This blog post is dedicated to my friend Sheryl, affectionately know as “Toot”. I met Toot in 2015 during chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. Toot and I shared our cancer journey together, but sadly her journey recently ended. She was spirited, passionate and wise beyond her years. Our friendship was short-lived, but meaningful to us both.
Hello from San Francisco,
We’re sitting in our lovely studio in the Richmond district watching the World Cup. It’s a sunny, but relatively cold day–burr. Summers in San Francisco are chilly willy. I do not like this cold weather one bit. I long for warmer environs!
Andy’s recovery from colon cancer is going great. He’s walking a lot more and says he is now 95% recovered. I beleive him. Laproscopic surgery is da bomb! In the next few days he has a call with an oncologist to review his pathology report and he has a call with a nutritionist to talk about healthy eating after cancer.
Andy’s 95% means we can hit the road for new adventures!!! We’re both very excited about our upcoming plans.
Here’s a sneak peak at our upcoming itinerary. We’ll be gone about four weeks in total.
Visalia, CA- Minor league baseball game
Zion Nationa Park
Bryce National Park
Denver- We’ll be there for 9 days. We’re stoked about going the Colorado Rockies’ July 4th fireworks game … against the Giants! We might even see a show at Red Rocks.
In Colorado we may also do a one-day river rafting excursion. I love white water river rafting!
Telluride- We’re going to the Telluride Music Festival! Sheryl Crow is headlining!
Bay Area (to drop off our clothes and to pick up new ones)
Side note: When we started planning what our next adventure would look like, we made a list of what we wanted, and one of the first things on this list was “to not move around too much”. Oops! We’re cracking ourselves up about this. Our longest stay in this trip will only be 9 days until we get to Morelia!
I will blog from the road to give you an update about our trip. We anticipate we’ll be doing a bunch of hiking (easy ones for me, harder ones for Andy) and just general sight seeing. I’ve never been to any of these places before (Utah and Colorado) and I’m pretty excited.
We are both very, very excited to return to Morelia. We’ll probably be there at least three months, maybe even four months depending on how we are feeling.
That’s about it for now folks!
