An update on George, and some familiar visitors

Buffalo Ridge Camp Resort
Custer, SD

George had a post-surgery appointment with his surgeon yesterday.
We took the drive into Rapid City,
and met with him at 10 am.
The lab did some blood work first,
and his numbers looked good.
George's next surgery will be on June 22.
At that time Dr. Miller will remove 6-12" of George's colon,
staple it back together,
and all this will be done laparoscopically.
He doesn't foresee any problems that will
cause a colostomy bag,
so we're thankful about that.

After his appointment,
we did some grocery shopping at Walmart,
then came home early afternoon.

When we got back to the campground,
we were pleased to find that
Debbie Lambert and her friend Diane
stopped to stay here on their way west!
We all worked together at Amazon last year.
the 6 of us got together for dinner
at the Buglin' Bull.
The food was fantastic,
and the company even better!

They're sticking around a couple more days to explore the area.

Today was back to work.
It's been hot..HOT here in Custer!
George and I got working on the pool,
skimming the pine needles off,
and making it nice for the guests.

Our teepees are coming right along..

They're pretty cool,
and for $75/night you can stay in one.
It will have its own covered picnic table too.
Just follow the arrowheads :-)


  1. Really glad to hear no bag and this next step for George is not going to involve a knife. Love the teepees! So sorry to hear it's hot there. I would not expect that of Wyoming. It's 94 in Virginia today which is outrageous for early June.

  2. You don't know how lucky George is not to have a bag. I have one temporarily and they really are no fun. I'm hoping to get my repair and bag removed in August, can't wait.

  3. Isn't it amazing what can be done now without being "cut".

  4. That teepee looks pretty cool! Fun!
