Back in October, In my post ‘I need a vacation‘, I wrote the following –
I need a vacation, so Gary and I have planned taking a cruise in December a couple of weeks prior to Christmas. We are planning taking a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise the second week in December. Today, there are still uncertainties with my health and the care needed; but I truly believe I will be able to travel by the second week in December. This travel in December will be discussed with my Oncologist Dr. D. whom I have an appointment with prior to today’s chemotherapy treatment.
My view on my health and my life is that taking a small break from what is taking place, will be a benefit for Gary and myself. Precautions will be taken and I will remain focus on remaining infection free.
I need to get away – I need a break – I need to have some fun – I need a vacation.
In today’s post, I write the following –
I received the all-clear from my Oncologist Dr. D. for the cruise and with chemotherapy completed more than 6 weeks ago, I am ready. Gary and I are setting sail on our cruise today.
I plan to take many pictures, some videos and hopefully will have a brain full of ideas for future posts.
I know the certainties of my future healthcare – I know what to expect the beginning of next year. I have shared this information with you and I accept what the future holds for me. I place the future in the future knowing it will soon be the present. Before that future present arrives, the present today is here and the cruise, the vacation, the get-away, the break, the fun begins in a few hours.
Yesterday, we traveled to and stayed overnight with Gary’s older brother in Orlando and this morning we make our way to Port Canaveral to board and set sail for our 7-day cruise.
Just a reminder my friends, my personal goal is to post every single day – expect posts while I am away. I also want to remind you, as indicated in my post ‘Spending time away‘, I will disable comments on some of the posts due to my limited time online.
