(16) Thank you!

IMG_6191We had perfect weather for our bike ride!  We each did 33 miles.  Eileen had it a bit harder than I did because we brought Paddy, and Eileen pulled the cart (Paddy weighs in at a chunky 16 lbs.)

I appreciate all of the kind and positive thoughts you continue to send my way. They’re coming along with me to Iowa and I will keep them all very close. If I’m not too groggy, I’ll send an update Thursday evening.  Friday morning for sure.

  1. On 10/1 your “Anesthesiologist” will probably be your favorite bud….a little chit/chat and then off to “who gives a hoot” to what happens next…you’ll be snoring away while the surgeon works his magic!!!!

    10/1 is now “all about Mike” day…..sending gentle hugs to you and know that we’ll both be thinking about you.
