I was sorting through some old papers yesterday and found this nostalgic birthday card my late sister created for my 73rd birthday. In June of 2019 I set out from Le Puy to Santiago and when I reached Hontanas I received a text message that my sister was in the ICU in Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. I rushed back to the US to find her in a coma and she died about a week later without speaking a word. I never envisioned that Camino might be my last and final Camino but during 2020 I have suffered from further deterioration to the nerves in my right foot and leg from neuropathy and my recent physical therapy is leading me to believe I will be walking with a cane or a walker in the months to come. I loved my Camino experiences over the past 10 years and pray I will get to return some day.
