Back in Conroe. . .come see us!


After the two surgeries on Monday,
the doctor’s appointments on Wednesday,
and spending a couple of nights at my brother’s place
after my sis in law’s surgery,
(just to be sure there was someone there if she needed anything,)
we arrived back to the motorhome Friday evening,
knowing that we would spend Saturday fixing a water leak
that we had discovered before we left. . .fun!  Ha. . .

If you’re just dying to know all about it,
you can see the pics and tales of woe here. . .

Dave leaves tomorrow to teach a class. . .yaaa. . .
so I will spend the week doing Lord only knows what. . .
but I’m sure I’ll have no problem staying busy. . .
Not sure how I ever had time for a full time job,
raising two kids, teaching Sunday School,
and the million other things we always had going on. . .

Goodness. . .I sure enjoy not having all that on my plate. . .(big smile!)

‘til next time,
Janice and Dave

Evans Escapades–What a Week–Already!

Goodness. . .this is turning out to be quite a week.. .

and it’s only Tuesday. . .

 

My hubby, and my sister in law just happened to have

surgeries scheduled on the same day. . .what are the chances?

 

Dave’s trip to the dermatologist last week revealed a

sqamous cell skin cancer on his left temple. . .

they wanted it taken care of right away,

and sent him to a plastic surgeon in Houston to have it removed.

All is well. . .benign. . .he’s sporting a big ole bandage on the side of his head. . .

 

My sis in law’s surgery, much more severe. . .

a benign tumor on her pituitary gland. . .causing massive headaches. . .

actually requiring brain surgery to remove it. . .scary stuff. . .

but she came through with flying colors. . .

we give thanks to the Lord for His hand of protection in guiding the surgeons hands. . .

we will go up to check on her and my brother this morning. . .

 

Tomorrow, we drive to Silsbee TX for our favorite visit of the year. . .

annual check ups. . .ugh! 

Medical check ups are probably the one negative to full time travel. . .

not every doctor will do only annual check ups. . .

most want you to report back every six months. . .

almost an impossibility, when you are traveling thousands of miles away. . .

has anyone else found this to be the case?

I’m sure a lot of it has to do with blood pressure issues. . .and the liabilities of that. . .

but other than the elevated BP we are both relatively healthy,

with no real medical issues to speak of. . .thank the Lord. . .


 

Soooo. . .after visiting the doc. . .we will probably travel to Orange TX

and spend the rest of the week at my brother’s place. . .

I’m sure my sis will need someone to be there with her for a few days. . .

 

And, that’s it. . .exciting week. . .right?

Til next time,

Janice and Dave
