Hockey Playoffs and a Leap of Faith

           Quote:   “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” – Wayne Gretzky

In our area it’s hockey playoff time and while I am way more interested in my Detroit Tigers baseball you gotta watch the playoffs when your Redwings are playing your daughter’s beloved Bruins.  Of course her team won and is moving on in the playoffs and my Tigers are kicking butt so all is good here in the Midwest.

I remember watching it snow as I stood in front of the window in Dan’s hospital room two and a half months ago, praying he would be ok, wondering if our dream was gone…

Weeks after that, snowed in at home, just taking care of Dan…..restful, quiet, and calm…

Then getting him out everyday to walk, usually in a store due to cold weather.  Later in Cardio Rehab watching him walk on a treadmill just about made me cry, whew, have we really come this far??

He looks so good today!!  Just amazing.

Bought a 35ft class A motorhome – pick it up on May 20th – Don’t even know where we’ll keep it yet – lease on this condo is up in Oct – Dan can’t drive yet but I did the test drive – The dream is on…..

OMG – I’M TAKING THAT SHOT, thanks Gretzky….


Our 2005 Monaco Monarch – I’m not always sure where I’m going, I just know I gotta go..
