Last week we took a huge group of customers fishing in the Keys. I was so proud of how our little group put on such a fantastic event. And it felt great to be back in the real swing of things, doing a job I love with people I adore. I missed Kendall & the girls terribly though. It was COLD for the the Keys & the water was super rough so the fishing sucked. But there's never a bad day on a boat. Here are a couple pics from that trip.

So I got home Friday evening & Saturday morning Kendall ran a half marathon in Nashville. The girls & I went & watched him finish in under 1:30!! Here are a couple pics from Saturday morning.

So tonight we are back at home, all 5 of us in the bed. The rest of this week will be busy - Emilia has a swim meet on Saturday. And our friend Rita is visiting this weekend from upstate NY. We haven't seen her since March of 2004 -- pretty excited to see her. And on Monday morning we go to Florida to see my brother's family for Thanksgiving.
My dad was in the hospital this weekend - he had a mini stroke. Both of his carotid arteries are almost completely blocked so in a couple weeks he is having one of them fixed. Its always something.
As for me, its hard to believe that the week after Thanksgiving I have my first 3 month scan - this particular one is a PET scan. Doesn't seem possible does it. Its also time for my annual colonoscopy that week - blah. Then the following week I will have an echocardiogram to see if the chemo drugs have had any lasting negative impact on my heart & will also see Dr Holt & Dr Keedy.
I'm feeling great really. Haven't lost any of my chemo weight but my strength is definitely coming back. I don't have quite as much stamina as I was used to - I get pretty tired at the end of the days but other than that I can pretty much do everything I want to do. Been going to spin but had to take a break from pilates as I've injured my rotator cuff in my right shoulder. I'll start physical therapy for that pretty soon; my orthopedist thinks its from returning to normal activity & will be fixed by therapy.
My hair is growing growing growing. Fat foot/leg is still an issue but I'm not complaining.
Hope you are all enjoying a great fall!!
