My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Mommy, why does that dog have a triangle on its back? A little boy asked his mom in the waiting room today. I hadn't thought of it as a triangle before. (A very helpful triangle, I thought).
The doctor told Cricket as we were in the exam room. I bet you didn't realize this was part of your job!
Healthy visit with encouragement to keep on yoga-ing, running, biking from the doctor. She also said my memory will return and eventually the hot flashes will go away. Comments that make me smile will continue. Very grateful for Cricket that in a maze of a doctor's clinic when we were finished, I asked her to find the stairs and she did, then find the door, and she did. Then, outside. Good Girl, Cricket. She received a yummy treat for her good work.

Yes, the hotflashes will deter, and the memory will return. Glad you're healthy.
