Now that was awesome!

It was a sunny day!


We were running along the golf course again and Kim says, “Neil, look up ahead!” I look and say, “Holy $hit, no way!” Just a bit up the path are Cindy and Doug.


Cindy and Doug.

Doug was the guy I thought died last week pretty much in this same spot. He was not dead, but actually looking pretty good! We ran up to them and it was like a family reunion! It was all hugs and hello’s and Cindy says “I was really hoping to see you guys here today!”


Talk about full circle. Doug spent most of last Sunday in the hospital, 2 hours of which were unconscious. We were told last week during the ordeal, that he had a lung removed due to cancer, but we didn’t know that it was only his top lobe, but what happened last week was he had a seizure and the remaining par tof his lung had collapsed. He just couldn’t get enough air to function so his body just shut down. Doug was a pretty good sport about everything, giving us details about the amazing care he received in emergency and with EMT’s. We chatted for a bit, Kim said her hellos to the dogs and then it was hugs and off and running.


Doug goes in tomorrow for a heart monitor tomorrow but it looks like he’ll be fine! That was a good day.

The rest of the 17k run was pretty nice, a bit hilly but the views more than made up for the extra work it took to get up there. Other than that, not much!CIMG0113

Oh, Welcome new ‘Cool Kid’, Sue. Man do I look like a Gigantasaur next to her… yeesh.

  1. Good for you. It's not very often that you get that kind of closure on a random encounter. And it has a happy ending because Doug seems to be doing okay.

    This "Canada" you speak of sounds too good to be true. **sigh** It's like a fairy tale land ...
