On the road to recovery.

My bride of 45 years is back home.  She was released from the hospital yesterday (Oct 2nd) with a 10 day supply of pain meds.  She is experiencing some pain (even with meds), still has only a small appetite and is pretty tired.  She can walk and climb stairs (into the camper) okay.  Riding in the truck created a modest level of pain from having to sit up and the road motion.  Rosie is a tough “cookie” and is exceptionally healthy.  She should recover faster than the average person out there.

I paid $400 for another month here at the Snake River RV Park.  Even if we don’t stay a full month, it is still better than the $40 nightly rate for full hookups.  If Rosie feels up to it, we will head for the Oregon coast about the 18th or 19th of October.  If we do that, we will skip our first two campground destinations on the central Oregon Coast, but will be able to follow my original travel plan from Cape Blanco State Park southward on 101 to Central California and I-5 to So. Calif. in order to arrive there for our reservations at the Ventura KOA in Santa Paula on November 15th.  If she isn’t up to travel then, we will wait until November 1st, when we are pretty confident she can handle riding in the truck.  They we will go straight south down I-15 to get to Santa Paula.

Many of you have expressed concern and have offered up prayers and good thoughts for her recovery.  We are grateful to all of you for your support.

Rosie,
From one "fallee" to another...take your time to heal properly. We don't have to be in a hurry.

All I can say to you is, "Ouch!"

Take proper care of yourself.

Yikes, get well soon!
It's always fun to see how someone else breaks up their travel expenses. Our situation is a little different since we work while traveling and keep more of a home-base but it's still fun to check it out!
