Barbara has been diagnosed with a colon mass and will have surgery this coming Tuesday. I'm helping both of them with this immediate preoperative period and will stay with them for a few days when she's discharged from the hospital. I happy to be able to use my nursing skills to help them through this difficult and confusing time. I've known Barb since I was 16-years old; she more like the sister I never had than a sister-in-law; now, as a 79-year old, she can use some help with her medical care as it's very confusing to her - and Fred.
I'm sure I've mentioned before in this blog about the extreme heat in this, the uppermost part of California's San Joaquin Valley. Summers are becoming just way too long and unbearable for me; thank goodness, the temperature is now in the upper 70s and low 80s, and dry - very comfortable without having to use air conditioning with all doors and windows closed!
A few photos to share . . .
|Quinn "enjoying" her honeymoon with Mom in Belize|
More on that later! God has a great design for her.
Ours is to find out what it is! She is just as beautiful on
the inside as on the outside.
|Lovely daughter, Kari, enjoying some shade on the beach|
in Belize. She's a Rock of Gibraltar for her family.
|Sunset yesterday after a wonderfully mild 78F in Cottonwood.|
Jeff and family have a small "ranch" so no nearby neighbors to interrupt
the quiet and serenity.
|This may be the last photo I'll have of my adventuring RVs and Smart Car.|
I've loved traveling and meeting all my RV-adventuring friends; but, now
it's time to go on to other types of adventures.
