Our capitol building in Olympia, Washington
Sometimes life gets in the way of pursuing your dreams and sometimes you can just incorporate what is going on in your life with living the dream. I haven't posted since last summer about Bruce's "potential illness" since there was really nothing new to report.
Anyone who was looking at my blog last February 14, 2009 read a post about Bruce possibly getting a diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome. Turned out the oncologist could not determine anything positive. Bruce could develop it in the future...or he may not develop it. This is a pre-leukemia disease. With that information last year we just decided to look forward to continuing our fulltime RV lifestyle (which had only begun 6 months prior to this news).
Last week the doctor told Bruce there was nothing new showing up in the blood tests and at this point there was no reason to see the oncologist unless something shows up in the future. So...we are continuing to look forward once again.
It seems like we are looking forward, now, to beginning the next part of our journey when we leave Tumwater on the 24th. We'll be away from Tumwater until approximately June 4th. I'm looking forward to seeing some places we haven't seen in a long time and some places we've never seen.
We'll be making a return trip to the Texas Hill Country in April. Just a stop over for a few days, but looking forward to seeing the wildflowers blooming. I'm looking forward to taking some nice photos for my blog on this trip. We expect to see some amazing things once we begin our trek home traveling along Hwy. 50.
While we've been sitting here in Tumwater, Bruce has been doing some armchair traveling with our travel books searching out new possibilities for future trips. There are endless possibilites out there and we look forward to getting the chance to fullfill that dream.

Until next time.....so long for now!
