July was an interesting and oh so bittersweet month. The first thing that we did was rent a satellite phone in case my sweet grandson was ready to arrive while Elliot and I were up in the mountains (no cell service). Then we cleaned the camping gear, shopped, packed, and drove up.
Sadly, by Day 2 of our trip, my sciatic nerve twinge became a full-blown attack on my hip and right leg. I have never felt pain or numbness like this. I ended up in the ER, and wound up on my back for four weeks! I’m feeling much better thank goodness. Wow.
Elliot had a blast since he got to hang with seven or eight of his lifelong friends who are part of the big group we go with each year, so I’m really happy about that! And our beautiful baby boy came the day after we got back! More on this soon!!!
Here are a few pics.
