Billings, MT High 79 Low 48
I still have some posts from TRNP but I wanted to update you on some changes in our plans. At this point – it’s what plans???? As Ginny said, we might just as well bag this summer and try again next year.
Medora was not originally in our plans but we found out we had some mail that needed to be forwarded to us. Vaughn offered his mailbox and while we were waiting we decided to head over to Medora. We went back to Glendive on Tuesday to get our mail. Jim dropped me off at the laundromat and went to see Vaughn.
Vaughn was not feeling good and Jim tried to get him to go to the hospital but he has no health insurance and figured he just had indigestion. Wrong. He felt worse that night and finally went to the hospital. They flew him to Billings and he definitely had heart attacks (more than one). He is scheduled for by-pass surgery today.
We decided to come back to Billings to be with him for a few days until he’s on the road to recovery. So we are now sitting in our son’s driveway once again.
This morning we received the terrible news that Jim’s sister, Ginny, had passed away. She and her husband live in Miami, FL but Ginny has been in a nursing home for several years due to a stroke. Steve has decided not to have a service for her so Jim won’t be making a trip back to Florida.
We had thought we would leave Billings on Sunday but the wind is supposed to be blow mightily this week-end so our planned departure date is Monday – unless something else happens. I’m hanging onto that eraser.
