Tour de France 2008 - Stage 6 Go C!!

What a morning to get to come home to!?! John had called me this morning so I got to catch up while at the hospital. I was hoping to be released this morning and it was great getting home and finding C on the attack up Super Besse! I love the new confidence he has found and it was almost too exciting to watch. He has now moved up into 4th overall. That is so awesome and we're almost a 1/3 way through. Way to go C!!!

At least with the tour going on I know you spend some time relaxing and watching TV. If you need anything call and stay off that bike!

Glad to see you are home.

Hey guys :-)
This got buried in my email inbox. It might take me another day or two to see the bottom of that thing.

Feels good to be home and can't wait to get back to feeling 100%. May take a few more day but each day is better.
