Today is the day ~ it's finally here

The day has finally come for my knee replacement surgery... I know I'll be better off for it and soon I'll be running around all over the place getting into my regular mischief! I am very confident with my doctor and his staff because he is rated as one of the counties best... He uses the latest in technology and has one of the fastest recovery rates in the area. I will be in the hospital for a total of 5 days and will be returning to the motorhome after I am released. My honey will become chief cook & bottle washer and my homecare nurse... He can do it!!! Also I will have a nurse that stops in a few days a week and therapy that comes 3 days a week to the motorhome and does it there. They delivered all my equipment yesterday and I'll tell you if you think there was no room before in Tassie well it's a little crowded now for sure!
I am not taking my computer to the hospital so I won't be posting til I get back home and situated.
See ya on the flip side~

The BIG day approaches ~ biting nails

Welcome Welcome to Levonne @ A Camp Host's Meanderings: An RV Adventure and Rick & Orinda @ Fulltime RVing with Rick & Orinda. Thanks for coming by and joining us on our adventures. Go visit their wonderful blogs and see what they are up to on their journey.


Tomorrow is the BIG day ~ I knew it was coming but really didn't think about it much. I have had this appointment for months and it really needs to be done and I know I'll be much better after the pain of recovery is over but I am still worried. So many people have told me their horror stories and I am hoping that stories they are. Luckily for me I do have a high threshold for pain and I recover pretty fast.



I have my hospital bag packed with all I think I need. Today I am going to have my toes painted and my hair styled. A dentist appointment to get my teeth cleaned... I'll be squeaky clean from the tip of my head to my toes. Later this afternoon the rehab place is delivering the equipment I will be needing the first few weeks after I return home. Walker, Crutches, a Ice Compression machine, A CPM machine (to exercise my leg twice a day) and a portable toilet...WHAT? Portable TOILET!!! Really where am I going to put all of this stuff in our Tassie???

Well I am ready and counting down...

Happy Thanksgiving and other stuffing

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian Friends ~
I wish you a peaceful and filling day!



Today is a blustery rainy day and it is expected to continue the whole day. We just finished our week watching our twin grandsons (5) and I can tell you there is a reason God doesn't allow older women to have children... it is tiring. Even though they go to kindergarten during the day it goes by fast... All in all we had a great time with them and enjoyed every single moment. I miss them but glad to be home resting now. LOL LOL Here they are making mini personal pizzas for dinner one night. We made them with grand biscuits rolled out ~ Alfredo sauce ~ mini pepperonis ~ and mozzarella & cheddar cheese. They turned out so good and the kids had fun making them. It is a fun way to involve them with the cooking~



We have been really busy getting caught up on doctor appointments, shopping, visiting friends, watching the twins, and getting ready for my surgery on October 12th. I will be having a total knee replacement and it seems like every Doctor I have ever went to needs to see me and release me for the surgery. Cha~ching! I will try to keep you updated on my knee surgery while in the hospital for the 5 days ~ if you are on FB my family will be updating my progress. Just send me a friend request in the next 2 days and I will add you to my list on Facebook.

Last night we went to our favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner ~ We love it there because not only does it have a wonderful buffet but a Mongolian grill which we really like a lot. When we arrived back home there was a beautiful double rainbow... it was hard to get a great picture but you can see where my pot of gold lies... Life is Good!

Back at Our Home Park

First I want to say welcome to my newest followers Susan, Gypsy Boho @ and Debbie, Duane, Bo & Laska @ See Ya When We Get There. Thanks for coming by and visiting our adventures. Hope I hear from you often....

We have been home for 2 weeks and we are back at our home park Rainbow Village in Largo, Florida. We spent the first few days with my daughter and the grandsons and then back to the park. We are accustom to this park ~ know a lot of the people ~ love the pool and activities at the park but we would rather be in a not so congested area. Don't get me wrong this is a great place (Pinellas County) for a visit but we just like a little less people and traffic. However we have been coming back to this park now for 7 years.

This is where I have lived all my life and it has beautiful beaches and fun things to see & do. Also it is centrally located to visit many of the GREAT places around the state which I will be posting all about for you to see. I have changed ~ not my hometown ~ my family lives here and that is definitely a plus. As a matter of fact we are watching our twin grandsons (5) for a week while my daughter and her honey go to Vegas. That will be fun but exhausting ~ LOL







Now that we are back we are catching up on all of our doctor and dentist appointments. On October 12th I will be having Knee Replacement Surgery at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater. My left knee is really bad and I decided to get the surgery now not waiting til I am older and can't get around like my dad did. We love to hike and walk and it has really been interfering with that. So next year when we go on our trip up to Nova Scotia I will be able to hike anywhere I want!

Hope you all are doing well and having fun!
