New Surgery Date

Finally heard from my doctors PA and it looks like it is a go for my colon surgery on Oct 20th. We will drive over to Shreveport in the motorhome on the 18th and stay at Diamond Jacks RV park. This way Sandy won't have so far to travel to the VA Hospital. I will check in on the 19th.

I had an appointment with the Podiatry Clinic on Friday 14th. While there we dropped by the pharmacy to pick up my Lovenox shots which I’ll take before my surgery. I've never had a pedicure done by a professional but it was great. Don't know why I waited so long. I guess it's that man thing.

After we finished up with VA we decided to drive over to the Diamond Jacks Casino and check it out. We've stayed there before but wanted to check the exit we would take for the casino. Glad we were in the Jeep as when we exited we ended up in the wrong lane that would not allow us to go straight into the casino parking lot. Our only recourse was to turn left as the right lane was a turn left or go straight. I looked to the lane to our right the lane where we should have been and there were no cars. I told Sandy that it was safe to go straight and off we went when the light turned green. We made it then Sandy said.....guess what there was a policeman two cars behind us and I hope he doesn't come after us.  As we entered the parking lot I saw the police car turning left. Yippee!

To our surprise the park wasn't that full especially this being a Friday before the weekend. We decided to go ahead and make our reservation for next week arriving on the 18th. On our way back to Lone Star Sandy's brother James called and wanted us to meet him and his wife Bev for dinner at the Texas Roadhouse in Longview. What great fellowship and wonderful meal we had together. When it came time to pay James would not let us pay and said this was a late birthday treat. Thanks James.

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
