Luke was in Denver for a couple of days. The first time we have not been together since this chapter began a little over a month ago. But Ellen had with her a wonderful friend, Tamara McGuire. They have been close friends since they were in graduate school together at Texas A&M. Tamara lives in Alaska and studies belugas.
Muster, Gunnison Colorado, March 2019
Please note Aggie Maroon bathrobe. The two of them had a wonderful few days together, managing a total of five dogs. And Ellen at last had a chance to mend the hole in Luke’s old ski pants.
She has also been indulging her passion for jigsaw puzzles.
Most of all, Ellen is trying to take care of herself and build her strength for the challenges that lie ahead. In that vein, we continue to be deeply touched and very appreciative of all the support and friendship of so many of you. It is making a real and very positive difference for us.. Thank you for the meals, for the calls and emails, the orthobionomy treatments, the many helpful suggestions, the lovely cards, and just letting us know you care. We care about you, too.
Hearing from you is important.
Ellen is setting some goals for herself. One is to be fit enough to do the Andes crossing next year. And another is to win the Winter Triathlon trophy again. She and her friend Geri won it this year. They are still trying to figure out who designed it.
