Airstreamin on hold for now

after 15 years and 4 airstreams, my favorite camping season is on hold.
Aug 28 i sufferref aM series of TIA strokes. i have been hospitalized
or in rehab since. Made some progrss and will go home in 12 days.
thankful for that but frustrated as heck too. im the midst of replacing my converter and other stuff that will have to wait...
could have been way worse, so I am lucky for that, but the lifestyle change this will bring is not welcoming ...still wrestling with not being able to play guitar too. a huge part of my life.

Not a doc but TIAs usually pass. Follow the docs advice. Every new year is a new adventure with new aches and pains. My best therapy has been my dogs. They won't let me sit around and become a vegetable. Would that make me a vegetarian? Best Wishes.

Am sorry to hear about your health challenges. Yes, life can change drastically in a blink of an eye. But having a positive attitude is helpful and it appears as though you have that base covered!

Wishing you the best!
