Here we are still "camped" in our daughters side yard.
Some of our time has been spent at the hospital with Mom. She is sleeping more each day. During her waking moments she is very aware of where she is and her long term memory is excellent. A few times I had been thinking about some people of my childhood. She is quick remembering their names and will even add some other detail. However, she is often depressed, anxious or fearful. I understand this is normal.
Yesterday Len, my nephew JR and my brother Norm built a handicap ramp at Mom's house with the expectation that she will return home. Today Len, my sister Debbie and I met with the hospital's social services director to discuss options. No decision will be made until after I talk with the doctor tomorrow.
Over the weekend we ordered new recliners for the fiver. We have been wanting to replace the current ones with Lazy Boy wall huggers. The ones we have now need to sit about 18 inches from the wall to totally recline. The wall huggers need only 4 inches of wall clearance. As each of you know, every inch floor space in an RV is precious. It is expected they will be ready in 6 weeks.
Today we ordered an air-ride King Pin for the fiver that will be installed this Saturday. Towing the rig, this new truck does not give an inch. Some of the Interstates and even other roads, can make for one jogging ride. After traveling from Lexington, Va and arriving here, all but about 5 items actually bounced off our bedroom closet rod and were laying in a heap on the closet floor. Now that must have taken some bouncing. It is our hope the new King Pin will make us more comfortable and prevent damage to items inside the rig.
On the way from the hospital today, we went a different route. What a delight when we saw this at Franklinvile, NJ a neighboring town from where I used to live.
Depending of what of doctor tells me tomorrow, we are hoping to spend next week at a Merry Meadows campground near my other daugher at Maryland. It is only two hours from here. We want to take the granddaughters on little day trips.
