A Tough Trip

Tough in the sense that I’ve not felt too good because of the drive down here, and along the way I called my dad from my hotel room and found that he’d had a nasty fall. His legs went wobbly, he got some nasty bruises. I’m worried, our entire family is worried!

My sister flew up to Michigan yesterday to be with him, he’s stable right now but can hardly walk. No stroke, no heart issues so the reasons why remain to be discovered. Dad is 91 years young and never slows down, you can’t keep a good man down!

So here I am stuck in Florida until Saturday when I have a non-stop flight home to Las Vegas, waiting to find out the test results. Meanwhile, it’s bloody sticky here and I hate it! Amazing that I lived here in the 1990’s. Take me home to my Mojave Desert!

here are some random iPhone photos from today, they are not processed as I don’t have my MacBook, I’ll try to resize them for you. I hope you’ve had a good week so far my friends!

  1. Hey John, I’m on the road traveling for past week and have gotten behind on blogging, so now catching up. I hope and pray your father is okay and feeling better. 🙏

    • Thank you Donna. Dad is better, still wobbly legs but doctor believes it was an adjustment to his meds that caused the legs. He’s walking better with the walker now. I’m in the hospital. I earned another kidney stone. Hurts like hell but have pain meds. Procedure tomorrow for a stent. I fly home Saturday finally. I do NOT like Florida. Humidity is killing me! Traffic is worse than Vegas in my opinion.

      • Glad to hear Dad is better but, oh no, you’re in the hospital?! Ouch!! Prayers for successful surgery, John. Yes, ‘our’ east coast humidity sucks big time! Safe travels home. 🙏

    • Thanks Richard! Dad is walking better now, doctors think an adjustment to his meds made his legs go all wobbly. I’m in the hospital with kidney stone number two. Hope to fly home Saturday.

    • He’s doing better now, doctors think an adjustment to his meds caused the wobbly legs. I’m in the hospital here, have kidney stone number 2. Should be home Saturday. I miss Las w! I despise the humidity and traffic here!
