Run happy and healthy all the days of my life. Be an example and inspiration to my family.
I'm 63, retired RN, happily married, nana to 11 beautiful grandchildren, mother to 6 children (1 daughter, 5 sons) who are kind, hardworking, caring, wonderful people! Wish they live closer!!! :) :) :)
Picked up running in 2005 at age 50, to stay healthy so I can take care of my husband who had endocarditis resulting in AVR and MVR in 2004, end stage renal failure in 2014, kidney transplant on Dec 30, 2015. Six months after the kidney transplant, we discovered that he has a rare auto-immune disease that was probably triggered in 2004 with then the undiagnosed infective endocarditis. The doctors had to make up a name for this rare disease, Monoclono Gammopathy with Renal Significance (MGRS). It is not curable. After desperately trying different chemotherapies, the doctor finally found one immuno-therapy, Daratumamab, that works to treat the MGRS. It is a miracle!!!
Grateful for the gift of life, blessings, dear friends and loved ones!!! Thankful for the ability to move, walk, jog, and yes run!!!!

Yo Ms. Smooth, so good to hear from you about your adventure down under with W/Bro-Larry. Keep catching some miles as you well know, your days in Auzzie land will be over way to quickly and you'll both be home with us again! "Be careful out there"!!!!!

Oh good Smooth, you are running and blogging again. It is always so exciting when I get a little note from you on my blog I know you are so busy. Doone says hi. It is funny how much you and Larry come up in our conversations. Have a wonderful day.

Glad to see you running and blogging a little bit. I went to a Rockets game with your son-in-law about a week ago. Nice guy, but didn't even know who he was until we started comparing notes. Small world.
