In addition to not sleeping, Kay was in excruciating pain. We drove to the Mission Regional Hospital Emergency Room, where Kay was admitted quickly, and attended to by a staff of RNs and Dr. Rodriguez. After a brief, but thorough, examination, he diagnosed Kay with shingles, and she was given a couple of injections for pain, and some prescriptions. Back at the motorhome, she was able to sleep (drug induced). The efficiency and quality of care with which the ER operated was very, very good.
I took advantage of the Thursday golf special at Palm View Golf Course in McAllen, and was pleasantly surprised at the grassy fairways and quality of the new greens. Playing solo through the first nine, I joined a couple—Gil and Lucille—from Winnipeg, Canada, for the back nine. They were a delightful couple who play at 11:30 AM everyday.
