Griff’s Valley View RV Park, Altoona, IA

What great weather we have been having, aside from one storm, it has been beautiful here.

Sarah has finally been to her last doctor appointment today, all of them gave here glowing reports. She is FREE of cancer and we have been given permission to head south for the winter. So on behalf of Sarah I want to thank everyone for your positive thoughts, prayers and encouragement you have given her this past year. Sarah is looking good, feeling great and has her orneriness back. Life is good.

We have done our fair share of eating out this past week but in deference to our kids I will not elaborate except to tell who we ate with, Mike & Sheri, Cynthia, Tiffany & Matt, Bryon and Alexa, Laurie and Marci, Russ & Candi and Orren & Norma. We enjoyed every minute with each of them and the food was always great.

Today Sarah had her last doctor appt and like I said she got a good report and so she is walking the mall with her friend Gail. Gail and her husband Joe are moving to Clear Lake, we wish them the best.

Tomorrow we are heading to Omaha, just with the car, so Sarah can attend eight hours of classes so she will be able to renew her cosmotologist license next year. It cost a bit but we do save enough on the products she buys to pay for fees.

We are coming back to the camper Saturday night. Sunday we want to spend some time with Cynthia, on Monday Sarah has an appointment with a lymphedema therapist to help her with some exercises to forestall any onset of lymphedema.

Tuesday we head for Kansas City, we are staying at the KOA in Oak Grove, MO. I  picked this because there are not very many campgrounds in the area with full hookups and it is close to the Truman Library, which I want to go see, if is open by then.

We family in the area, Steve and Lynne and kids, and my niece Lindsay and her husband Vince. We hope to see Lindsay & Vince so we can take a look at the new great niece Sophie. We haven’t been able to get hold of Lindsay & Vince so we will have to see what happens.

After KC we head over to Smith Center, KS the the Excel service center for some minor work on the camper. Our plan is to be in Mesa on or before November 1.

Today was the culmination of a busy year with the best news ever, Sarah is cancer free and can get her life back to normal, we are very thankful for God’s grace and blessing on her and all the thoughts and prayers sent her way. Again thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

I believe that wraps it up for now, I probably won’t write anything again until we are in AZ, so stay safe.
