Well here we sit in Red Bay, AL, with some good friends, well at least Patsy King is, not sure about Richard, his status changes on any given day (or hour). They left yesterday. Had a great week visiting with them.
Richard has shamed me into updating my blog, hassling me that he often checks. He informed me that the information I just posted on my blog was wrong . That's odd, I informed him I hadn't posted recently.He tried to prove me wrong and showed me the website. Here is the funny part - he was on the wrong blog. So with that said, I knew it was time to update. Ironically, the last post was when we were with him in Canton, TX.
After Canton we made our way to St.Louis. It was to be a trip of Dr. appointments and surgeries. Art was scheduled in May for test and biopsy, which all show great news.
June 2016 saw me getting surgery 2 disk decompression and a spinal fusion at L4 L5. That surgery proved to relieve lots of back and leg pain that I had for years and had failed to respond to steroid injections.
August 2016: Art was so pleased and impressed with my neurosurgeon and my results he decided to get evaluated for his back pain. He had surgery to decompress 2 disk.
September 2016 saw us going to Connecticut to visit with our son and daughter-in-law and to watch the girls for a long weekend so they could attend Arthur''s Naval Academy Reunion in Annapolis, MD
We stopped in Kentucky for more Bourbon tasting and viewing the "Craft" distilleries we had not seen.
We packed lots of activities into that weekend. Pumpkin Patch trip, Stepping Stones visit and of course playing and cooking with Nannie and Grandpa.
We arrived before the girls got home from preschool and sat just inside the back kitchen door where they come in.
Guess they remembered us !!!
