Tuesday, October 24, 2017 –
Hello there… I mentioned last week I couldn’t upload pictures here at Travis AFB, and I’d wait until we got back home this past weekend to publish last week’s blogs.
After spending a welcomed weekend at home, we got back to Travis AFB yesterday. We brought a different computer, and the same problem continues. I’ve surmised there must be a restriction with the WiFi here on the base. I’ve seen this security measure taken within the U.S.G.S., in not being able to upload data or pictures to their PC’s.
None the less, I’ve continued to write this story, but I’ve also decided to wait to publish until I can include the pictures taken with it. I didn’t get the time to publish over the weekend. We had left the connections to the camera at Travis.
Not being able to publish last week was disappointing to me. I was excited to tell you about each day, but without the pictures – uh, you know. Besides, the more pictures, the less I need to write? Nah, it’s hard to shut me up.
I wanted to share with (and still will) last week we had Captain Sully’s visit here at the Fisher House, we also had friend David in from Utah, we made a decision about brain radiation, and other little events I’d like to share with you, but I must wait until this weekend to do so (saying again).
So, one day this blog will appear out of order, but I wanted to let you know what’s going on. I am going to publish what I’ve written recently just in case any of you want to read about those days gone by. When we get settled back home I’ll get all of them out.
We did opt for the brain treatments, and we’ll be here another 3 1/2 weeks. We’ll finish up the lung treatments this Friday, and start the brain treatment this coming Tuesday. We’ll be home for three days each weekend. Patty remains here with me in the meantime, and we’re enjoying ourselves. We keep amused running around this huge Military base checking out this and that.
Things like we got an I.D. today that allows us buying privileges on the base. We made an appointment for an auto oil change, and went to the commissary (big grocery store). It’s all less expensive making it fun to shop here.
In closing, I must tell you the care we get here is excellent, and the Air Force personnel on this base are all so helpful, kind and respectful. The accommodations we have at the Fisher House are beyond any expectations, and we find ourselves not regretting being here. We are grateful for what our country has provided us during a tough time. Thank you America, (that would be all of you).
I’ll do some catching up with you this coming weekend. In the meantime, thanks for hang’n with me…. Ronald Lee
