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.
