Jim started feeling better on Tuesday and by Wednesday he was ready to go. To the doctor that is. This time it was for a CAT scan of his lungs. These doctors are really thorough and are going to make sure Jim is ready for surgery before they do it. Won’t know any of the results until the 4th of January.
After he got back from the doctor’s office he was still feeling good so we went to the Escapees Chapter 45 luncheon. While visiting with Jan she mentioned that she had bought a couple of pairs of our favorite shoes at the Easy Spirit Outlet.
I need to explain these shoes. After breaking my ankle and rupturing my Achilles tendon, they put a couple of screws in my ankle. If I wear shoes with an ordinary back of any kind, they rub on those screws and really hurt. I tried wearing clog type shoes but I have a lot of trouble walking in those and my feet and legs would cramp.
At the Gypsy Journal Rally in 2010 I commented on the cute sandals that Jan was wearing. She let me try them on (we wear the same size) and I fell in love with them. They have an elastic strap on the back that doesn’t slide around so it doesn’t rub on those stupid screws. I immediately went on line and found the shoes and ordered a pair. Cost me $60 and they were worth every penny.
Since this is the only shoe I wear, they are really looking very sad. When Jan mentioned the outlet, I immediately told Jim that we were heading there after the luncheon. Jan was going to stop there on their way home because she ended up with two left shoes and needed to exchange them.
This is the result of our stop at the Easy Spirit Outlet on Baseline and Power in Mesa. And it’s all Jan’s fault.
And no, Jim was not left out either.
Aunt Happy had a follow up appointment this morning. They did some laser treatment because the pressure in her eye was too high. As soon as they relieved that pressure, her eye quit hurting (not totally but definitely bearable) and she felt good enough to bet on the ponies this afternoon (the wooden ones that they “run” at her complex. Her spirits are much better.
