Man o man, Sir,
I know about the feeling of not going, It happened to me 3 years in a row. But come hell or high water I'm going this season.
I've had 3 heart attacks mild, but still ended up with 4 stents that's been 5-6 years ago.
I hope you have a speedy recovery and still take that trip just a month later. The warm weather will do you wonders. How's wifeys driving? is that a possibility.
Prayers going out to ya.
Take care and might see you down there...

With todayís non-invasive surgery techniques maybe youíll still get to go. For instance, about 7 years ago I had a prostatectomy. The surgeon removed my prostate through my navel and two months later Iíd recovered to the point where I was able to build a 12íx30í deck off the rear of my daughterís house. It ainít over till itís over!

Thanks folks for all the well wishes. I have an appointment with a surgeon early Jan. so unless it rears up again I will be tied up till then. My Doc. says there is a stone that is 1 inch in size so likely the culprit. My insurance says I have to be stable for six months but I think once the surgery is done it may change.
We went through the same thing in 2011 with Marcie and she presented the same way.
That killed our 2011 trip south.
It is a simple surgery so I am not too worried about it.
Although disappointed I am glad it happened close to home an not in AZ. Our dollar is low anyway and we were on the fence about going because of that and had just made the decision to go in-spite of that.
Maybe later or next year for sure.

Janet had cancer surgery and later a hip replacement. After each surgery we returned to the States. We told our insurance and they indicated we were covered for everything except complications that would come from the specific surgery. Since the surgeons in both cases gave her clearance we returned to our winter home with confidence.

Ohms for your gallbladder problems. Hope you get that fixed soon. We've missed you over on the mutant thread. Come over and visit some time. A bunch of us RVMs are in Arizona this winter and have a GC planned for Tucson Feb 1-8. Come join us if you can.

Dennis, I know you don't feel so lucky right now, but it's GREAT news to find out it's not your heart! As others have said, gall bladder problems are a far better thing to have!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Maybe it is for the best. You don't want to be traveling and not be at your best. Take care, speedy recovery.
