Daily challenges make life exciting in Sandy UT
I like to think I lead a well-ordered, if hectic, life. I get the most out of each day.
Now I realize the importance of Plan B, and sometimes Plan C. D E and F are somewhere there as well.
Friday saw my wife drive herself to Alta View hospital in Sandy UT for tests. A phone call advised me she had been admitted for observation, just as a lift piece on my van broke. All the parts shops were now closed until Monday (yesterday)
Hasty rearrangements of weekend activities, or at least some of them.
Since Alta View Hospital was but two miles distant, I could use my three wheel scooter if I watched its batteries carefully and charged them at both ends.
I had to be home for a fridge delivery (time only approximate). Twice a day to the hospital, on the top of a very steep rise, on a major road with unfinished footpaths. Lots of excitement especially making return trips in the dark - "I'm sure the edges are there somewhere!".
Monday came as a relief as I obtained the necessary part and effected repairs.
But on my second visit, I found Christie had been moved to Intermountain Hospital in Murray UT (with no notification to me or any other information). Change directions and hunt her down. I established that she had a room on the eight floor of the hospital tower. However she had just been taken to theatre and would not be available for several (or more) hours. The day sped by with me doing a lot of waiting, with phone calls to family and friends.
Happy to say I got to visit for a long time and to see her restfully settled.
Clincher for the day ~ My van was the only vehicle in the carpark; and the only one which refused to start ~ fuel pump challenges. The last train back to Historic Sandy had long gone.
Could become a movie script.
Today is another day. Full of more challenges, I'm sure ~ beginning with car repairs and including Trax trips with my trusty scooter.
Life can be quite exciting, certainly never dull in Sandy UT
