I was just thinking how fortunate I am to have been able to not only take this trip but also have my Wife, Teresa, along for the ride from Nashville to New Orleans. I've been on the road for most of November, December and January. Missing our special times on the weekends. Missing out on a family meal or two. Just missing, period.
I did manage to start my annual cancer check-ups when I was home for a hot minute. But it's just the start, as I still have to get poked and prodded and shot with needles a few more times. And shoved in tube for 20-25 minutes to see if the cancer has come back. I have graduated to once a year check-ups. So that's a great thing. And despite all the traveling, 4 hours of sleep a night and waking up more than a few times thinking "where the hell am I?, it's been a life experience I'll never forget.
Thank God I'm alive to take it all in.
