34 month checkup today and another zero, my Doctor is pleased and so am I. I can’t say enough about early detection and a skilled surgeon when needed. Now we work on high blood pressure and a tendency to enjoying food too much. 60 degrees here and I am riding my motorcycle with the anticipation of spring.
May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
