HUGE News! Phone call from Low Impact from the Colorado Trail!

Well today was a slightly better day for one spent at the hospital. First my brother Dan and his girlfriend Yolonda visited Sheila and brought a cheesecake (which we dug right into in the afternoon!), then I went out for awhile and met my daughter Jacki for dinner at Ton's Mongolian Grill, then just now we got a phone call from Low Impact. Low whom we met last year on our AT hike is right now out on the 500 mile Colorado Trail at mile 180 and took the time to check in and see how Sheila (Toesocks to him) was doing. It was great to hear from a trail friend since we had to quit our hike again this year. We wish him the best and think of him daily since he is still out there "crunching" out the miles! Sheila was especially thrilled that he took the time to call and see how she was doing. It was funny hearing how his beloved INOV8 shoes gave him blisters and really tore up his feet and that he was now hiking in Chaco sandals!! Sheila wishes she could send him some Injinji toesocks!
We also discovered that today Sheila has started to lose her hair from the last week of having chemo. I will have to find her a pink stocking hat to match her new pink ("arm warmers").

P.S. Just got a clip of LOW descending MT. Elbert, Colorado's highest peak:
