Rolling on the Road with Her Standard Poodle
She’s on a roll. She’s 90-years old and was told only days after her husband’s death by her doctor that she is also sick with limited time.
Instead of accepting treatment, she decided to hit the road with her son, daughter-in-law, and their Standard Poodle, Ringo, in their RV.” I’m having the time of my life! I’m done with doctors,” she said on her Facebook page, Driving Miss Norma.
The woman’s positivity; her energetic spirit and enthusiasm have surprised even her doctor. The Facebook page, Driving Miss Norma, recounts a conversation between them:
Here was her doctor’s response to Norma’s declining treatment:
“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!”
Indeed – Norma and Poodle are letting the good times roll!
