How you doing???

A bore is a man who, when you ask him how he is, tells you. - Bert Leston Taylor

This is one of the quotes that showed up on my iGoggle homepage this morning! Good quote and very true. So, in the spirit of that quote, I am not going to bore you all with endless details of my health. I will however say that for the last week I have been dealing with a fairly significant health scare. Significant enough that it canceled Mark and my planned holiday to New Hampshire.

Yesterday morning my doctor took the 'C' word off the table. When I saw her today, she told me I can start breathing again.

There are still a few tests ahead - and possibly surgery at some time but today it all seems surmountable - and it is nothing that I'm going to let stand in the way of my race plans for this year!

I greatly appreciate the support of those of you that knew what was going on gave me - and I know that the support I would have received had I shared with 'the list' and 'blog' would have been great. I appreciate knowing that that support system is there.

Hug your loved ones!

Whew! This is good news indeed. Now back to the regular programming... Are there any litters on the way?

Karen Ramstead said...

Thanks for the warm wishes guys.

Husky Mom, nope no more litters this year. The 2 girls I wish to breed haven't come into season and for a number of reasons, I have decided that it is best if we not have any further litters this year now.
