The last two weeks have been pretty hectic around here. Things have been happening and time just seemed to fly.
I guess it all started with Kathy’s surgery. I had mentioned that she was having by-pass surgery on her left leg to take care of a blocked vessel. Everything went well and the procedure was successful. She did, however spend a week in the hospital which meant I spent a week in the hospital as well.
The week after she came home she was scheduled to have the stitches removed at the doctor’s office. The 20 minute drive into Pottsville is rarely a problem except that on this day we were hit with a snowstorm. 20 minutes turned into 2 hours.
We called the doctor’s office to see if they would be there or if they were closing. They said they would stay open and wait for us. We were not the only ones scheduled for the day.
There were no plows out. The roads were not treated. We were stopped for about 45 minutes on a hill with no where to go. I left a good two or three car lengths between me and the car in front of me yet some people still decided to pass me and pull into that space. Why? no one was moving.
We got into Pottsville but couldn’t travel the main highway. We found out the road was closed because of traffic pile up…no accidents thank goodness. We were literally about 3 miles from the doctor’s office by this time.
We knew some back roads so we got off the highway, went into town and hit the back roads. After another 20 minutes we arrived at the office. In less than 5 minutes Kathy had her stitches out and we were on our way home…another 2 hour ride.
