News from Vancouver, WA

This is post composed and uploaded from our Nexus7 — which I purchased from Victor before we left for Mexico. (Too hard to type on the virtual keyboard so will finish this on a normal keyboard.)

It was freezing last night (and for the next few nights), so here is photo of me having fun with the ice on the rear window of the Jeep.

I purchased a heating cord for the water hose a few days ago, so now we don’t have to worry about the water freezing at night.  One less thing to worry about.

Have been living a rather normal life during the day now that the catheter has been out for approx three weeks.  Still have problems at night so I have to wake up every 60 to 90 minutes to go to the toilet so I don’t have an ‘accident’ while sleeping.  The muscles are slowly returning to normal so I shouldn’t have this problem too much longer (I hope).

Guess I’ve been acclimating to the colder weather here in the NW because when I was discharged from the hospital, I could not stand the cold weather — I was cold most of the time and had NO resistance to the colder temperatures.  I also had very little body fat.

Now, I’m much more comfortable with the colder temperatures and can do a double-time up to the RV Rec Center for some fresh coffee in the mornings.  When I first arrived, I walked up the hill like an old man and had to use a cane — now I double-time it.
