LIfe's Ups and Downs.....

Yesterday was just full of bad news......my Mom called early to let me know that my step father was going back into surgery.  It seems fluid had collected around the first surgery site and was causing problems with swallowing and eating.  I spent yet another long day at the hospital, but the good news is the surgery went well and we are hoping once the swelling goes down his swallowing will improve.  Right now he can't even eat or drink and is relying on IVs for all his nutrition and fluids.  NOT FUN!

As some of you may remember, last summer we were fortunate enough to have a dear friend offer us his property to park our fiver on.  It was so very generous and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  Beautiful country....lots of peace and quiet.  WE loved it.  Got the call just a few days ago that they are selling the property.....called to see if we were interested.   We had to pass.....as we are looking to settle (eventually) in Arizona.  I know they will have no problems selling and we wish them all the best....BUT...a little sad too.  We will miss them and their little piece of paradise they so generously shared with us!

And...finally....some RV friends just lost one of their sweet fur babies to cancer.  My heart and prayers go out to them.....

Life is full of ups and downs.....I'm ready for a few UPS now!

  2. Good for you guys in deciding to settle in Arizona one day. So much to see & do in the wild & woolly South-West. It is the downs sometimes that really make us appreciate the ups when they come along.
