No More Meds!


Date: Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Time: Early Morning

Status: Inner Strength Prevails

Info:   Many blogs ago we discussed the power of Bonnie’s “inner strength” and how important this attribute would be in the defeat of her breast cancer. Her reconstruction surgery; a 3.5 hour ordeal was wrapped up on the 26th of September and in less than two weeks time Bonnie has resigned herself to no drugs, no medications; allowing her body to fix itself on its own without the assistance of the varied filled prescriptions on our bathroom counter. Friday nights, for the past five weeks or so, Bonnie and I have been rambling down to the local Cattlemen’s for dinner, drinks and whatever game is on the big screen and last night was no different. After the drinks came and toasts were made (believe me, we ALWAYS have something to toast or give thanks to on Friday nights) Bonnie stated it was nice to enjoy a glass of Dry Creek Valley without having to worry about its’ combination with other medications. She’s made serious strides with regards to saying goodbye to her pain meds and that remark last night finally sealed the deal. Thought you’d all be happy to hear on her progress.

Today I tear down my former tomato and cucumber garden and begin preparations for planting winter lettuce. Once the GAMECOCK/Kentucky game wraps up I’ll be out back turning the soil for salads on the dinner table to come.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Peace

Papa
