G'day all, been awhile since I've posted a single thing. Been very busy, and with the forum changes that went into effect at the same time, havn't been able to get on the comp much. Last I posted, was about not being able to make the owners rally due to health problems. We so wish we could have been there! Missed it and y'all terribly!! typing one handed here so bear with me. Mary went to s.c. to see her kids prior to us bringing my mom home, and before bad weather set in, had a grand mal seizure while there and was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. has had operation. underwent radiation, chemo, and now receiving trial therapy. needless to say we had to postpone my moms homecoming indefinately. bummer! Got the rv all wrapped up and rigged for the cold northeast, went through 4 - 5 heated hoses and think we finally hit on a winning solution to frozen water pipes @ zero-dark-thirty! trying to take care of mary, she has seizures periodacally still. one handed...... dogs had to go out at 0200 one am, so slipped on slippers, (stupid, i know) took 'em out and slipped on ice and broke left wrist. so now, with limited use of her left side and limited use of mine we make a fine couple! the blind leading the blind, i say! we are ok and handling as best we can, keeping our spirits as high as we can! what's really bumming us out is the fact that we are grounded, and it's freakin' COLD out! keep thinking of some way to make the next rally...... but....... mary is already planning time south to see her kids and family, then there's family in texas too......... oh well. we waited to get on the road once and we'll wait again, we know it'll happen! all y'all take care noe, y'hear? that is all.
