24 weeks and counting

Friday, May 31, 2013

Yes, I am still on my daily exercise streak and I will have completed a full 1/2 year by the end of next week! I would not have thought this were possible when I started. I am feeling like a winner on so many levels.
I can share now that the announcement has been made in the professional magazines that I have been selected as one of 2013's Heroes of Infection Prevention. I am one of twelve individuals or groups selected for this world-wide honor. APIC (Association of Professionals in Infection Control) is flying me to Fort Lauderdale next week to be honored at the annual APIC convention. The awards ceremony will be on Saturday, June 8th at the convention center. I am bringing Don and Polly to share this experience with me. We will extend our vacation for about 10 days of fun in Orlando after the conference ends on Monday, the 10th.
I am so blessed. I'm so excited!!

    I was so hoping to be able to go over to Orlando but may not be able to do it. I am disappointed but just not up to trip. Will rethink it when it comes closer to date.
Congrats on the honor you are receiving. emoticon emoticon
