I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful holiday and giving a little thought to why we celebrate this day. Thanks to all the wonderful heroes of our country!
Troy is still improving little by little. We both thought he would be further along in his recovery by now, but the pain has been lingering longer and more severely than we anticipated. It's a double edged sword. He needs to get up and move around, but it hurts to do so. The nights are difficult too. He is making progress though.
I was just thinking this morning about how we haven't had much time to let it sink in but - Troy is free of cancer! What a wonderful feeling. It seems like we have been living in a sort of dream world during his recovery from surgery. First in the hospital and now at home. Maybe it will sink in more as we resume our daily lives and get back to work and sailing and enjoying life. We are looking forward to a great summer on the water.
They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou
