A big THANK YOU to Bob of "The Caretaker Chronicals" for posting their information in a post on my blog!!! You truly are a Caretaker Bob!!
They forwarded to us via email a requisition for pre op blood work and an EKG yesterday. We presented ourselves at our local hospital early this morning and had it all done, the results will be faxed to Shouldice..Upon receipt of the results the patient planner has promised to call us and if all is ok with the pre op testing-then I will book our flights to Ontario for October 24.
He will be admitted on the 24th with surgery on the 25th-and released on the 28th and we will fly back home on the 29th. I'm estimating we will not be crossing the border until late December..thinking we were stuck here this winter, I agreed to have company from out of town over the Christmas Holidays. So hopefully the weather holds up and we are able to leave Canada the end of December. Yahoooooo
Because of our local surgical wait time of 1-1.5 years we will "Have Surgery While We Wait"

Today was a sunny but chilly fall day~As you can see the trees are changing in some of these shots of our backyard
So it has been an eventful week since seeing the surgeon last Wednesday. How fast things can change. Now we are on the move prepping the motorhome for winterizing, emptying it then reloading it, making lists then making lists for the lists. I will reload it so that when the time comes all we need to do is turn on the fridge and fill it. We will ensure that the gas tank is full, and propane topped up before we winterize and park it in our spare driveway (so we can make a quick getaway when the time comes). Rick took the car to the dealer last night and had it all serviced, and the winter tires put on. One thing off the list :)
Here's hoping all is well with Ricks pre op testing (I'm praying)..and we get to Toronto for the surgery and all goes well. Oh wow so much to do..and so little time.
I see from reading your blogs quite a few of you are in travel and some getting ready to travel (like us!!!)...stay safe out there blogland friends...and I hope we meet up down the road in the not too distant future...I will keep you updated as we know more...thanks to you all!
