I'm feeling a little better every day. I'm also really appreciative of all your get well wishes, cards, and gifts -- all that positive stuff really does help. Today I returned to the gym for a workout -- a truncated one as per doctor's orders, but a good one nonetheless. I did a half hour of cardio -- 20 minutes on the elliptical and 10 on a bike. Got my heart rate up there and worked up a nice sweat. It felt good. I won't be doing weights for another couple of weeks, though.
My 'job' this week is to recuperate as best I can so we can go on our cruise that leaves next week for Nova Scotia. We're excited and also hopeful that Igor, his category 5 self, and any hurricane siblings of his will leave us all alone. I'm getting a prescription for scopolamine patches just in case. I've also been watching the West Coast of Africa as it's been spitting out one system after another. If I were to go back to school, I'd get another degree in meteorology or marine science -- or maybe both.
Youngest daughter has been at her new job for over a month now, and frankly she's happier than a pig in slop. She's up to her schnutz in horses and loving it. Saturday they participated in a fox hunt (foxhunts in this country are such that the fox is 'hunted', but left unscathed). Here she is -- first alone and then with her new boss: they're the ones on top. :)
