Location: Catskill, NY (High 78, Low 59)
It’s been another nice few days here in Catskill. We’ve had some thunderstorms (and are under a severe thunderstorm watch currently) but are thankful that our weather hasn’t been anywhere near as nasty as it has been in other parts of the country. I feel so sorry for the people who have been devastated by the tornado in Moore, OK.
Around here so far it has just been normal upstate NY summer weather; I think we skipped spring altogether.
Harry and I have been enjoying the relaxing pace of life since we arrived.
Yesterday my sister and I enjoyed a nice lunch at a local eatery.
Harry got the car all spiffed up, and we listed it for sale. We are hoping that we can sell it relatively quickly and have that last piece accomplished. Although there has been a time or two when it has been an inconvenience to only have the truck, it has not been enough to make us regret our decision to downsize to one vehicle. We love being able to travel together.
Today Harry and I made another trip into Albany for the surgical consultation appointment. This surgeon is the doctor who removed the staples after my appendectomy two and a half years ago. He was just as personable as I remembered, and was really good about explaining the causes of the hernia and what the options are for treatment.
After confirming that Harry did indeed want to go ahead and have the surgery (which isn’t really a choice – it’s a matter of “do you want it now or in a month or two?”), the doctor consulted his schedule and set Harry up for the surgery next Thursday. We are both looking forward to Harry being back in good condition and able to get out and enjoy being more active again.
