Mary – 09-13-11 WY/UT Trip – Salt Lake City, UT

Yesterday we relaxed and caught up on bills and picture editing and a wee bit of housekeeping. We took Sadie to an Opthamologist today for a follow-up from her CSU appointment. The doctor said the ulcer on her eye has worsened and she needs surgery. She is going to have a corneal graft performed Wednesday. Fortunately, she won’t have to stay overnight. We are extending our stay in Salt Lake so her one week follow-up appointment will be with the same doctor performing the surgery.

We spent the afternoon driving around neighborhoods in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. Most of the homes have awesome views of the mountains and the city. We will probably check out more tomorrow. The weather is absolutely beautiful; although, Conni complained once today of being hot – it was 79°. How quickly we’ve become spoiled with the cooler temperatures! We saw it was 106° in DFW and really feel for all our friends and neighbors.

The Utah State Fair is this week and the state fairgrounds are located right next to our RV park, so we will likely hit the fair while we are here. You should have seen us when, unbeknownst to us, they held a fireworks display on Sunday night. We both thought we were under an air attack with bombs dropping all around us. Sadie wasn’t too happy either. We drugged her the next night and then discovered the fireworks were just that one night.

I’ll close with many thanks to our friends who are keeping an eye on the inside and outside of our home, picking up our mail, and watering plants. We are blessed to have such wonderful neighbors.
