Pain seems to be easing as she finds the need to take less of the Morphine liquid to back up the regular pain meds so that is a sign things are improving.
The 40 staples closing the incision closed are to be removed Tuesday next so another step up the ladder to recovery.
We have had friends, readers and fellow bloggers, you know who you are, help with things like diesel and gas etc and offers from many others. A big thank you to every one of you.
Now a bit of help for two blog readers who have E-mailed the request below. As Jaq or I have never ventured along the K and A we are at a loss to give any advice to Betsy and Ian so fellow boaters and hirers help is needed.
If you offer advice via comments I can publish them but if you have any lengthy suggestions use my e-mail and I will forward them on.
Any links to boat companys will make life easier for your fellow readers.
Hello, and hope all are recovering well! We are an American couple (husband born in England but moved to US at age 8), and we are trying to plan a canal boat holiday for this summer. We have family in Winchester, south of London, so we have been looking at the Kennet and Avon route, so that we might have a chance to visit them. We are looking for about 5 days on the water. One company has suggested a route between Bath and Bradford on Avon, stopping before the Canal Hill locks and return, but we had the idea that the east side of the big locks would be more scenic. Can you counsel us on this? We are really operating blind being that we are so far away and don’t’ have any knowledge of the waterways. Also, can you recommend a canal boat rental company on the Kennet and Avon route? We are so appreciative of any information and advice you can share with us. Thank you, Betsy and Ian E
