February 21

I come to the office each morning and stay for long hours doing what has to be done to the best of my ability. And when you've done the best you can you can't do any better.
- Harry S. Truman

Well, I don't go "to the office" anymore, but each day poses it's own challenges. All any of us can do is the best we can to the best of our ability, no matter what challenges we face.

We found a great home for our puppy Hazel. She gets to run, romp, and play on 9 acres with a "big brother" male boxer. I think she will be very happy there. We miss her, but I believe this has been the right decision. It's great to know she's gone to a good home. Still working on the cat issue...

I had to skip treatment again this week, as pneumonia isn't cleared up yet. In fact, there's a spot of fluid on my upper right lung that they want to biopsy. So, today at 1:00 I am going in for a needle biopsy. Not really looking too forward to it. I just hope the numbing beforehand works really good!! I don't like being awake for these procedures. It's kind of freaky.

Anyhow, we actually went out for a short cycle ride last Saturday. Should I have gone? That's debatable. But it felt great to be out and riding again, though still a bit cold. I was exhausted but happy when we got home. So I think it was worth it! Carpe Diem!!

I'll let you know how biopsy goes today. More later,

I'm glad Hazel got a home and you got out for a ride. Thanks for keeping us updated, Jane.

If you felt up to it, we wouldn't mind seeing you "at the office" now and then. Praying for your pneumonia to clear up. Miss you.

Dear Jane:
Ride and enjoy, and do not worry about it. Hope the biopsy turns out fine, and that there is nothing more to be concerned about. Think of Spring time. Love and Prayers, Regina
