Our last week in San Antonio in spite of the continuous rain was spent with family and friends. On Thursday we met Pia for lunch at Huisache in New Braunfels. I had my usual..salmon sandwich with beer cheese soup and John the Portobella sandwich. We then to visit Larry who is doing very well. We have noticed an improvement since our first visit. There is a new treatment for all types of brain tumors called Gammaknife. Suggest you google to learn more about this. It can be done as an outpatient and is non surgical. Wish it had been around when I had my meningioma tumor in 2006. As I understand it, the tumor caused the leg numbness and the lung cancer. They will now do a genetic marker to determine the type of pill for the chemo that targets the cancer instead of the IV route. Anyway we wish him all the best and will keep in touch with Pia on his progress.
Thursday evening we went over to Eric and Cindy's for fajita dinner..um delish. We will get together again before we leave for spaghetti dinner. Kendyl signed one of her favorite songs for us. She performed it in class as an assignment. She will continue to take sign language through HS.

Friday evening we had Darin and Kerry over for dinner.Had planned to eat outside,but rain forced us inside. I served crab cakes, mixed vegetables, salad,wine and fruit salad for dessert. Enjoy their company and will see them in Austin when we get together with Christine and family at Oasis for lunch on the 31st.
We managed between the rain to visit Randolph AFB where John retired after 22 years in 1979 and Lackland AFB where he took his basic training in 1957. They are now part of the Joint Bases San Antonio. We previewed the campground at Lackland and decided that Fort Sam is nicer and more convenient for visits with friends and family.
We still haven't resolved the issue with the closet door and after 2 phone calls to Fleetwood parts have decided that only solution is to find a cabinet maker to make us two doors so they will match.
We lost a hubcap somewhere in San Antonio due to the many potholes,so went to Pep Boys for another set. When John tried to put them on, a piece of plastic broke off, so a return trip and they replaced.

Around 830PM received a tornado warning on our phones and saw the military police going through the campground warning everyone to take shelter in the bathhouse. A first experience for us and thankful that the warning was soon over. For the next few hours had terrible thunderstorms, lighting and flooding in some low areas. They have the largest fishing worms I have ever seen..even the birds leave them alone.

Today John managed to fix the closet door with Elmer's glue, screws and perseverance. What a relief.
In the afternoon we gathered at Eric and Cindy's for spaghetti dinner. Our last get together before we leave on Tuesday for Austin and the La Hacienda RV Resort on Lake Travis.

It has been a good visit in spite of weather. Very relaxed and spending time with family is always a blessing.
We plan to return next year in March.
