Also, my dear friend, Peggy, does not have a blog per se, but she does have an awesome website -- check it out at http://www.rv-living-unlimited.com/. You will find a ton of valuable information there.
WOW -- we have been soooo busy since we arrived in Little Rock on September 16 -- three weeks tomorrow. Time does not stand still! If you remember, we had probs with our MH slides and dumping hydraulic fluid. On Monday, the 19th, we were up early and drove 30-45 minutes to River City RV where they made a new hydraulic hose and had us on our way in a few hours.
The following day, the 20th, I had a doc appointment for the dreaded yearly mammogram. After spending several hours getting several mammograms and an ultrasound, the radiologist reminded me of an area in my right breast we had been watching since '08 -- he said there were changes in the area. AND in addition, I had a new area in my left breast. In light of this, he suggested I have each area biopsied. I left his office and went directly upstairs where I saw Dr Hagans -- a surgeon who specializes in breasts only...boobs is all he does. I have been seeing Dr Hagans for 15+ years and trust him explicitly. I was ushered right into a room where Dr Hagans told me we could biopsy both areas, OR he could just remove the masses. I quickly opted to proceed with lumpectomies. My entire thought process was why have a biopsy and maybe have to return for lumpectomies. I had the worse mammo last year in North Carolina -- they are not pleasant by any means, but I came out of that office in tears and told my husband I would be returning to Dr Hagans this year and I am so thankful I did. Because I am on an aspirin regimen for my heart, I had to wait at least a week for the surgery.
In the meantime, we were busy-busy seeing and visiting with friends and family and eating, eating, eating! We had dinner with Lisa and Tyrone at Texas Roadhouse.
I worked with Lisa at Little Rock AFB -- she was active duty and I was the court reporter. She is now retired from the USAF and works for the VA.
We had dinner the night we arrived in Little Rock with my brother and sister-in-law -- Jerry and Suzanne. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic:( I will get one before we leave here!
We had dinner with Mary Beth and Don as well, but no pic of that -- HOWEVER, a pic of these two are on the way. Mary Beth and I have been friends since the 5th grade and Don came into the picture in junior high school. We have been very dear friends for many years.
On Monday, the 26th, we visited with my friend, Clara, and her husband, Michael. Clara and I have been friends also since the 5th grade. She also visited us in Branson.
Tomorrow we have fellow-bloggers, Jim and Gayle, coming to the park for the weekend, so stay tuned -- there's more to come.
