Sheryl and Kaileigh left this morning for Kansas to visit an ailing aunt, they both wanted to spend time with her before the inevitable happens and she is gone forever. It's been really hard for Sheryl, as her and her aunt are very close. We all know it's the cycle of life, but that doesn't make it any easier.
Now for the Good New's. Kevin finally got in to see the neurosurgeon about his lower back and neck. After an examination and reviewing the MRI's it looks like there is no permanent damage to either area, and nothing so out of whack that any serious damage would occur in the future......WoooHooo!!! However it looks like I'll just have to deal with the occasional back going out....boy this getting older sucks!!! The bad news in all of this is, we will not be able to make it down to Miami for the birth of our newest grandbaby, time and finances just won't let it happen.
So there it is, A Celebration, Bad News and Good News all wrapped up in one post. Let's just hope good news will always prevail over the bad for a while. That's it for now, see you fine folks back here next time.

This last week, I managed to catch a cold from somewhere and it's had me down pretty hard. Being the good husband that I am, and sharing everything with Sheryl...........well you can see where this is going. Yup, she is now down and I'm finally getting over it, thank goodness. While were on the subject of medical news, I was supposed to have my Neurosurgeon appointment today, but they called a couple of days ago and cancelled until next week (glad I'm not in dire straits!!!) Good news is, both my neck and back are doing much better, of course I've been taking it as easy as I can, which is pretty hard for me to do. So another week of twiddling my thumbs unti I can find out just what is going on, and if it needs to be fixed or not.
Ahhh well, such as the way things are, so I'll hold down the fort and see you fine folks back here shortly.

Just thought we share our find with you, it makes our campsite just a little nicer and more inviting. So if you ever see us around, feel free to stop by and peck on the door, as were always up for meeting new folks. Take care for now and we'll see you out there!!!

We did get to use the kayaks in Arkansas before my back went out, however now they will be a couple of 12' paperweights until the neurosurgeon decides the best course of action to fix the problem. We are still waiting for an appointment with him, he just got all the MRI results so hopefully Monday we can get an appointment scheduled and get this show on the road.
Another project down, (with the help of pain pills), so until next time we'll see you right back here soon!!!

We are really happy with the way everything turned out. Another one of Sheryl's ideas, was to paint an accent wall and apply decals. You can see it in the first picture, we also painted the back wall in the bedroom the same color, so when you are looking towards the rear of the rig, it ties everything together. I think she should go into the business of RV interior designer, as good as she is at it!!!
Another installment down and more to come, so check back in a couple of days to see whats next!!!

Well, along with my lower back, my neck has reared it's ugly head again (or my head, as it were). My lower back was the reason for returning to OKC, wanted to have it looked at to ensure no permanent damage could be done. That being said, now my neck, back and arm pain seems to have come back with a vengeance. This is the same injury that kept us here at the beginning of the year, but rectified itself after 3 months and just before surgery. With it coming back again, I feel the doc will recommend surgery again, which means fusing a couple of the bones in my neck. I have an MRI scheduled for Wed and then an appointment with the neurosurgeon sometime next week to go over every thing. If surgery is needed, it will mean hanging around OKC for 3 or so months as that what was said last time. We're hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. I'll post an update as soon as we know something. Next up, more remodeling of the motorhome, so take care and see you next time......................
