Beating the high cost of fuel?
Over the last couple of days The Cowboy has developed a cold and is very congested. He slept quite a bit yesterday and we felt it was from the lack of sleep the night before. This morning he was up about 4:30 AM because he couldn’t breathe. He knew with the congestion that he wouldn’t be able to tolerate the mask that he wears for his radiation treatment. We were also concerned about him spreading his cold to the other patients so I called around 6:30 AM and left a message cancelling his appointment.
However, this is not like calling in sick at work. Sweet little Robin from the Radiation Dept. called around 10 o’clock and
politely suggested insisted that they had an opening at 10:30 and it would be best if The Cowboy be there for his daily treatment. He was feeling better by then and mentioned that about 10 minutes before she called me.
She explained later how important it is not to miss a session and that if he was sick that they would admit him to Emergency and treat him until he was able to take the radiation. All went well. His throat is tender but he is actually pleased about that. He feels that is a sign that the treatments are working and he would be more concerned if it wasn’t sore.
We made a Target stop and picked up a few things then we spent the rest of the day getting things back to normal around here with laundry, vacuuming, cleaning and tidying up. I know I’ve mentioned before that cleaning the motorhome is a snap and only takes about 12 minutes a day, key words there ‘a day’, which means daily. We’ve been focused on other things lately so it was a great day for catching up. The Cowboy really helped me by relaxing in the shade outside and reading. (Read: by staying out of my way!) He’s such a wise man.
Even found time to slip up to the pool to cool off from the 85F degree weather – that’s about 29C to you Canadians up north.
While we’re not big on air conditioners we actually had both of them running for a while.
Yeah, Life is tough out here on the road.
Wedge salad, lima beans and sweet potatoes (that were baking while I was at the pool) along with The Cowboy’s wonderful BBQ ribs . . . . .
And that was dinner tonight! Delicious!
