Mother's doctor was able to work her in as she has been in constant pain since July 3rd and he was on vacation. It bears mentioning that the two times I took her to the ER at Val Verde Regional Medical Center were a complete waste of time. They never address what was causing the pain or gave her anything to treat it. Though I am sure she will soon receive a nice bill from them.
When the telephone rang this afternoon and it was from his office...my heart sank as I thought they would not be able to work her in after all. However, it was to notify me that he was running behind on his appointments and if I could bring her in an hour later. What a break as I was having a heck of a time trying to dress her when each movement sent a sharp pain down her back.
Not ten minutes later the skies opened up and the area where mother lives finally got a good healthy shower even though per Weatherbug it only amounted to .18" ...but that is better than nothing! Boy, was I ever glad her appointment had been delayed.
After examining her, it was too late in the day to get all the tests and X-rays he ordered. He did give her something to address the pain until a cause can be pinpointed. The prescription was not going to be ready for an hour at our local HEB so decided to kill some time by driving to my favorite Amistad campground...Governors Landing.
There were only two occupied camp spaces but there were several families in the public section of Governors Landing. Families were swimming, fishing and cooking out late this afternoon.

Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
