Hi Everyone! Wow, it's been a while since I've written! Mainly because I had taken a break from going to Denver! Our main concern of course was getting rid of the bleeds, and Dr. Robinson (DDS and Plastic Surgeon) did that by cauterizing the capillaries in my gums! It took a while for me to adjust to not having to worry anymore while I was eating a meal, or brushing my teeth or having a bleed in the middle of the night! So, after taking time emotionally, physically and mentally, I was ready to get back to CO!
About a week before my appt. time, I get an e-mail from one of Dr. Yakes P.A.'s - Mandi Shaw, that she was very excited that I would be there next week! I just can't emphasize enough how awesome everyone @ Swedish is! I had posted on Facebook that I would be there the following week, and immediately got a response from one of the nurses (Laurie) @ Swedish, also looking forward to seeing me! They make their patients feel so great and well taken care of!
Took the shuttle to the car rental area and picked up a vehicle. Headed over to Ted's Montana Grill since it's near the airport where we have befriended one of the waiteresses there! Turns out Michelle used to live in Calallen! She is the sweetest person, the kind that would give you the shirt of her back! I keep in touch with her on Facebook but hadn't seen her in a while, so it was great visiting with her again!
I had a mushroom swiss bison burger with sour cream and avocado and Mark had a bison burger called The Kitchen Sink and it included ham an over easy egg and avocado and who knows what else!
Here is another nurse that came by and was excited to see us! It's so great being there, just knowing how well you're going to be taken care of!
We finally board our plane in Houston the next day, and that had already been delayed once! Had to call my ENT to tell them I'd be an hour late! The one good thing that happened was that I met a really nice person on the flight! Her name is Leone Lewis and we had lots to talk about, because she also has pets! Just wish I hadn't been hacking the whole time, but I really enjoyed talking to her! I gave her one of my blog cards and she gave me her number so I could send her a cute dog cartoon I had!
Thanks so much again to everyone for all your love and support! Couldn't do this without you!
Love and Hugs!
Mark, Cyndi, Hanz and Bella!
