On to Tampa FL/Laser Spine Institute

Connie waving good-bye to The Duchess
After spending one night in The Duchess, Sunday morning Connie and I packed our bags for a flight to Tampa Florida. We ate breakfast at a local restaurant in Bastrop Texas called the The Coffee Dog Roastery. The food was delicious and the coffee was wonderful. They serve a number of their own blends of coffee so we were able to try out several during our meal. Then on the Austin airport to catch our Southwest Airlines flight. With the South by Southwest festival going on in Austin, we did not know how busy the airport would be. We arrived early and had no problems or long waits in line going through security. The plane ended up being one-half hour late, but once everyone was on board the airplane the flight was uneventful (thankfully we had a direct flight).

We are now here in Tampa so that Connie can have a procedure done on her back to relieve the pain caused by a car wreck in 2013. Connie will be having the procedure done at the Laser Spine Institute here in Tampa. We know of several individuals who have come here to this medical group with excellent results. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be spent seeing doctors and other personnel at the Laser Spine Institute with the procedure currently scheduled for Thursday. We are hoping that the medical procedure done here will allow Connie to be pain free and more active in our travels around the USA and Canada. Keep Connie in your thoughts and prayers throughout this week.

Rain has followed us here in Tampa. When we awoke this morning, the rain was coming down so hard we could not see across the parking lot at our hotel.
