Mackinac Island, MI - part 4, hiking around
Mackinac Island is full of "roads" and trails that can be hiked, cycled, or ridden on horseback. We didn't get to all of them, but did get over 20 miles in. Some of them were horse trails and a bit to mucky for my liking.

My dear Mother-in-law
Just after lunch today the hospital called to tell DH to come in. My dear mother-in-law finished her battle today and is now at peace. These past 2 weeks have been a real struggle for her. It has been hard to see her so uncomfortable and dist... Read more
Mother-in-law updates and many thanks.
The Interventionist (person who inserts stints) has reviewed the angiogram films and one artery can be stinted, but it will be difficult and require at least 3 stints. Also, it is the other 2 that caused the heart attack, and they are not candi... Read more

Before he went to work yesterday, DH and I got out yesterday and did an 11 mile mountain bike ride in an area we haven't ridden in a long time. I was a wild life kind of day, should have been tipped of by all the buzzards that kept circling. W... Read more
