On our way to Laughlin, NV as I type... in the RV for a long weekend. I don't like crowds or noise, but for some reason, I love Laughlin and Vegas. I've always loved to gamble and can do it without getting myself into any finanacial trouble. Plus, being in the RV on the river is better than a hotel. Our own food, bed and even dogs. That's the first great thing - on our way for a long weekend! My parents will be there and about 12 other RV's. My folks have a yearly get together with their friends, and we join them when we can.
Second great thing is that my partner's scan results came back negative for stage 4 melanoma!! The doctors thought it had metastisized to the liver or abdomen area as a pet scan showed positve, but with further scans, it is not cancer. What a relief!! Big difference between stage 3 and stage 4. Good recovery from surgery that occured a few weeks ago (modified neck dissection) with no complications. A lot to celebrate this weekend and makes for a lot more fun.
The third great thing is that Troy, the wandering desert Chihuahua has adapted just perfectly. He fits in so well and we are considering keeping him. Not a bad habit so far, perfect manners and an all around great little dog. He is even starting to play a little with my one year old Pug, CJ. He has an appt. at the veternarian's on Tuesday where we can have his eye checked out (looks like his haw has an infection or is inflamed at the least) and get a blood panel to rule out any serious problems.
So, getting away from the High Desert and gonna brave the crowds, get wet in the river, ride my motorcycle and try my hand at many a nickel slot. Right now we're on old route 66 almost to Amboy, CA. With health being the biggest issue, we have a lot to celebrate and be grateful for this weekend. Hope everyone has a good weekend as well!
