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
