Our last night in Salida. Todd and I had another big day.  Early wakeup call but we accomplished more in one day then I probably do all week back in California!  We held the last day of the moving sale, deciding to get more people to see the items we moved the remainder of items to the front yard.  Todd […]

Update from Salida

Update from Salida

Todd and I are in Salida. This is our 2nd night now, the weather has been cool, a bit hot/cold, rainy not rainy. NOT that we’ve had anytime to relax and enjoy… We landed in Denver airport, picked up the rental car and drove 3 hours to Salida. The landscape and scenery is so mind blowing. Green fields, mountains with […]

4.7 Earthquake hits Southern Ca

We’re fine! But last night we were rocked by what seemed like an huge oversize semi zipping down our street. Only it wasn’t, it was an earthquake, 4.7 to be exact out of Hawthorne, CA. It only lasted a few seconds.. Todd & I were watching T.V with a friend after finishing up dinner. We grabbed the dogs and ran […]

Biopsy on Kidney Regions

Biopsy on Kidney Regions

Today, Fred met with his Dr.’s in Tampa for a biopsy on his kidney regions. From what I heard from mom (Gayle) all seemed to have gone well. He should have results back sometime by mid next week. I briefly spoke to him on the phone and he seemed to have his spirits up and was well enough to hit […]

Radiation, not a cure but could help.

I just spoke to both my father and aunt Eleanor. Today they were productive in running errands and meeting with a radiation doctor in Sarasota, Dr. Patrice (he treated my father years ago). The good news is radiation is scheduled to begin in a few weeks. 5 days a week for 3 weeks= 15 sessions. Transportation is provided which is […]

Siesta Key Beach

Siesta Key Beach

On the last day in FL, I took Todd down to siesta key. He had never seen it before… he was amazed at the beaches and scenic views of the turquoise waters and baby fine powder white sandy beaches. This was where most of my youth was spent. It just happened to be the weekend of the “Siesta Fiesta” so […]

Florida Visit

Florida Visit

Todd & I jumped on a plane on Tuesday night, 4/21 and flew direct to Tampa, FL. We were surprising my family, only Gayle & Liah knew we were coming. In typical Epner style- Todd & I arrived (5:30 am) and I couldn’t get ahold of Liah (figured she forgot us and slept in).  But to my mis-communication she had […]
