Michele Feels fine!
I know these posts are having more time between them. As the saying goes… Much has happened and little has happened. Michele has been off her Chemo Medications for over a month now. Her last Doctor’s visit a couple of weeks ago, her white blood count numbers were down, and her neutrophils were also down. It would potentially be bad news. However, it is just an indication that her body needs more time to recover.
Next Tuesday we will revisit with the Doctor, and we are hopeful a new plan will emerge.
She feels great!
She has more energy. She has more optimism. She has a forward-looking attitude, and I could not be happier. We managed to go out dancing with friends. Something that just a few weeks before was improbable.
She is walking more. The walks are getting longer as the weather is getting warmer. She is getting to spend more time with Bella. A new grandbaby gives you more to live for.
She missed a trip she earned.
The insurance industry has a history of rewarding the top sales earners with extraordinary trips. From Aruba to Australia, we have seen many places together. This year’s trip was to Ireland. We knew with the troubles we had trying to take a cruise that Ireland was going to be too much of a trip.
I was able to make the trip with a good friend and I just returned Friday. I know that there was so much that I wanted her to be there and enjoy the experience with me. I also know that Europe is all about walking. You can do it with taxis, but the true experience is walking down the streets and exploring.
I repeatedly said it was the right choice as she could not keep up with the walking and the late nights. We visited Dublin, Belfast, and the Northern Ireland Coast. All were incredible sites and stories. The people are friendly beyond compare. The best thing about the trip was advice to return and visit the Southwestern part of the Island.
Back in the saddle
The blessing of the trip that my daughter and son-in-law return from tomorrow, was that family got to take care of Bella. She has been amazing for everyone during this trip. We also will have visited with all our children over this Easter Weekend as well. Many blessings.
Now we move forward. It is time to grow the business. It is time to get the medication right to lift her up, not down. It is time to live.
I have a richer sense that life is short and that the time to DO is not to be put off.
I hope everyone has a blessed Easter. Look for the photos of Ireland on our social media over the next few weeks.
