Another Use for Duct Tape

It's been a slow couple of weeks here in OKC. Sheryl had her final back procedure on the 6th, which helped tremendously. However she has not been able to enjoy it due to contracting a bad kidney infection causing pretty bad back pain in it's self. We hit the local Urgent Care for treatment and thought that would be that. Not so lucky, a week later and Sheryl was still feeling really bad and thought she may have gotten more than just a kidney infection. Sunday, we thought we'd drop into the ER and get her checked out, which we did. Finding out the infection was still there, as it wasn't treated correctly at the urgent care. The Doc gave her a new antibiotic which is working much better, so she should be up and about pretty soon.
By now you are prob wondering what the above picture is all about?? We went to Walmart to fill her script and as we were coming out we spotted this. Of course this being Oklahoma it's not an unusual sight to see various things duct taped together, What stuck us as really funny is, its a pretty new Lexus and it is duct taped to the hilt!!! I guess the owner spent all his money on the car and couldn't afforded the insurance to fix it.
Our other small change for the week is, a new cell phone. We were using Strait Talk out of Walmart as the pricing is right, however we have been learning more and more, you get what you pay for. Poor customer service and finding out that many of the companies that are leasing them towers are dropping them, so service is getting worse. We settled on Verizon and one of their smart phones. I must say the speed and service is so much better.
Well with Sheryl on the mend, we should beable to get out a little more and see some sights while were here. So until next time..........................

The Doctor at the urgent care may have treated Sheryl correctly but the problem lies within our own immune system. If she has been on antibiotics in the past her body may be resistant to them thus meaning you need a different antibiotic to do the trick. Wishing her a speedy recovery! Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.

I was afraid you were going to say that you duct taped Sheryl's back.

Hope she kicks the infection quickly, she has been through so much she deserves to feel better.

I'd have expected all that duct tape on the car to be something you'd see in the deep South, but then it would have been on an old pickup truck instead of a Lexus. ;c)

Sure hope Sheryl bounces back quickly and is feeling better soon!

What a hoot on that duct tape! At least it's somewhat color coordinated.

We use trac fone. We don't use the phone much so this isn't a problem. $100. a YEAR for each phone. We opted to get one phone that uses AT&T, and one phone that uses Verizon. Because we are traveling through out the US, we can get reception on at least one of the phones most of the time.
