When I started chemo back in January I knew there would be a lot of things I would miss during treatment. One of those things was my daughter and son-in-law's move to Kansas from Oklahoma, where Andy was stationed. I had wanted to help them move into their new home in early April but understood that being in treatment would make that difficult. So instead I set a goal to visit them as soon as I finished chemo.
Last Wednesday, we began the 1300 mile , 2 day drive to the Little Apple- Manhattan Kansas. We started out from just outside the Big Apple and drove through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri into Kansas until we reached Manhattan- which is known as the Little Apple. I really like road trips- it is a great way to see this beautiful country. I never knew there were tunnels through the mountains in western PA, that Illinois was so flat or that the wind never stops in Kansas.
We are enjoying our visit and love Andy and Terry's new home. From here in the Flint Hills of Kansas, we visited the Sunset Zoo, Fort Riley , the Oz Museum in Womego, and the Rose Garden in Topeka.The weather has been warm and mostly sunny since we arrived. No tornados have been sighted but we did meet KSU Wildcats ! (Yes, the same Wildcats that Rutgers beat in the Texas Bowl in 2006.)
Being done with chemo and making this trip - priceless!
Every Day is a blessing! And I've been truly blessed.
