much needed good night's sleep we stopped at Central Market in York, Pa. I lived there 30 years ago. One memory of York is the famous Farmers' Market. Pennsylvania Dutch foods are filling, delicious, and ALWAYS homemade, home butchered, etc. While we strolled through the aisles of market, I was certainly glad my tummy wasn't up to all the goodies. Otherwise, my market basket would have been full to the brim and my waist line would be strrr-etched beyond capacity!
These small trips keep us content. We're hoping for many more. Very proudly, Corky will be attending his son's retirement from the Air Force. Dee has extraordinarily served our country for 28 years! Thank you, Dee, for your service to our country.
