Casa Grande

Dr. appointment went well with my Mom. She gained 2 pounds. She thought she had put on at least 7 or 8. What her doc explained to us, was that for someone with her level of breathing difficulty, she would need to take in 3000 calories a day just to maintain her weight. A couple more desserts?

Yesterday we arrived in Casa Grande, on our way home along Hwy 10, to visit our neighbors that are staying in an RV resort (Palm Creek) for 3 months. This place is huge. It can hold close to 2000 motorhomes, has 2 pools, 5 dog parks, a golf course, beautiful grounds, classes for woodworking, jewelry making, all kinds of things. It's like a big city in here. I'll take more pictures today, just to show you around a little.

my parents lived in Casa Grande for a while many years ago. spent a christmas there along with an emergency trip for my father who suffered from Emphysema. My mother used to give him ice cream between meals and those shakes - ensure? - at least a couple times a day. great to hear she is feeling better.

Good to hear about the improvement in your Mum's condition.

2000 motorhomes in one place! I can't even begin to contemplate what that must be like. That's probably got more dwellings than many of the communities in New Zealand.

So what did she want to talk about? So glad she's doing better. My heat is with you, my friend.
