'16/#39 The Jello Is Starting To Set

The main reason we came back to Florida was to get Mary's knee checked out after she hurt it in Kentucky. We have been to a couple of doctor appointments and had an MRI done and the verdict is in. No surprise, surgery is in her future. This is something we have been through before, so we know what to expect. If all goes as planned we could be back on the road by the beginning of November.

Now comes the fun part! Trying to get all the doctors, the lab, and the surgery center all coordinated so that the pre-op planning doesn't take longer than the recovery is always a challenge. So many medical professionals as well as the insurance companies don't seem to understand that us every day people have demands on our time also. I have said in the past that if doctors and hospitals had to pay us our hourly wages every time they made us wait they would find a way to be more efficient and empathetic about the needs placed on our time! Well wish us luck.

While we have been in Florida we have had a chance to spend time with our kids and grandkids. Hopefully we will get to see some of our friends before we leave also. We will also make a trip to the east coast to see Uncle Don and Grace. We can't come to Florida and not stop in to see those who are so dear to our hearts.

It is a relief knowing that surgery will fix Mary, but she is kinda bummed out about it. She wishes she could just be well and get back to whatever adventures the road holds for us. For now we will make the best of things and try to see as many people as we can while we are here in our home in Seminole Florida because.....

Home is where we park it,
Frank and Mary
