Anyway, the doctor appointments are going so-so and they will eventually get done. The VA is very slow and because of this we probably won't be able to leave until later then we had planned. Although we both hate waiting, it is what it is and Dan's health comes first. I'm thinking of the glass being half full, as always, and it gives me more time to work with Tucker.
Some of the other doctor appointments have been for my sister Christine. So far we've gone to the Tacoma Group Health twice so she could have a 1 centimeter kidney stone zapped. Shes in the process of trying to get rid of it now. I've been sleeping with my cell phone right by my head so if she has a problem she can call and I'll go across the driveway to my Mom's house. She can't have a fever above 101.3 as she becomes Sepsis, then its a trip to the ER. Sure don't want that to happen to her again. Ya just never realize how busy doctors are and how short handed they seem to be for help until ya get kidney stones zapped, CT scans, x-rays, women stuff done, mammograms, and seeing your primary care doctor first before any of this stuff can be done. What a messed up system is happening here and being under staffed too. Dan has the VA to rely on but now that I'm gonna be 65 next year I guess I look forward to Medicare along with my Group Health. Grrrrrr. Not sure how that works yet but I'll be finding out.
And, so life goes on. We did manage to take a day trip to Port Townsend to the Jefferson County Fair to see our friends Chris and Connie. They set up their concession at the fairgrounds every year. We took Bella with us for the day. Here is what the concession looks like. Its been in my blog many times before. Our truck is to the right. Bella was just sitting in her bed on the console of the front seat, door open, and looking around. She got out of the truck a couple of times and walked around on her leash. She was just content to look out the windows.
