I had my stitches removed and left the hospital today…yippee!…with a swollen leg (my leg is still wrapped), a limp, a huge cold sore right in the middle of my bottom lip and a big smile on my face.
We needed some groceries so we stopped at the nearest Walmart (couldn’t find a grocery store)…we miss Festival. Walmart is Walmart…no matter where you are they are ALL the same.
We arrived at Twin Fountains RV Resort, in Oklahoma City, around noon…the RV Resort is about 15 minutes from the hospital. It was really nice to hop up those steps into the trailer. We ate lunch and I took a well deserved shower (which felt really good) and then I took a 2-1/2 hour nap while Howie did the laundry…what a guy! (I’m hoping to use “I just had surgery” for quite a while.) The RV Resort is very nice…the motor homes, trailers, and 5th wheels are very nice. The following are some of the motor homes we saw today. Some are towing matching trailers…probably have nice cars inside them. The vehicles that they are towing are really nice. Can’t have a beautiful motor home without towing a nice vehicle behind.
These are pictures that Howie has taken from the past few days.
We are going to rest another day before we leave. We will leave Friday morning, after I have a blood draw, and will be in Amarillo, Texas Friday afternoon. Oklahoma City to Amarillo is 258 miles…about four hours. We are taking it slow and making lots of stops. I am attaching a “revised” itinerary.
On Thursday we would like to go to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. We have been to the Memorial but not the Museum. We need to wait and see how I am tomorrow. I don’t want to over-do but we do want to see the Museum.
The Memorial Museum takes visitors on a chronological, self-guided tour through the story of April 19, 1995, and the days, weeks, months and years that followed the bombing of Oklahoma City’s Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The Museum tells a story of one of the largest terrorist attacks on American soil. The story is told in chapters, and takes visitors through this historical event beginning early morning April 19, 1995, and ending with a message of hope for today.
We have a debate to watch tonight.
