Life sometimes sends us bumps in the road. This past year we have experienced several. Mike knew something was just not right about a year ago and so we visited the doctor. You must know that Mike is a typical man….he just doesn’t like going to the doctor at all. This is when they discovered he was predisposed for diabetes. We tackled this issue and I am proud to say, at this time, his blood sugar is normal and he is no longer on any medication. He began to have potassium issues last December and this continues on….. having his last encounter with high potassium in the last two weeks. It was at this time he began to have some heart palpitations that needed to be explored. So far all we know is he has mitral valve regurgitation which, if mild, the doctors just “watch” but it can become more severe and even need surgery. We believe Mike’s condition is mild at this time….praise the Lord!
It was also during this time that his PSA count was all over the board. We visited a different Urologist today to get a second opinion and the results….Mike will have a biopsy on his prostate on Thursday. Please keep this in your prayers! We are both optimistic that everything will come out fine. We’ll keep you updated. He is ready to not see any more doctors for a long time!
It is hard to believe June is about over and we are headed toward July! The weather certainly has been hot and dry here. We continue to watch and pray for those in the mist of wildfires throughout the country. We have enjoyed traveling along with many of you this summer via your blogs. We sure do miss being out there traveling, exploring and making memories but we know this is only a short detour….a bump in the road.
We have managed to take a few short trips in between appointments and have enjoyed just getting away. I suppose “hitch itch” never goes away even though you are temporarily without a hitch!! We still remain excited about purchasing a smaller rig and getting back out on the road again!!
