Although she’s 90, and she has some life threatening diagnosis, she decided to stop going to hospitals and see the beauty of the world with her dog instead. Norma is still full of life even after her husband passed away and she knew about her diagnosis.
She did not surrender to any negativity and decided to travel with her son, daughter in low and her dog Ringo, and she stated ” I’m having the time of my life! I’m done with doctors.”
Everyone is surprised with her life loving and energetic soul, even her doctors, and The Facebook page, Driving Miss Norma, narrates some conversations between them.
We explained to the well-meaning doctor and his student that we live in an RV and that we will be taking her wherever she wants to go. He didn’t hesitate to say, “RIGHT ON!” We asked if he thought us irresponsible for this approach. His reply was telling.
“As doctors,” he said, “we see what treatment looks like everyday. ICU, nursing homes, awful side effects and honestly. There is no guarantee she will survive the initial surgery to remove the mass. You are doing exactly what I would want to do in this situation. Have a fantastic trip!”
So, now Norma is having the time of her life with Ringo. She travelled thousands of miles with no intentions to stop soon.
