Remember Diane, we set the bar really low, don't go over there all sparkiely and make us look bad! Currently if you can breath on your own and dress yourself you qualify. Our replacements were nearly 90, no kidding, they had a SIL and daughter camping there just to keep an eye on them! Lol

Hope you enjoy your time there, we really like meeting everyone!

Flip on TV to catch Mickey Mouse Club and observe latest "development" of Annette.
My Mom used to make up a batch of Bee Hive corn syrup and peanut butter ready to use. I forgot what that tastes like but I know it was good as a kid!

And tes even the girls watched Annette.... To compare

I'm feeling a little down today. Ray and Sissy never asked to hear my theme song.

Oh well. Their loss, right?

Well...this a bit of blow by blow of things to date that I posted on my FB for friends and family. BTW...I welcome any of you to look at my FB and "friend" me if you wish at https://www.facebook.com/donald.moore.102

First, seems like the whole familty is in medical needs. Mom-in-Law, Sister-in-law's Mom & son and to top it all off, Sister-in-law found out she needs surgery for torn rotator cuff. SIGH!

Things started Sunday after we arrived at our RV park. I was feeling pretty good on the drive here but shortly after we got parked and I did our set ups I started feeling whimpy. I've really lost track of time with all the sleeping I have done but by Monday night my temp went up to 105*. I also had severe, bone chattering chills too. Tuesday Morning at about 3 am I got out of bed to go to the bathroom and suddenly passed out. I don't even remember hitting the floor but I came to with Sandee calling 911 for an ambulance. I talked her out of it (dumb men) and got back in bed.

We then took my temp later that morning and decided to go the hospital in Glascow, KY. They gave me a bag of fluids, took lots of blood samples including some for culturing to find if I have anything really nasty. The early tests indicated a mildly eleveate white blood cell count so that is reasonably good.

I suppose things are better but I may need to go back to the hospital today unless I can get enough fluids in me to avoid dehydration. I'm working on that now.

The good news is that we are located in a Cave County RV Park that we had hoped we would use to visit Mammoth Cave before I got sick. We orignally planned a day for that visit but that got shelved. The RV park management has been FANTASTIC! This is a busy campground that doesn't have a problem keeping most of the spot in use and they had to move some incomeing guests to different spots so that we didn't have to move around. They are keeping our spot off the reservation available list on a day by day basis until I am ready to leave.

The fever has subsided a quite bit but is still a bit of a roller coaster. It was 101* when I went to bed and I was comfortable enough to ditch all but the sheet and light weight blanket.

HOWEVER...at 3 am I started sweating so bad I felt like I was stepping out of a shower. Sandee got a couple blankets for me to lay between to get me off the wet sheets. The good news is that my temp was 99* and is now 98.6* so perhaps, with a little luck, I am off that roller coaster.

Sandee has taken EXCELLENT care of me. Lots of getting up through the mornings to fix the bed, replace sheets take my temp and make sure I take my meds.

Hopefully I'm on the mend...time for another bottle of water.

When all is said and done you better treat Sandee to a special just for her day, once you are up and around. She sounds like a real keeper.

Thanks for the update and hopefully all goes well from here in; I got a bit unnerved when I heard of you fainting spell while fevered, not a good sign at all.

Healing ohmmmssss from our house to yours.

Wishing that everything starts lining up along the rainbow for you and your family.

My dumb moment came at the end of the 'replace the air bag springs' episode. I decided that we should have the schrader valves up under the cowling of the motor home for easy pressure checking. Long story short I decided to drill the mounting hole in a piece of flat metal right behind the bonnet cover. I placed an awl there and whacked it with a hammer to set a pilot indent for the drill. I whacked it a tad hard and knocked the actual mounting plate for the cowling mechanism off the drivers side of the unit.

So I spent the whole day figuring out a way to remount the hinge plate to the machine and then going about remounting the hinge plate and then the mechanism and then the hood.

I do have to say that a cute little tool Denise got me for Christmas sure came in handy. Little hand held 90 3.6 volt drill. Never thought I would use the thingy but it was the only way I could drill holes (while looking into a mirror) to locate the proper place to make 1/4" holes for the stove bolts to hold the hinge pieces.

Once I got the side that was still attached drilled I used these holes to make a template to flip 180 for drilling the opposite side holes in the correct location. After successfully rewriting the "Longshoreman's Profanity Gazette" a couple of times, (as mentioned earlier) I got everything set up and ready.

Went to the local DIY place and found they were out of Stainless Steel Stove bolts and had to settle for hex head until the stove bolts arrive in a week or so. Had to settle for second best as we are headed out camping this morning.

DW is volunteering at the Blood Bank today and we will head out as soon as she gets home.

I will post pictures when it is finally completed properly.

My reward today for not causing a ruckus in the grocery store. These are super tasty rooster treats. Little Red Hen claims they are not loaded with junk chemicals. Surprising, because I thought good tasting stuff always was full of bad stuff.

Mm-mmm! Little Red Hen has something there. I too will keep a sharp chick's eye out for them. (Not mine, of course; I'll have to convince some sharp chick to help.)

Cheers!
