No sooner did we get our trailer all set up, than I started feeling a lot of pain in my leg.
This is not unusual, this leg has been in constant pain for five years now, and when I overdo it, it hurts worse, so, I took some painkillers and went to bed.
I wasn't feeling real hot the next day, but I figured it would get better soon.
The day after that, I woke up with my leg roughly twice it's normal size, bright red, and so painful I couldn't walk.
OK, this was not good it just kept getting worse, so Diann took me to the hospital, where they admitted me. I spent most of my vacation there, and Diann spent her vacation running back and forth between the hospital, and the campground, where her family was reunioning. (is that a word?)
It was not a fun experience, but it was a reminder.
My friends, my family, and especially my wife, didn't bat an eye. They circled the wagons so to speak, and did whatever was necessary to take care of me.
It's no fun to be in the hospital, but it's great to know that there are so many people who will drop what they are doing and be there for me if I need it.
They are too many to count and name, but they know who they are.
To the ones who read this blog, thank you for being there.
And lest anyone ever forget, I have the most incredible wife in the world.
She spent the last week taking care of me, taking care of a two year old, and still functioning as a normal adult.
And, she drove our trailer back to the original campground where we keep it,
Get this people...
Are you listening???
She had never backed a trailer before, and yet she backed it in perfectly, in the spot, straight and lined up, on her very first try!!!!
Lets see Martha Stewart, or Susy Homemaker do that!
I Love you!
