I guess it's time for me to crawl out from under my rock.
It's been a pretty rough journey since last October. And that's putting it mildly. I thought I was going to be able to fly last March (which I think was the last time I actually blogged!!) but that didn't happen. I was finally given the medical clearance to start flying again in late May. Thank God. Over the last 5 weeks, I've built up to a pretty normal schedule and I'm doing fine!
There were times I thought my flying days were over forever...and I was very, very, very discouraged. Even too discouraged to blog here to my dear friends. Please forgive me.
One of the things that kept me going and really felt WONDERFUL was when my dearest Teddy organized sending me cards, letters and gifts from all of you here on EX at Christmastime. I don't think I've ever felt so loved! My heart is full even now when I think of it.
Many of you have tried to reach me and I have not responded. A special loving kiss blown to Kathy (Strudel), Brenda M and Teddy for not giving up and still continuing to try to reach out to me. A big hug to Dale (chili rellenos forever!), Tommy, Jordan, Giulia, Ellen (elvan), Shawn, Nanawendy, Nyima, Moody, Stac (to name only a few and my apologies to those I did not name!) and all the others who texted, emailed, messaged or otherwise tried to contact me. I feel guilty for not responding, but I went for long periods not logging on to EX or Facebook or even checking my email. I'm so sorry about not responding, but It was pretty dark under my rock for a long while.
But, as I said, I'm crawling out from under that rock now. I take about a thousand pills a day now, which I hate, but since it allows me to spread my wings and live a (mostly) normal life again, I'm good with it. Thank goodness for good medical care!
And why did I choose NOW to crawl out? Because I'm flying an assignment to West Palm Beach in a couple of weeks and I need to see if Teddy can come out to play with me while I'm there!
