Dr. Appointments, Joe's Coming To Visit and Other Stuff

DeBary, FL.
Highbanks Marina and Camp Resort

65 deg. clear, W. wind @ 6 mph.
Forecast = Areas of fog early, then partly cloudy this afternoon. High 88F. Winds NNW at 5 to 10 mph.

Everything went well at the Chemo doctor's visit Thursday. As expected, Linda will start Chemo treatments this coming Thursday, (The 1st of May), and will then have 2 more treatments at 21 day intervals.

This means that this next week is going to get really busy. On Wednesday, Linda has a follow-up appointment with the radiation Dr. (Dr. Graham), Thursday, she'll have the Chemo Treatment, plus Joe is flying in from Virginia Beach to visit. Then on Friday, Linda will have to go back to the Chemo doctor's office for that injection that helps her bone marrow make more blood cells. If you remember, that's the injection that makes her bones ache for 2 or 3 days. :-(

I don't know exactly how long Joe will be staying, but I think it will be between 5 to 7 days. He has some kind of airline discount thing that he must use by the 7th of May, so he'll have to be back in Virginia by then.

We've been having a good time camping here at Highbanks. Jim and Linda have been getting things organized in the trailer and yesterday, Jim went to Home Depot and purchased a towel bar, a TP holder, a toothbrush holder and some clothes hooks for the bathroom. I'm not sure why these items aren't already included with the trailer, but I suppose it's another way the manufacturer can cut the cost of production.

Speaking of the trailer, so far everything seems to be working well and no major defects have been found. Jim has tightened up a few screws and there is a piece of trim in the bedroom that he will be tacking down with a small nail, but nothing that would warrant taking the trailer back to the dealer.

Last night, Jim and Linda went to Gram's Kitchen for their "Fish Fry". Again, the food was good and so was the service. Gram's has become a very "comfortable" place for them to go out to eat.

It's been getting quite warm down here in Florida the last few days. We've been having highs near 90 degrees and the forecast is for temps over 90 Monday through Thursday. The humidity hasn't been too high yet, but I'm sure that will be rising soon. Neither Jim, Linda or I are looking forward to spending the summer here in Florida, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Did you know that the average high temperatures for June, July and August in DeBary, FL. is above 90 degrees?
