Fred, to her family doctor last Friday. Dr. Dillon asked that I spend today with Barb to make sure that the pre-op preparation is done properly.
I arrived here at 7:45 this morning, and have been badgering Barb ever since to make sure that all steps of the prep are carried out per the doctor's orders. It's safe to say that I'm not very popular with Barb right now; she may even think I'm a sadist!!! We have about 2 more hours of Barb drinking a nasty-tasting large volume of fluids; then, she can try to get some sleep before her early-morning wake up alarm.
Barb is the widow of my ex-husband's brother, who died many years ago at a very young age. It was Barb and Fred who first introduced me to RV-ing. They've been long-time RV-ers, beginning with a Eurovan, a Chalet, and now a Jayco Grayhawk. Most of their RV-ing has been in the western states and Mexico; even though they aren't any longer taking long trips, they still head from Redding to the California coast several times a year, often to escape the heat of this area in the hot months, which can be from late March into November! Thankfully, today was mild, the thermometer not even reaching 80F. Yippee!
