Nov 29, 2019 - Last night in Arkansas...for a while...
What a whirlwind this visit has been! Doctors, dentist, haircuts, pharmacy visits, a few family visits and finally Thanksgiving with family. Throw in a quick five day trip to Red Bay and it has been busy to say the least...and oh yeah, throw in some truck problems. But now...it is time to head west. Wednesday had us lined up for several things to get accomplished and a majority of those in Little Rock. We were off to Little Rock around 9:00 headed for the dentist and Sue's permanent crown. I dropped her off and headed for Ed's. I had helped...Jump to full entry
Nov 26, 2019 - Back from Red Bay
Sunday we were up and ready to head back to Conway. We were hooked up and pulled out at 9:20 and heading west, leaving Red Bay until next April. We have already booked two of our appointments for the return trip. We will make our third appointment after the first of the year. The weather was comfortable and the drive was pleasant. We stopped for a few minutes at the WalMart in Holly Springs, MS and picked up a few items while we stretched our legs. We then headed on out for Conway. We snacked on the sandwiches Sue had made before we left...Jump to full entry
Nov 19, 2019 - Medical stop...
No report for the last ten days as we have spent this time going to doctors, doctors and more doctors. Then throw in that I have had a brother have a heart attack, an uncle go to the hospital for four days for what turned out to be an "oozing ulcer" and a cousin die in a home fire. It kind of went down like this: Monday of last week I started with the endocrinologist. A1C was 6.6, down from 7.5 six months ago. Yea, keep up the good work. Quick breakfast and back to Conway. Tuesday, it was dentist for both of us. Sue had a cleaning and is...Jump to full entry
Nov 9, 2019 - Biloxi to West Monroe to Conway
Back to Arkansas on Friday after being gone for about two months. We are now settled in Forest Lake MH Community in the same site we were our last two stays. We have learned what we have to do to level quickly in this space, and we get a straight shot at our satellites so we have all the television channels we pay for each month. Thursday we were up and out about 9:15 from our nice warm spot in Biloxi. It was already in the low 70's when we left...of course the humidity was much higher. I had to change after getting everything ready to go...Jump to full entry
Sep 8, 2019 - Now three weeks later...
Our last three weeks have been filled with doing whatever we could to help Beth and Jeff. We have made doctors visits with Beth, made sure the girls got to school (on time) and home from school. On a rare occasion we might have detoured by Sonic to meet the needs of a certain third grader. We have enjoyed doing this on a regular basis and hope we have helped a little. Beth is a lot better now. She suffered a lot after her surgery. She has had swelling, some infection and a lot of pain. We have watched her suffer and worried and prayed a...Jump to full entry
Aug 18, 2019 - And the week that was...
This week has gone by in a blur. A lot going on in a lot of different directions. We spent the early part of the week getting adjusted to the heat...again. After the almost three weeks in Maggie Valley it was a sudden and shocking change. But we prepared to get everything ready to help Beth and Jeff before, during and after her surgery. There is not much to report other than she has had the first surgery. It was very painful for her. Sue spent the night with Beth in the hospital on Thursday night. Noah and I took care of the girls on...Jump to full entry
Aug 12, 2019 - We're Back...
Back to Conway and back to Forest Lake Mobile Home Community and back to the same site we left from a month ago. Oh, and as a little footnote, back to the heat of central Arkansas. We are glad to be back to help Beth, Jeff, Noah, Hannah and Katie through this next step for Beth. We are all focused on total success of her surgeons and all other related medical disciplines involved in her full recovery. Our next few weeks will be prayer, help, more prayer and a little sleep. On Saturday we got up a little earlier than usual and started...Jump to full entry
Jul 16, 2019 - And we are off...no, not yet
Not a lot going on since I posted on the 6th. Last week we were responsible for getting the girls to camp at Lake Nixon in Little Rock. There by a little after 7:30 and picked them up just before 5:00. We managed to get that done, do a little shopping and mostly tried to stay cool...or at least less hot. Saturday the 13th we were off to the Lakewood pool for Hannah's swim meet. She was in five events and in three she posted her best times of the year. With Beth in Pittsburg Sue was recording each event and texting it up to Beth. After her...Jump to full entry
Jul 6, 2019 - Update
Three weeks of living in Conway. Helping where possible with Beth and family. Sue got her stitches out a few weeks ago and is healing. She is still oozing in one spot that may require a return trip to the doctor, but that is still a few days out. We had the truck in the shop for a week, but after $1,400 it is finally starting as it should. Amazing! ! ! Mostly we have tried to help and beat the heat. It is hot in Arkansas in the summer. We are leaving on July 15 and headed for the mountains in Waynesville, North Carolina where we will spend...Jump to full entry
Jun 15, 2019 - Third Catchup and the week that was...
On Sunday the 9th we were up at a reasonable time and preparing to leave Red Bay. A great trip but it was definitely time to leave. And leave we did at about 10:00 a.m.. There were no weather issues so the drive was an easy drive. The opening of I-269 that cuts across from I-22 to I-55 just outside of Memphis is a most welcome addition to the route to and from Red Bay. We were through Memphis just after 12:30 and stopped at the old rest area just west of West Memphis and had sandwiches. Then the last leg to Conway with a quick stop in...Jump to full entry
Jun 12, 2019 - Second Catchup
This post will cover our five days that we spent at Brannon's Custom RV and Chris Berry's. It was a most productive trip. We got a lot of things done to the coach. I will outline most and I have several pictures from the stay at Chris Berry's. This should get us back to Saturday evening the 8th. I will bring the remaining days up to the current date at the next posting. Tuesday morning we were up early. We had to have the Bus at Brannon's by 7:00 a.m. Not a big deal but it was about a seven mile drive to his shop in Vina. So, up at 5:15 and...Jump to full entry
Jun 10, 2019 - First Catchup...
Now that we are back in Conway and have a great internet connection I will try to update the old information and get everyone current on all that has happened and all that is going on currently. I will break up the post into several days so it will not get so long and boring. Tonight's post will cover Thursday the 30th of May thru Monday the 3rd of June. We got back to Conway on Sunday the 9th but by the time we got set up for a one month stay, showered, went by Beth's and then went to dinner, we were exhausted and I could not begin to...Jump to full entry
