I am still here, recovering, getting stronger every day and very grateful for all of you and your wonderful, loving comments!!!!!!!! Last week my surgeon here put in a port for my chemo which starts in a week. Actually took 1 1/2 hours to find a vein for the IV and 3 nurses and only 45 min for the actual insertion! Figures. I'm a little freaked by this piece of plastic in my chest and the chemicals they're going to put in but the alternatives seem to be worse so...we do what we have to do. I just got my stitches out yesterday and everything looks good.
AND my model (Katie) came over a couple of days ago and put a saddle on my Dommie and one on Duke and we RODE!! It was wonderful even though we kept it at a walk (ok, I did a little trotting too). The horses were so happy to be out in the field. The sun was out and no bugs and it was a perfect day! Of course right now my legs feel like rubber and I'm a little sore but it certainly did my spirit good!! We topped off St. Patrick's Day with a potluck at my riding instructor's house (Nance) for all the horse ladies (and two horse guys!) and I got to see everyone for the first time in months! Truly a day to remember. Even though I've been exhausted since then--sooooo worth it!!!!
Next Thursday Gary and I are driving down to NYC for my first checkup since the surgery. At least this time I will be able to walk around and see some of the city so I'm looking forward to that! I'm taking pictures this time so my posts won't be so boring!!
Meanwhile, love to all of you--I can't tell you how much your comments mean to me!
