As I write this, we are driving east on I-40, returning to Indianapolis.
John's cardiologist ordered a thirty day heart monitor. The second day, we received a call and were asked when we were planning to return to Indiana.
Our answer was that were were returning for all of John's check-ups in September after spending our summer in the mountains of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado.
On the other end of the phone there was a slight hesitation and then "you need to get back here as soon as possible. John must have a pacemaker."
Instead of four to six weeks with our daughter Jojo, we spent two days before we left this afternoon for the long journey to Indy.
This has been a total shock to both of us. We, expecially me, are having a hard time wrapping our head around the thought of a pacemaker.
If it were a respiratory problem, we would not have been so taken off guard, but now, his heart? Good grief, what is next?
Well, whatever it is, we can handle it because of our faith in God / Jesus Christ.
So, here we are, traveling east through the Mohave desert. We have traveled to an elevation of over four thousand feet, crossed the Colorado River, and are back in Arizona with the scenery changing every mile or so.
Our plan is / was to drive three hundred miles a day for eight days. I am not sure that is going to work. Now that we are on the road, we are both wanting to get this ride over, get home and to the cardiologist.
Today, we did not even qualify for Paul Dahl's PDD bronze medal. We drove only two hundred eighty one miles.
We have not driven Interstate 40 since we came out four years ago. We are loving the change of scenery from Interstate 10. The semi traffic is much lighter on this route.
Hopefully, tomorrow I will have a progress report.
