The temperature and humidity have been up in the uncomfortable range for several days now, but yesterday I don’t think it got much above 80° and the humidity was not too bad. A perfect day to get some mowing and bush hogging done. So wouldn’t you know it? We both had doctor’s appointments in the […]

Not A Fun 24 Hours

Sunday night and Monday were not the best 24 hours in my life. In fact, they were no fun at all. About bedtime on Sunday evening, I started experiencing some difficulty in urinating and it continued all night, along with a lot of pain, and blood when I went to the bathroom. The first thing […]

Yesterday was a long day for Terry. She had a checkup at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida as part of the continuing follow-up for radiation enteritis caused by the treatment needed to save her life when she was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer in 2000. Back then, her first oncologist gave her six […]

I figured by now you’re probably tired of hearing about our adventures in Hurricane Ian and the aftermath. It’s kind of like old people talking about their medical issues. Nobody really cares, right? So today, let’s talk about something new. Namely, medical issues. Last week Terry had a CT scan at the Mayo Clinic in […]

As I told you a while back, a recent CT scan showed that I had experienced a small stroke at some point, probably back in 2019, when I had a dizzy episode and tingling in my head that lasted for several hours. Since then I have undergone a bunch of other tests, including another MRI, […]

Thank you to everyone who sent good wishes for my appointment with the neurologist yesterday. We still really don’t know much more than I did when we went in, except that the headaches I have been having are not signs of another stroke. The nurse practitioner we talked to said that strokes take things away, […]

A Rough Few Days

It’s been a rough few days for us, which is why I have been re-posting old blogs about our travels as fulltime RVers for the last couple of days. But I do that occasionally anyhow because lots of new readers missed all of those travels and tell me they like hearing about them. And some […]

First Time In A Year

Terry had an appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville yesterday afternoon for a CT scan, a follow-up to her appointment she had last week. This is just routine and something that will continue due to the intense radiation damage she suffered during her cancer treatment 20 years ago. Her appointment was at 3 o’clock, […]

Okay, we all know that’s not true. The thought of crossing the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan and the Astoria-Megler Bridge in Oregon still terrifies me. But the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay? It’s a piece of cake. We crossed it twice a week ago today when I had to go to the Bay Pines […]
