My daughter has been driving towards me for three days. Wednesday morning she made it to SLC 😀
Heather wanted to drive some more to keep Porter asleep. So I got in the car. We went up Big Cottonwood Canyon. What a gorgeous, blue sky day!
We could only see a little bit of snow at the very top. We were at 8,700 feet. Oh, my gosh! At that elevation it was hard to breathe and hard to lift my feet up. We stopped at Silver Lake….the place where I got bit by mosquitoes and was infected with West Nile Virus. I assured Fletcher that the mosquitoes were gone for the season.
The restroom building had water drip off and freeze on the sidewalk. I picked up a chunk and threw it in the parking lot. They had a good time stomping on their ice chunks. By the time we left, they had harvested and destroyed much of the ice 😀
Back down in the valley, we had dim sum for lunch. The boys liked the tanks of live seafood. While eating, all of the sudden, my voice worked! It lasted maybe 20 minutes. Holy smokes! That’s the first time that has happened since August! Heather and I used to joke when we were in Vermont, that Chinese food cured me. 😀 Unfortunately when I stood up, I instantly got weak and my voice took a hike. I have huge hopes that the antibiotics will make me better, thereby making the MG better, and then I will have my voice back. Dang…I sure hope so!!!!
When we got to my apartment, both boys got excited about the two shelves of kid books. I have slowly but surely amassed the collection by going to Deseret Industries every few days to find good books. Here’s me and Porter. I wish my voice worked!
Both boys were happy to see me. I am always amazed that they remember me and love me. When they left for their hotel, Porter gave me a monster hug. Each time he got a few feet away, he ran back to give me more hugs and kisses. Of course I think they are the cutest, most precious little boys in the whole world! ☺️
I was soooo tired! Went to bed early and slept like a log for six hours.
Hmmmmm……what adventures will we have today? I am very, very thankful for the antibiotics that made doing things possible. Yes! 😊
