Monday, we left the beautiful Brown County State Park in Nashville, Indiana and moseyed on up to the Camping World in Greenwood for an oil change, a new lock on one of our compartments and a new toilet.
Some of you might remember that we had "issues" with the toilet on our trip to the Southwest winter before last. It was supposedly repaired by Edmundson RV in Taylorsville, Indiana. Again, Edmundson let us down and we turned to Camping World for help.
Edmundson's service staff trash talked Camping World something fierce and had us convinced that their service technicians were terrible, the service was terrible, etc. As it has turned out, almost every repair we had made at Edmundson's has needed to be re-repaired costing us thousands of dollars.
What we found the Greenwood, IN Camping World was a service driven organization that believes that truth and honesty is the best policy! And we did not have to wait for days or weeks to have our work finished. Kudos to them!
It has been about a month since he had his sleep study and has been waiting eagerly for this appointment. Do you think he looks happy to be in their presence - finally?
I looked at Tammy's identification badge and could not believe that she was the person pictured. I do not remember how much she weighed prior to her bariatric surgery, but it was a lot. Congratulations, Tammy!
A resting heart rate should be lower than when up and about, John's heart "resting" heart rate was over the target heart rate if he were exercising! John was at risk of having a heart attack! Gee, can we add anything else to his list of problems?
John was given the choice of three methods of delivering the continuous positive air pressure. The one on the left fits right above the top lip and covers the entire nose. On the right you see one that covers the nose and mouth. That mast reminded me of a scene in the movie Top Gun. These two, were John's rejects.
At the time, John thought that this would be best for him. He has used this one every night and continues to have air leaks that wake me up so that I can wake up John and have him re-seat it. John is sleeping better, but not me. John now thinks he will trade it in for the one on the left that covers the nose only.
Surely there is a smaller chin strap out there! This looks as if he has either a neck lift or a tooth ache!
On the positive side, John feels so much better. He is less tired and his eyes have life in them rather than total fatigue.
Wednesday, was another doctor appointment! This time John had a growth removed from his leg. After leaving the doctor's office, we were off to Hayden Physical Therapy so John could say thank you and good bye.
Yesterday, we finished our business with Camping World and finally....I repeat, FINALLY on the road of fulltiming! First stop? Allegan Michigan. More on Allegan and the Michigan Fiber Festival in next post.
For now, thanks for stopping by. I love your comments ..... God bless!!
So wonderful to see John smiling! He looks great.ReplyDelete
Jim has the one on the left. Doesn't really like it but it's better than the others. Hopefully it will fit better and give you more sleep. Have fun in Allegan.ReplyDelete
Seems to be the old trial and error to get the issues resolved. Both the RV repairs and those for John!ReplyDelete
Whoo Hoo! You're on the road! It's been a long road for you and John, Nan, but it will be worth it now that you can enjoy your fulltime life and adventure. Enjoy every moment you and John have together in your travels. Wishing you many, many years of happiness in the lifestyle of your choice.ReplyDelete
Well, fortunately for you and all your readers my long-winded post got lost. Wishing you and John many years of happiness in the lifestyle you have chosen. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
another new fulltimer!..safe travels to you and yours!ReplyDelete
LOL! My goodness: you're right! That is some serious chin strap. Looks like you could tie down a person with that thing. I guess they don't want you to lose the mask while tossing and turning in your sleep.ReplyDelete
Really glad to hear that John is so much more rested! Also glad that you got good service at Camping World. The people at Edmundson RV should be ashamed of themselves.
