Hello Family and Friends
Just a little update to let you know that I am feeling "alive" again and ready to rejoin the human race. My racing engine may not be running on all 8 cylinders just yet, but it is firing on at least 6 right now! And that is a drastic improvement.
The doctors had told me I would start to feel somewhat "human" again after about 10 days after the end of treatments. Well, I am here to tell you that they are right!!!
This weekend we were invited down to Myrtle Beach, by Annette's brother Oscar and his wife Sue, whom I love, and we stayed at their lovely waterfront home on the Inter-coastal Waterway. I helped him haul down his 22' pontoon boat, get it cleaned up and launched and secured in his boat lift. We did a shake down cruise up the waterway and had a great time. We did a little maintenance on the boat, the boat lift, his pier, and the cover for his boat. Everything went really well and we had a great 3-day weekend. The weather was nice (70's and sunny), and we even played 9-holes of golf one afternoon. We played cards in the evenings (no bragging but I put a whipping on them), Phase 10 (have you every heard of it?).
My appetite came back quite a ways, especially after Oscar fixed us some prime rib on the grill, and we even went out to a buffet one night. This was a huge step for me. I'm not pigging out but I am eating more and my energy level was way up. I contribute it to good sunny weather, fresh air, good company, and just a great time overall.
Nothing further to report at this time other than I am feeling much better and, of course, looking marvelous. I'm glad to be back in the race.
Keep those thoughts and prayers coming and thanks again for all the wonderful cards I have received from so many of you.
