season cut short

My camping season was cut short by my doctor today. Due to complications from an accident 5 years ago,that badly injured my leg, surgery to amputate will be early August. I promised my nephew I would take him camping some time, so the time has come. Since my brother died, he looks to me to do things with him. This is also the first year my wife and I are planning on snowbirding, hopefully that will still happen.

So sorry to hear about your accident and forth coming surgery. Time to give your nephew that camping trip you'll both be talking about for years to come.

Sad news for sure Mr. Wise. Prayers UP for a speedy recovery.

And blessings to you for keeping that promise to your nephew. Memories are priceless.

That is indeed sad news to receive, good luck with your surgery and with achieving your goal of snow birding in Florida, I highly record it.

May your surgery give you a healthier life and many happy campouts with your nephew. And a great new life style (being a snowbird) with your wife
