Today we went to Meadville to visit with my sister, Ava and had a very nice visit, We then visited with Larry and Diane Carullo in McKean. After stopping back at the motel for a late lunch and a rest we visited Art and Annie Freitas for a few hours.
Arrived in Erie last night around 4 and settled into the Red Roof Inn on I-90 and Rte. 97 by the casino. Today we did some shopping, got black raspberry cones at Whippy Dip and took a little hike in the Erie Cemetery.
Been busy most of the second half of May getting ready for our trip back North. Alesa had a follow up appointment with her knee doctor on Friday and things are going well with a bit of swelling so he drained most of the fluid from her knee.
Alesa had her follow up Dr.'s appointment on Monday and is doing fine, better every day but still limping. She has spent the week getting ready for a platform tennis tournament which was played today. It was her concept and she is running it but not playing in it.
This morning was a Hurricane Expo at the Rohan Rec Center. We call these 'free pencil days' as they have a lot of handouts. Alesa and I went down and learned a few things about available services.
I have been a member of the villages home brewers' club for about five years now, even before we moved here. After a couple of years I stopped going because I just never found time to brew some beer even though I had a couple of kits.
Alesa ventured away from the house for the first time since her scoping last week. We went to Wawa for coffee then to Walmart for some shopping. The neighbors loaned her a four footed cane which is easier than the crutches when she goes out.
Alesa continues to heal well, she is up and walking around with one crutch just in case she needs it. I golfed this morning with Dan, Mike and Steve then rode my motorcycle over to the Leesburg Bikefest this afternoon. It is quite a large event and I parked and walked around for a while.
Alesa tried beach tennis last week as an activity which would be less damaging to her knees and replace some of her platform tennis time. Since she knows the reporter who came to report on the sport, he interviewed her.
Alesa had her meniscus scoped on Wednesday and is recovering nicely. She was scheduled for 2 PM and was prepped but the anesthesiologist was an 1:45 late so we had to sit around and wait. Otherwise the staff was wonderful.
