We had a great time, no motorhome issues, except. Tom had changed out the light bulbs but he decided the first evening the aim wasn't right. He is still amazed these things get out of the factory like they do. So after dinner at Cracker Barrel he was under the motorhome adjusting the 2 screws on each one, wow, what a difference even I can see. He wants to re aim them when home but it did the trick for us.
But don't let it fool you that all went well. Read the rest how the saga unfolded. I had written this on another board so just lifted and posted here.
We are home, wasn't going to drive straight through but stuff happens, a story is coming up.
Thanksgiving was really good, but the drive up was hell, high winds, rain, awful. Had to pull over several times and wait out storms. But we were all happy we had the motorhome, made it pleasant for us.
It got really cold in Indiana last night, rain, ice on the car and motorhome before we left but sunny and clear today. It was really good driving. We were going to stay overnight somewhere and drive in today.
Sue Anne was pouting because we had stopped at a Flying J to fuel upabout 4 yesterday afternoon and said she didn't get anything, sigh. So I told her while we were still busy go get something. 2 packs of gum satisified her, its just the something, like a kid. I was in the motorhome straightening and heard somebody screaming blood murder, couldn't figure out what was going on so went to the door. So don't you know there is Sue Anne on the ground in the driveway, she had tripped or stepped or something there and fallen. She said mom my leg went this way and it went that way, have no idea what she was talking about. Some nice guy was trying to help her and I tried but of course with her right shoulder we couldn't do anything. I told him my husband was inside if he could get him and about then Tom came out. He mainly managed to get her in the motorhome. Thankfully I had ice packs and hydrocone for her shoulder. I gave her a couple and tried to figure out what happened, we think it may be some torn tendons or something don't know yet. But I medicated her iced it down immediately after getting her in bed. And the combination really helped. We would have to stop and help her to the bathroom, but I kept the swelling under control. Other then an xray and stuck somewhere out there don't know what more they would have done at that point.This happened around Memphis.
So Tom and I decide the best thing to do is drive on in. It was obviously not broken or not broken through, she could put it down, wiggle her foot, but lots of pain and could not stand on it. Tom said what would we have done in a truck or car? We could not have gotten her to bathrooms or anything, I guess a hospital.
So anyway, we got her home. Our tenant had his mom's wheelchairs, he and Tom got her in it and got her down the motorhome steps. I had given her a pill so she wouldn't hurt so bad.
Has the remodeling paid off, we wheeled her in her room and could to her bathroom, it has a wide pocket door. Her bed is a tempurpedic adjustable so easy for her. We got her in bed and setup. We want to see how she is today before deciding whether to take her to the ER today or the doc Monday. I hesitate to on a holiday weekend, more experienced docs on holiday. But she definitely needs looked at so will see how it goes today. I was so tired we all slept for a few hours then I got ready to take her to the ER.
We have already discussed the new master remodel we want to do. We are wondering how she will get a bath. So we have already decided that we will widen the door to our bath when we do it and our bedroom, then put a roll in shower for a wheelchair, to prolong our ability to live here.
It will work out but I'm exhausted. I had to sit down and unwind for a bit before I get a shower and go to bed. Likely later today going to the ER for xrays to see what the situation is and go from there.
And of course Tom leaves again Wednesday.
