One Month Ago Today

Yes, one month ago today I was in ICU VA Shreveport starting the road to recovery from my colon surgery. My strength is gradually getting better and I'm able to walk a little further each day. Believe it or not I've also done several chores around the motorhome.

imageOne being with Sandy's help we winterized our fresh water hookup by wrapping the conduit stub up and the 25' fresh water hose with
Insulation tubing . So, we should be good to go for winter. I also took my electric leaf blower and blew off leaves around the patio and yard. This project will be on going for a while as we've not had that first frost and the oak trees are still full of leaves. We are still under a burn ban so we won't be burning leaves any time soon.

My last visit to see my surgeon was this past Tuesday and he was pleased with my progress. In fact my next visit won't be until after the Thanksgiving holidays. Sandy is a good nurse and continues to dress and pack the incision area.

I read where Retired Rod is having to go back for another procedure.
I hope I'll be able to avoid that as this has to be a bummer for him particularly since he was doing so good in his road to recovery. Hopefully it will go well and he will recover quickly for their trip to Arizona. We are thinking of you Rod.

There is still one thing that I just do not enjoy doing and that is riding in the Jeep. It has no mercy on my stomach and just beats me to death. Sometimes I think Sandy picks out those spots in the road on purpose to punish me for not being a good patient. Naw….. not really! She goes out of her way to avoid the real bad spots. It's just the nature and ride of a Jeep.

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.

  1. Hi Weldon. I hope your recovery continues to go well!

    If I recall, you two do business on the road setting up at trade shows? I begin my full-time journey next spring and plan on doing the same. I was wondering if you could answer a question for me...
