I usually don't write about personal stuff, but in this case I feel I owe you an explanation. While on the road on an island in the Puget Sound, I came very close to dying in my sleep. Fortunately my darling husband woke up to find me not breathing & without any heartbeat. After 3 days on life support, 5 days in critical care, and with one miracle after another on top of each other, I managed to recover without any brain damage what-so-ever. I simply stopped breathing. An electrical problem was declared to be the culprit and I now sport a ICD (implantable cardiac defibrillator). I decided the rest of the year needed to be devoted to staying healthy, so catching up on this was not in the forefront of my mind.
Then life happens, and as soon as we turned into the new year, I had to get ready for a very busy tax season. So please hang on, and I'll get back to your questions very soon. All our travel plans got cancelled and yes, Bob endured some life altering events as well. I am happy to report we are both well and looking forward to getting on the road again as soon after April 15th as possible!
Wishing you a very belated Happy & Healthy New Year!
