I have to say this has got to be the best b/d I have ever had!!!! It started out first thing this am with my bestest friend in the whole world, Theresa, and her teriffic PaPa, whom I openly admit to having a crush on, showed up on my doorstep after driving 3 hours to get here. WOW, was that a shock and the greatest gift ever!!! (Also loved all my pretties) Though the hours were short the memories were forever. They went with hubby and I to pick up his new toy for his 50th b/d, which isn't till June but the price was so much nicer now, a brand new 883 Hugger. It's black and beautiful. Can't wait for the weather to turn warm cause just the sound of that motor purring made my motor purr........oh, that's another story. And since we just happen to be at the Harley shop, Theresa and I got matching Harley braclets, too cool!!!! Then after we picked up my b/d gift, we all went out to eat and stuffed ourselves and just talked and talked!!!! I couldn't have planned a better nor more meaningful day! UPDATE ON HUBBY: All the areas on his hands are drying up, thus nothing to culture, so that is a great sign. Thank the Lord. No reactions to the Vanc. but we are now infusing BID, so that means his kidneys are handling it all very well. God has blessed me this day. Now, to thank all of you that sent me wishes, you were the icing on a wonderful cake filled with love. Gosh how great you all are!!!! I wish I could hug everyone of you to pieces!!!! Theresa and PaPa, I love you both more than words, sorry that MaMa couldn't make it but in the Spring when we bring Jimmy's new toy there, we'll make some great memories seeing her on the back of his Harley. (Just got to make sure they don't run off together!) Love and hugs to all of you and thanks for the best b/d ever!!!!!!
