DUI on my bike? read that right
Can you get a DUI on your bike on a country road ?
Yes,..I know you really can get a DUI on a bike,,I wont mention any names..LOL
This person also hit a deer on his bike, Not funny...

But I honestly just had a 1/2 Vicodin and 3 ibuprofen in me.
So I'm sure there were no problems there.
But , I'm just saying...

I was outside...The weather was beautiful.
In pain, but eyed Toms bike. Yes Toms bike.
My bike has not been out of the garage this summer.

This all started June 18 with a bad mammogram after finding "the lump"
and in Ohio it was just finally getting warm and stopped raining
When I was diagnosed June 23rd and my world became Doctors appointments and surgeries.
Not bike rides....

So I am eyeballing Toms bike...Thinking I WANT to ride that bike.
Can I do it? Can I ride that bike?
(with visions of the little guy on "Laugh In" where the little guy falls over sideways on his tricycle)
Do it Debbi....this little voice said.
Then I said to Tom I am going for a ride on your bike.. Do you think I'll be ok?
Tom said try it..if its to painful , just stop and turn around.

I felt pain when I put my arms up on the handlebars.
But took off.
When I got on the road I felt so free...It felt so good to ride the bike.
I'm doing it...I thought... I could do this for hours....
For just a little bit I was healthy again , and didn't think of breast cancer.

I had left Tom standing in the driveway up by the house.
I rode about a half mile down the road to see a neighbor, but she wasn't home.
As I turned around to come back I could see a spot in the road.
It was Tom...
I'm sure he was wondering what in the world I was
He never expected me to be able to go so far. Neither did I.
As I got closer..He yelled car , so I moved over .. and I had to laugh.
Wouldn't it be funny to get a DUI on a bike?
That may be my only bike ride this year.
But going into chemo today , it still makes me smile as I sit here.
And maybe...just maybe...I'll do good and get to ride my bike with Tom before the cold Ohio winters hit again.

Think of me...wish me luck , that I do good with this chemo today and can.....


  1. I'm glad to hear you went for a ride. Sometimes we just need to take a break from cancer crap...

  2. I agree with Caroline. I nice bike ride is very soothing.

    Good luck with chemo. I hope and pray it all goes well. You are one tough woman.

  3. You are just too funny. LMBO. You made my day. I hope your chemo goes really well. My mom never had any problems with hers. Keep hanging in there and stay strong. My prayers are with you constantly. May God bless you and hold you tight.

  4. Good for you for getting on that bike! Try to get outside a little each day, even if you are not feeling too well. There's just something about the beauty of God's creation that really helped me through the dark days of chemo. Hope all goes well for you--I'll be waiting for an update!

    Will be thinking of you! Keep your chin up, you can do this.


  7. Way to go, Debbi! You just keep getting right back up there... I'm glad you got out there and went for it - your spirit needed that freedom even if only for a few minutes. Yayness for you! I have been thinking of you and others who have been leaving me messages and you have inspired me to do something.....I am making a "HOPE Calendar" for 2012. I am taking local survivors here, taking their pictures, using hope quotes, and then in another week or so, making the calendar. Wish me luck. Maybe if it turns out great I can send YOU one to check off your days.... Big hug to you - praying for you everyday. Give chemo hell! Arla - An unexpected journey.

  8. Way to go, Debbi! I love that you did this. You are going to do great. I'm praying for you tonight. Wishing you many more rides this fall.
