Alaska Day 60 Cook Out & Hospital ER

Larry & Peggy Leonard SKP #1426(?) invited some Loosey Goosey members to their place here in Ninilchik for a halibut cook out.  Larry is on the left and Peggy on the right with Mark next to her.  I’m in the background.  DSC_0004Larry is getting ready to deep fry the halibut in his special batter.  Mark and I deep fried some taters.

Carol & I left early about 3 PM.  My left ear had been bleeding internally and no hearing so it was time to go to the local clinic.  We went there and they took a lookey look.  The medical staff then called an ER doctor up in Soldotna.  He said for us to go up and see him.  We drove the 55 miles up to the ER at the hospital in Soldotna and arrived at 5 PM.  We saw the doc but it took 3 hours for the whole ordeal.  He said that I have blood behind the ear drum and what appears to be a tear in it.  That’s why I can’t hear out of it.  I now have an appointment for an ENT   specialist for Monday in Anchorage.  So we made a few changes in our plans and will be in Anchorage come Monday.  Tuesday the RV goes in to it’s doctor to fix the slide out.  Hopefully we both will be ready for the road Wednesday.  If not, we will deal with them accordingly.  The other folks will continue on with their trip as expected – loosey goosey.

See ya……….
