Update On Move And Surgery


I moved last Monday morning.  We were on our way by 8:00 as planed.  All the guys in Maintenance came to say goodbye.  Thank you, Jeremy, Ruben and Bruce for all your help.

We needed to stop to fill up the Propane tank, so we stopped at U-Haul then parked in their lot while we went to Panera at The Plant for breakfast.  We took CA 87 south to CA 85 west to CA 17 to Santa Cruz.  Ted was able to back in to space 24 in just two tries and leveled it with just a few pieces of wood.  We got it all set up and then headed back to Grant Park to get my car.  Ted headed home to San Francisco and I headed home to Santa Cruz.  I was going to stop to shop, but decided to just go home.

Tuesday I slept in, because it was really chilly and I didn’t want to get out of my warm cocoon.  It starts to warm up when the sun comes above the trees, then it is really nice.  I ended up running those errands in Santa Cruz, so that I could get to know my new surroundings.  I also wanted to get stocked up, since I would be incapacitated for a while after surgery. 

Wednesday I didn’t get out of bed until 11:00.  I wanted to  get the outside setup, but I have to wait until the previous tenant removes his shed and other stuff,  Until then I can’t open the back compartment.  He is supposed remove it by tomorrow.

I was supposed to be admitted into the hospital and be released on Saturday, but that all changed.  Dr. Stidham decided to take out the long screw, but leave the rod in, then go into the shoulder to remove all the scar tissue.  I was able to go home the same day.  Ted had to change his plans and came to take me home after work.  I am home and doing well.  With the change, I forgot my prescription for main medication, but am doing just fine with extra strength Tylenol.  My left arm is in a sling and I have an ice pack on it.  Needless to say I’m doing everything one handed, but that’s okay, I’ve had a lot of practice.

I’ll see if I can get some pictures to post soon.

Last Full Day At JD Grant County Park


The backyard of My Spot II will change tomorrow. 

This last week here in the park has been really slow and I haven’t done much of  anything out of the ordinary.  I basically kept the restrooms clean and stocked and picked up trash after the few campers that were here during the week.  The rest of the time I got ready for my upcoming surgery and got My Spot II ready to move. 

The original plan was to move today, however Ted had to work, so he will come after he is through and we will try to leave by 8:00 am on Monday.  This afternoon I will dump the tanks one last time and in the morning we will unhook the utilities, lower the coach and leave the park.  Ted will drive the MH and I will drive his truck.  We will have to come back for my car after we are set up in Santa Cruz.

This post is to give you a variety of pictures from my stay at this park.  I have enjoyed my stay and working with the staff here.

So, this is it for my stay here at the JD Grant County Park.  You’ll just have to wait for my next stay.  It may be a while for my next post, as I will be having surgery next week. 

So for both Angel and me
