Busy Appointment Day

Location: Catskill, NY (High 83, Low 49)

We started out bright and early this morning, heading for Albany to get our first appointments underway.

cairo1Mine was pretty straightforward, as it was my yearly physical exam. I was very happy to hear that my blood pressure was completely normal, as it was just a little over six months ago that I was able to discontinue my blood pressure medication.

Harry also had an appointment at the same office, and the doctor confirmed what we had already suspected, which is that he has an inguinal hernia which will require a surgical repair. That is the main reason that we scheduled two consecutive months here, as we are hoping that will be enough time for him to have the procedure and get back into tip-top traveling shape. Harry now has a referral for an appointment with the surgeon, which has been scheduled for next Wednesday.

We also stopped at a couple stores and did a little shopping. I think it is the first time we have been in a mall since last fall!


I took this picture as we were crossing the Castleton-on-Hudson bridge heading back to Catskill. If you look toward the left side of the horizon, the State Agency buildings in Albany can just be seen over the treeline.




What a picture perfect day!



After we got back to Catskill, we headed over to my sister’s place for a few hours. We had a good time chatting, and I helped my nephew study for his geometry test tomorrow.

Now that our first appointments are over, tomorrow it is the truck’s turn….back to Albany we go for an oil change…

  1. It must be good to be back in familiar territory. Hopefully Harry's surgery won't be too bad and you guys will be back on the road in no time!
