Kerry makes the 2 hour drive home from Phoenix on Sunday afternoon. She was actually discharged from the hospital late Friday, but felt in no condition to drive the distance at that time so she stayed at a hotel near the hospital Friday night. That turned out to be a very wise decision because she developed an allergy to the antibiotic, and needed to see the doctor in the morning. Her antibiotic prescription was changed but the doctor advised her to stay near the hospital for the next 24 hours in case an allergy developed to the new medication.
What they were able to do for her while she was in the hospital was a temporary fix, however. The kidney stone removal can’t be done until the infection she has which is related to it, is completely gone. She will need to return to Phoenix at a yet unknown date within the next week or two for that procedure.
Annabelle is so happy to see her mom! But so are my dogs. If you have experienced one of Joy’s greetings, you will know exactly what I’m talking about! 🙂
Kerry stopped for some Thai food while in the big city, and she shared it with me for our dinner. What a treat that was! Over dinner we discussed ideas about how we can work out the dog-sitting for the upcoming procedure. Since we don’t yet know when it’s happening or if she will be and in or out patient, it’s difficult to plan, but at least we come up with ideas.
In the mean time we are both feeling the need for some of the finer things in life, like electricity, unlimited hot showers, and laundry facilities. I have previous reservations for a weeks stay at the RV Park in Q that I spent some time in before boondocking, starting on Tuesday. Kerry will probably end up in town as well, ASAP, so the story will continue….
Here are pictures of how the sun said good night on the last two evenings.
