A couple of weeks ago in my post ‘Look Forward‘, I wrote the following –
This past Tuesday in my post ‘Seeking a Home Base’, I mentioned Gary and I are searching for a location to plant roots and use as our home base. A trip is planned in a couple of weeks and we will be visiting different locations that best meet our needs. The trip will also include visiting a major Cancer Center located in Tampa, Florida. A referral is submitted and a consultation appointment is in place.
Currently there is much planning taking place for a future move to a more permanent location and finding a new medical facility for my healthcare. As indicated a couple of days ago in my post ‘Exactly 1 Month‘, I am feeling good with my recovery. I will admit though, I do not feel excellent as I am having difficulties with some pain and other minor issues. I am not sure if they are related to the surgery or my cancer diagnoses and if over time I will overcome these minor issues.
In today’s post, I write the following –
We left the Naval Air Station Pensacola RV Park 2 days ago, and stored the RV for the next couple of weeks.
Gary and I are driving to Orlando, Florida today and we will be staying at Gary’s older brother’s home and taking care of his mom while his brother and wife are out of town for a week. This coming week we will be visiting locations for a possible permanent location to call home base. I will fill you in on what we are looking at for a permanent residence in a future post.
This coming Monday I will have an appointment with a new Oncologist Dr. L. with Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. Per U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Cancer rankings 2016-2017, Moffitt Cancer Center is ranked #1 in the Southeast and in the state of Florida and #6 in the nation. After visiting their website and the recent communication I have had so far has me impressed with them and my hope is this feeling will continue after my appointment this next Monday.
In about 10 days we will make our way back to Pensacola. Depending on our visits this coming week, upon our return to Pensacola, our plan may well be to hook the RV to the truck and drive immediately back to central Florida.
We feel strongly about locating ourselves in central Florida and we still have plans for some future travel adventures. The period of our initial stay in central Florida depends on my health because the first part of April is when the next round of image tests will take place. The results of these tests will dictate our immediate future plans upon our relocation.
