Hello

Hi I am new here and just purchased a 2000 winnebago 35u adventurer. My wife and I are 48 yrs old and my wife suffered 2 major brain anuerysms in march 6th,2013. I bought this motorhome to take her out and let her see some things in the world. I don't know how much more time we have together. I drove 5hrs to go pick this rig up from Alvarrado tx. On the way home we ended up in the hospital in fairfield tx. 2 days there before she could travel again. I am now scared to travel with her. What is the best way to travel with medical issues? Please help if you can. this is my last effort of some happy life with her. I don't work as I take care of her full time. Money is very limited, selling everything we own to survive. Any good trips from Houston area known. Thanks and God Bless Brian

Hi Brian! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the group!

So sorry to hear about your wife's medical problems. I would suggest that you talk with her doctors to see if they think it's a good idea for her to travel at this time. I know you're in a really bad situation right now, but just know that God is still in control! We will be praying for you and your wife. God bless.

Aneurisms of any kind are serious. I assume that while in the hospital they did a cat scan or MRI to see if there are more potential problems.

First thing is to have a serious discussion about options for travel with your doctor or the specialist.

If you can get the doctor on board I am sure there are many options for travel. Plan your travel with shorter legs. Max at one or two hours. That is sufficient to get a change of scenery and not be overly strenuous. Stay at lower altitudes.

Good luck with your discussion with the doctors and future travel plans.

Glad you're aboard Brian. Congrats on the new to you rig. Sorry to hear of your DW's medical issues. Best wishes for a resolve. I'd urge working with the Docs to help you and her enjoy your adventures and be safe.

Welcome to the irv2 gang, Brian! Glad you and your DW (Dear Wife) are here! You've found a great bunch of folks to ask questions and gather information on travel options. I'm sure you have spoken multiple times with doctors and have some limitations. My hope is that others here in these forums who have traveled with medical issues will reply with information (something I can't offer you). God bless you both!

Welcome and glad to meet you!

I believe you might be able to take shorter trips, but I would be afraid of traveling too far from home. I'm sorry for this!

I would advertise in the classifieds here on IRV2 (free), and on RVTrader.com. RV Trader has a great website that is easy to navigate for someone looking to buy. I would select the deal where they run your ad until it sells. As for the asking price, I would search RVTrader.com for the same model and year to see what others are asking. You can also go to NADA RV listings and see what they say yours is worth.
Some people use Craigslist, but you will be flooded with scam offers. Don't fall for any of them!

Please keep in touch with us on your wife's progress. The "Just Conversation" area of the forum would be good for that. We will continue to pray for both of you!
