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
