Cajun crab, sausage,shrimp and corn on the cob….yummmy!!

Funny but fulltime rving isn’t always nomadic or glamorous. Things happen along the way. David says rving plans are written in jello!!

After thought……

It has been quite a 2 weeks 1st Peanut has been having issues with excessive thirst and peeing. That was a $300 trip then there is me getting admitted to hospital. Well fast forward I am on the mend but Peanut continues to be incontinent. So back to the emergency vets we go, I called over 20 vets and no one is taking on new patients or they are booked out till August. Phew…..

Chillin

Well he is 13 years old and has incontinence. So we are finishing the antibiotics and have added medicine for bladder toning. Hope for Peanuts sake it works….

Today I went to the md and got a clean bill of health. Blood work and chest x ray in 6 weeks. Then a physical before we leave for Arizona.

I was looking out the backyard and saw the bunny!!

The clouds today… different

Tomorrow on Wednesday we are heading out to my youngest son’s house.

On the way to Adam’s house I picked up our new RV sign. I just love it!!!

It has been relatively quiet week with me getting some needed rest. I’m just thankful that we were in our home area when all things broke loose and not on the road in East Pucky. 😁

Life goes on..

I looked out the window and behold a chip monk eating my plants grrrr.

Friday night I started to feel wiped out with a headache. I slept all day Saturday and the finally when my temperature went to 102 David brought me to the emergency room. I had an elevated White blood count and a Urinary tract infection. They also feel I have a mild case of pneumonia. So they are going to keep me for a couple of days.

I ended staying for 4 days. The nurses and nursing aides were so wonderful!I would like to say athank you to all the staff of 4W at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua New Hampshire.

I want you to know that is really frightening to be sick and have to walk into an empty emergency room, you feel so alone. Thank goodness for a very sensitive RN who calmly talked to me and explained everything. She was knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. I felt more at ease by the time I had to be transferred to the 4W floor.

I can’t say enough good things about the floor staff. They too were knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. They met all my needs sometimes even before I asked.

Ahhh starting to feel better
Swelling in my face occurred since I’ve been home

The 1st day of summer just passed. I have been kept quite busy by helping my 87 years young Mother. Doing yard work and helping her getting rid alot of collected items that no longer function. Phew!!! I have been able to visit in between cleaning, hubby and I have date days!!! On date days we go exploring the state of NH. Funny I’ve lived most of my life in NH and are still discovering new things about it!

Last night we took my Mom out to eat. We went to the Athen in Manchester NH. It was wonderful and the food was great! Yummmy!

David and I had lamb garnished
Mom had an Athen salad

Last year we bought our granddaughter a big bike for her birthday. Well the bike had an accident when it got ran over. So she has been riding this very small bike. It just happened that I went to the Marketplace on line and found a bike. So happiness is seeing our granddaughter smile!! πŸ₯°
