We moved to Arizona in April 2016 to be closer to the Mayo Hospital, Mickey with his autoamune diseases the latest was gastroprosis in February of 2016. Madeline had breast cancer in 2015, was treated at the Mayo Clinic as well.
Spent many hours looking for the perfect home closer to our chosen medical facility and after looking at many we decided on the first Senior Living Community we had looked at. Pebble Creek allows potential home buyers to rent for 3 days to see what its like to live in a "resort comunity". It is a lovely area on the west side of Phoenix. There is so many activities, two club houses and golf courses and the compound has a guard at the gate. After being burglized twice we were sold on that idea, a safe and secure neighborhood.
Mickey doesn't participate in many activities, he mostly writes and rewrites on his novels, and paints on his art paintings. As for me I am involved in many clubs and sometimes I have to say NO and not go to all that is offered.
His tummy causes a few problems, the food doesn't move as quickly as it should and makes for some uncomfortable times if he eats the wrong food. No fiber, no grains. All the foods I tried to get him to eat. He likes eating the ice cream, pies, cookies. Sugar is easy to digest. Fruit is something he really misses.
Most days he feels ok, very difficult to get him to stay down even when he doesn't feel great. He has found a way to attatch a stablizing bar so he can continue to paint and not have a shakey hand. He is an ingenuis person.
