After the long drive from Las Vegas to Bakersfield, our first stop was Best Buy to pick up our new gadgets. Walking toward the store, my leg was so painful I almost turned back to the car. That’s when we decided that Sunday needed to be a zero day. Upon arrival to our Residence Inn Hotel, we got unloaded, and Shannon set me up on the bed with my leg elevated way up in the air where it remained all day yesterday.
It wasn’t long before I had a fellow patient in bed with me. Sunday morning, Shannon ran over to the lobby to catch breakfast just as they were packing up. With her arms full she brought breakfast back to the room. In an attempt to balance a pile of plates, she poured hot coffee on her arm. The coffee was so hot it instantly burned the skin off her arm and over the course of the day formed the biggest blister I have ever seen. I wish I was as tough as her, not a complaint. That was all coming from my side of the bed. She is without a doubt one tough cookie!
