Ted was released from St Anthony Hospital in the Denver area August 25th. The doctors wanted him to stay in the area for a month to 6 wks to gain his strength and make sure he was stable before heading home to FL. There is not a lot of campgrounds in the Denver area, but the AF base said come on over and we will make sure you have a spot. Thanks to our brother-in-law Gerry and my sister, Jean, for getting our rig down from Elk Creek CG in Grand Lake to the AF base just outside of Denver. This was our spot for Ted recovery for almost 6 weeks.
The first Monday we were at the famcamp the lawn mowers through up a stone and broke the side window of the motor home. Neighbors across the street secured the window with duck tape until the repair was completed.
The mowing company at the base had the window replaced for us. Glad their insurance covered the replacement, since was told that it would have been about $1500.
Job well done...
