A Little Glitch and The Illinois Bunch Arrive Today

Rantoul, IL.

56 deg. overcast, N. wind @ 8 mph.
Forecast = Mostly cloudy. Highs around 63°F. North wind to 10 MPH.

Had a little g.itch yesterday morning.

Because it was raining hard, off and on, Jim and Linda left here about 8:00 so that they'd be sure to get down to the south side of Champaign by 9:00 for Linda's follow-up appointment. Big RED said that they were heading South on I-57 in heavy rain and wind when the phone rang. Linda answered it and was told that her appointment was canceled because Dr. Anderson was sick and couldn't come in to see any patients.

So,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  at the next exit they turned off of I-57 and brought some county roads back here to the CG. :-(

The nurse that Linda talked to said that Linda's appointment would be rescheduled for today at 9:00, but even the nurse was wondering if Dr. Anderson would be well enough to come in.

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but we're on a pretty tight time schedule here. Linda is tentatively scheduled for surgery on her other eye this next Monday, it's still just tentative and now there's the possibility that the surgery will be delayed. If it is, it may cause a conflict with an appointment that Linda has with Dr. Gandhi to have another one of those injections.

Both of Linda's eyes seem to be doing well. She says that since the cataract surgery on her left eye, she can see better with it than she has for a long time. Most of the irritation has disappeared in both eyes and she thinks everything is healing up nicely. ;-)

Today, Most of the "Illinois Bunch" are coming here to the Prairie Pines Campground, (Because of Gordy's health I don't think he and Dorthy will be coming). and they'll be staying until Monday morning.  I imagine that they'll be getting here sometime around noon, so unless there's a delay at Dr. Anderson's office, Big RED should be able to get Jim and Linda back here by then.

We had a lot of rain yesterday. (I know it was well over an inch), and then late yesterday afternoon, we had pretty strong storm come through the area. After the storm, the temperature started dropping and now this morning, it's down to 56 degrees with a forecasted high of only 63 degrees today.

Did you know that on this date in 1967 - The Carol Burnett Show premiered on CBS?
