Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Russ and I left California on the 30th of July to be in Sun Valley and Fairfield, Idaho for my nephew’s wedding at an old fashioned, country ranch resort.  Along the way Russ found it difficult to breathe and Kaiser, CA said, go directly to St. Luke’s at Sun Valley.  He spent a night with unusual symptoms.  Blood pressure went sky high when he would walk and heart rate dropped rather low.  A wonderful doctor has walked us through all the hoops and connected us with Idaho Falls cardiologist so we could get back from the wedding to my sister Karole’s and where my dad is.

I could go on and on, but with God’s grace we have continued to be supported by all the right people and his heart test where they can view his heart from flipping him around and over shows he will need a pacemaker.  He is now back over at the hospital getting further tests.  The Sun Valley doctor is staying on as primary and co-ordinating everything.

The coolest thing has been that we could go to the wedding.  We stayed in Sun Valley in the RV at my bothers.  Did not try to move RV to the wedding site 40 miles away.  But on day of wedding doctor let me drive Russ over and he got to enjoy the whole day.  The wedding was terrific and family and friends should recognize people I hope.  I enjoyed grand nieces and nephews and and all my family as well as Lisa’s lovely family.  Nothing like a mountain wedding and casual outdoor eating.  Russ and I were in charge of the salad for 120 plus people and lots of people helped us as they new Russ should not be doing too much cause of the high blood pressure.

    Please give Russ a big hug from me. I’m so sorry this is going on with him. Is he going to be able to handle the RV without having problems? The wedding looks beautiful. Please let me know how Russ is feeling.

    Love ya, N

    • Nancy thank you for the message and we are just waiting again today to hear back from the doctor who will coordinate everything about the heart pacemaker. Will call as it lays out for us.
