If you’ve been reading awhile you know that sometimes this can be eventful. This was one of those years!
We went to Tennessee first. I got to meet my boyfriends son and grandkids for the first time. We got to celebrate a birthday and then the Fourth of July. It was fun to get to know everyone and to see their traditions. Sadly they had to put their horse down while we were there. They knew the time was approaching but the excitement of the fireworks resulted in the horse being knocked down and unable to stand up. It was a sad day.
We had our motorcycle with us. We got out for a short ride. What beautiful countryside. I ended up hyperextending my knee. I managed the pain with ibuprofen and ice. I tried to walk down the steps of the camper like a regular staircase. Bad choice. My age is really showing!
From there we went to Michigan. We camped in five different places. Only one was a campground. The rest were driveways of friends or family. We enjoyed our visits and did encounter some rain. Was nice to have the air get a scrubbing. While in MI my allergies were so bad that I ended up very congested and dizzy.
We were going to go on to WI and MN but decided to head home. We are new to camping in his camper and trying to figure things out was overwhelming. We left Sunday night and drove a few hours stopping still in MI. We got up in the morning. Still blah and dizzy.
Ray wanted me to start off driving which I was ok with. I went to trade places with him and woke up on the ground. Ray said he was able to catch me and ease me down. I got my wits about me and drove.
By the next day I knew something was wrong with my right ankle. I have neuropathy and do not really feel anything. We safely got home Tuesday and I called my foot doc. Broken tibia and tibia.
I had surgery on Friday and now have a rod and screws. I’ve already had one cast change and go back on the 17th. Hopefully I’ll graduate to a boot and can put weight on it then. Right now hopping on a walker is difficult.
Not much quilty going on other than planning at the moment. This leads to trouble!
