Suzy and I are taking our first planned vacation post-stroke. We aren't going far - just north of Philadelphia to Bucks County. Currently we have no plans at all for the trip. The place we are staying as a hot tub, a pool, and an outdoor fireplace. We may never leave it! We are really looking forward to getting away and recharging our batteries. This past nine months has been a struggle and we are tired. We are determined though. Hopefully the next few days will give us a respite and we will come back ready to go for another nine months!
