Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

Update on Barb

They moved Barb out of ICU last night into another room. She's feeling much better, her blood sugars and blood pressure is back in the normal range. Hopefully she'll be discharged tomorrow and come home.

Emergency Room Visit

As we travel around the country on our adventures, one adventure that we can do without is visiting a hospital emergency room.

Well we're only 4 days into the new year and things are going bad for Barb. Barb was admitted into the ICU at the Biloxi Regional Medical Center this evening.

We went to the mall here in town earlier today and she started feeling dizzy. She hadn't had anything to eat yet so thinking her blood sugar was low, I took her into a cafeteria in the mall so she could get something to eat. That didn't seen to help so I took her back to our motorhome and checked her blood sugar. It was a little high but not that bad so then I checked her blood pressure. It was way to low.

The VA hospital is only a mile from us so I took her to the ER there. By then it was about 2:30 in the afternoon. There were people in the waiting room complaining that they had been there since 10:30 this morning and they hadn't been seen yet. Well the hell with that. It seems like I have a new favorite quotation when I'm around the VA. I said "fine, I'll take her to a real hospital."

I then took her to the civilian hospital here in Biloxi. They checked her blood pressure and it was back in the normal range but her blood sugar had risen to over 500. They checked it again about a half hour later and then it was over 700. The ER admitted her into the ICU to place her on a slow insulin drip. Barb was feeling fine when I left around 11:00 tonight and I'll check on her in the morning.

New Job

This year as we return back up to Wisconsin for the summer season, I have a new "job" to keep me busy. I've been elected as the new Rear Commodore for the Oconto Yacht Club. Now what in the hell is a Rear Commodore? In our club, the rear commodore chairs the House Committee which has the general supervision and control of the Clubhouse. In other words, the rear commodore oversees the maintenance and stocking of supplies for the clubhouse, to include making sure that the bar is kept stocked. As the Rear Commodore, I become a flag officer and I get to fly the Rear Commodore Flag on our boat.
