This is one of those times when we think about all our petty complaints, and how lucky we really are. "If you've got your health, you've got everything." Remember that one? It's true. Yes, it rained and you forgot your umbrella. Or you paid for a dozen eggs, but the clerk forgot to put them in your grocery bag and they were left at the store. Is it really that bad?
We would ride on smaller loops of 5 miles or so, and we'd talk more than ride. She's hopeful to be back in the saddle in late summer or early fall. September in New England is beautiful on a bike. The recovery period will keep her setting still for a while and I'm sure she'll have trouble with that, but she'll probably have a good tan this year ;) I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her, and for the good Doc who will be working on her.
Enjoy your day, and remember to count your blessings.
