Scooter wants me to thank all of you for thinking about her and us and to let you know she is doing really good. In fact, she is getting a little tired of all the love she is getting from Mom and Dad. She feels really good – been bouncing around the house, goes “hunting” with Jim, and has even played with Skittlez occasionally.
This is back in 2004 when Skittlez was still a puppy.
On Wednesday we met up with Bob and Jo for lunch at The American Grill in Fountain Hills. We really enjoy our visits with them and want to wish Jo all the best with her surgery next Friday. We’ll be praying for you.
Thursday was an “exciting” day for us. Our belly pan cover is falling down under the fiver. So Jim crawled under the rig to try and fix it. After being under there for awhile, he went to get up and became extremely dizzy and light headed. Got him inside and in his chair. Thought maybe it would go away but no such luck. We checked his blood pressure and blood sugar and both were good. A couple of hours later he was still really dizzy. So off to Urgent Care.
This is definitely not the time of year to need Urgent Care. The place was packed and they told us we had a two hour wait (which ended up being almost three hours). So we sat down and waited and waited. All around us people were coughing and coughing. Oh joy. If we can get out of here without getting really sick we’re going to be very very lucky.
Jim finally saw the doctor. Decided they needed to do an EKG to make sure nothing was going on with his heart (it was beating which is good). After all the checking the doc said he has a bad case of Vertigo. Put him on some dizzy medicine and we got out of there. He’s doing better but still gets dizzy when he tries to stand up or moves his head too rapidly. At least his stomach isn’t in rebellion today. Some progress. If he’s not better in a week or so, we will make an appointment to see an ENT.
The park had a hot dog pot luck down in our water retention pit. So much good food. We had over 60 people show up.
Jim and the guys got to talking about what Jim had been trying to do and today (Sunday) Pat (our new neighbor across the street) crawled underneath our fiver and finished up the belly pan cover and also found the source of a leak that we had and fixed it while he was under there. Jim really hates having to need help but it’s so nice to know everyone is there to pitch in.
Oh Jim. Get well and stay that way.ReplyDelete
Jim needs to mend. Sounds like he has a bad case of "not fishing". You just need to be sure he wears a life jacket and someone goes with him!ReplyDelete
My Mom got a case of vertigo after a fall, I believe. I know she got over it and I think it took several months. I don't remember a whole lot about it now, but it is so good to know Jim's symptoms weren't caused by something much worse. I hope he gets over it quickly.ReplyDelete
Jim, are you looking for attention.....again???? You have it, dear friend.ReplyDelete
I can get vertigo from having too much gas in my digestive system. Taking simethecone helps. a.k.a. Mylanta Gas or Gas-XReplyDelete
I hadn't heard of a lot of vertigo but all of a sudden it seems like a lot of people we know has it. Glad to hear it wasn't anything worse.ReplyDelete
Golly! Sure hope Jim is alright! Hope it was just vertigo and goes away.ReplyDelete
Google Epley Maneuver especially on YouTube. It has to do with crystals in the inner ear. It fixed mine. Helped Mom, but she still takes anti-dizzy pills. Turning her head to one side seems to help during an attack. When you do the Epley Maneuver it will make the vertigo worse while you are doing it. It may not do anything on one side, then on the other the entire room will roll. That will be the side that has the issue. Hope that helps. Been there.ReplyDelete
Vertigo is nothing to take lightly. Hope the medicine does the trick.ReplyDelete
You guys certainly don't need that kind of 'excitement'!ReplyDelete
How nice of your neighbor to help out. I hope he's feeling better! Cute baby doggy pic!ReplyDelete
A month ago I had this it was awful, yes my stomach rolled too. Sure glad it didn't last more than a week or 2 nasty stuff. feel better soon JimReplyDelete
The Epley maneuver has worked for a couple of our friends--no more vertigo.ReplyDelete
Most Rvers seem really willing to help out. Glad Jim is doing better.ReplyDelete
Jim isn't taking Amiodaron by any chance is he? Max.ReplyDelete

Nice to have neighbors that can help you out with the RV repair. It's what we RVers do.ReplyDelete
Just a thought. I'm glad Jim saw a doctor, but I have discovered Doctor on Demand. Last year I woke up with an awful UTI. I called them ( you have to download the ap) and medication was waiting when I got to the drugstore when it opened at 8 am. I also had a terrible sore throat. Called them, and again--no waiting. They called in the prescription. It does cost 40$. Best money I ever spent.ReplyDelete
Three times now! Won't let me type. Anyway, when I'm sick the last thing I want to do is sit in a waiting room full of people who are coughing.ReplyDelete
So glad Scooter is feeling good. They really do steal your heart. Sorry for the extra posts. Oh, you need to use FaceTime on your phone as the DOD wants to see you. I don't know what they do if you don't have FaceTime. I'm pretty sure they would help you, anyway. Tell Jim the fish miss him. :)
I had a similar experience to Jim's this morning. Dizzy and vertigo as soon as I got out of bed. I took salt pills as I usually have low blood pressure and ate. It didn't go away but got better and I felt pretty good this evening at dinner. This getting old sure isn't for sissies! We enjoyed seeing you guys tonight.ReplyDelete
Great news re Scooter and as to Jim, he just has to slow down a tad. Glad you have great neighbors and friends to help.ReplyDelete
