Pre-Surgery "Stay-cation" in the Keys via RV



  • Howdy Mary,

    We just had a wonderful (albeit expensive) dinner at a Brazilian restaurant. 16 different meats to try, veggies, shrimp, beer and a B52 coffee to close it all out. Oh, sooooo stuffed! (G) We head back tomorrow early afternoon.

    Also went on a clothes shopping spree. I haven't shopped for a while, and needed too, so the money I didn't spend smoking became my clothes fund! (G) The hubby reminded me that I am 2 weeks and 2 days out from surgery now. Hehehe..lol, he's keeping more of an eye on it than I am time wise! (G)

    Just looked for you in chat, didn't see ya. I hope to catch ya in there soon. *HUGZ*

    Lumbar MRI...Mine still took around 35 or 40 minutes (no contrast used for my lumbar). I was fairly comfortable, and was watching tv to divert my attention, so it wasn't that bad. Hopefully you too will find it isn't too bad overall.

    Monday I go through all the testing for MS, ALS - so it will be nice to have that behind me once and for all. Then pulmonary Wednesday, and surgical clearance from my GP, and Full body and spine NCS/EMG next week...then hopefully done being a pin cushion until surgery. (G)

  • We try to come down here 2 to 3 times a year for little vacations, more often the upper Keys (Gilbert's) for dinner here and there. We've already decided once I'm mobile again and comfortable, back down for a mini... :)

    Where in Florida did you use to live? I lived in Jacksonville for a little over 7 years, and now here in South Florida going on 15 years...The weather hasn't been classic south Florida, but a far cry better than the predicted (yucky/wet) weather was suppose to be. So it turned into a 'win-win' all around.

    Still kicking around the camp ground. We've been watching 'tent' campers breaking camp and getting all packed up. Some of these families have the whole camping 'break camp, break down camp' down to a tea! Wow!!
