So April is here. The Sandhill Cranes in big flocks pass high overhead, almost invisible they are so far above us. But you can certainly hear their croaking.
Yesterday Ellen baked bread for the first time since her surgery.
She was tired after this effort and slept most of the afternoon. We had soup and fresh bread for dinner.
Ellen has been walking every day. Her distances have increased. They were 4 km, then 6 km and lately 9 pushing 10 km. Sometimes two long walks a day.
Today Ellen gave Luke some important instructions. She told him to get the hell out of the house and meet his friend Craig at Monarch Ski Area and go skiing.
It turned out that Ellen was right as usual. This was exactly what I needed to do. It lifted my spirits greatly. What a wonderful friend to drive three hours to go skiing with me. It was great snow and great conditions.
Tomorrow Ellen will walk 6 km to the Gunnison Valley Hospital for her second chemotherapy treatment. I know everyone will want to give her as much moral and emotional support as they can. If the last time around is an indication, when she will feel the effects the worst will be next week end.
She is looking great and her energy level is recovering. We are so grateful for all the support and caring. You are wonderful.
