Carol, wish I could help you, but my experience level has been superseded. Just fell across this post, and after reading some of your post, decided to visit the Ojai website. You do incredible work, and viewing some of the other artist work, is equally incredible. Makes me want to rush out to Ojai for a week or so. I have a budding artist here at home and will be showing her your work. Thanks, for a peephole view of some outstanding artists. Hope you get your propane problem fixed. Terry.

Carol,

This is one of those situations when my late father (Aage Sr.) would say, "In a hundred years, we'll all look back on this and laugh." Danish humour, you have to be there to get it, I guess.

The bear story was fabulous, although I imagine at the time, the value of the story or the humour it carried weren't top of mind for you.

Have patience with your Aluminum Palace, they take a bit of getting used to.

As for the tanks, one thing I discovered about mine was that they can sometimes get polluted with air. I complained to the guy I always see at the place where I get them filled that one of my tanks never seemed to go completely empty, but wouldn't give any more gas after a certain point.

He opened a screw on the neck of the tank as he filled it, and let a whole bunch of air out. It was obvious when the air was expelled and gas was coming out, becasue the gas looked like fog.

And remember the Bob Dylan lyric, "She's an artist, she don't look back." If you ever figure out what that means, please let me know?

Memory Problems

Carol, I have just read this thread and am very concerned about you. Memory problems often follow surgery - especially if you've reached a certain age.

Most of the time it is minor and passes with time, tho yours may be made more acute by the temperature. A little hypothermia on top of surgery and general anesthesia could probably make anyone dinghy. There's a very slight chance you may have had or be having TIA's (transient aschemic attacks) which can be precursors to a stroke, or related to blood clots forming in your legs and then breaking loose.... which can be a post-surgical complication. PLEASE let your doctor know about these "brain farts" just to make certain they aren't of the serious variety. He may want you to double up on your daily aspirin or take other blood thinners for a bit just to make sure.

Bundle up, keep warm, and write directions to your address along with the address and lot number on your arm in ballpoint ink. That way if you DO get disoriented, you'll have a good chance of reorienting yourself until this passes.

You get well, you hear?

Paula

I'm seeing carbon monoxide symptoms, if you cant think straight and can't get warm. Get a Carbon Monoxide monitor, meanwhile get a bunch of fresh air. I found you don't know until you go outside into fresh air, then you fall down sick.

In light of the back-to-back post and disorientation you have experienced you really need to have the doctor check your pain meds to see if they are too strong...lucky duck. Anyway, you might also ask if it will be long term or just temporary. When I first read your post from this morning I was quiet concerned about your safety and well being.

I revise my prior post - NevadaGeo is ON POINT!

Get out of the trailer and buy a Carbon MONOXIDE monitor NOW! Alternately if you are in a smaller town or rural area, you may be able to call your local fire department and ask them to run an urgent check for you.

Carbon Monoxide bonds with your red blood cells so that your body cannot pick up enough oxygen when you breathe even in clear air. You don't recover just by getting out into fresh air, though it will stop the toxins from building up any more. You gradually recover from CO poisoning as your body creates new red blood cells - which can take months if you are seriously affected. In the worst cases, transfusions may be necessary to keep you alive!

Please turn off the gas at the bottles until you are sure there is no CO problem.

We care. Paula

Seems like there is a lot of concern for your health and you do seem to be a little off maybe you should get that propane checked and the co moniter and tell your dr about your memory lapses and confusion and being cold.Sooner not later.

Carol is not posting regularly, any more, and does seem disoriented. We're all worried. Is anyone close enough to check on her?

I'll call, but it's two hours earlier there, so think I'll wait awhile.

I have called the Longhorn several times, no answer. Left a message on their machine about an hour ago, asking that someone check on Carol if they have not seen her lately, due to many concerns. Asked that someone call me back if Carol is NOT okay, otherwise to tell her to please post and let her friends here know she IS okay.

We are on the road, will post if I hear something.

Maggie

Thanks Viking and Maggie. It is likely that her problem may be related to her Airstream. I thought she had turned the gas off until she could get it checked. I'm glad someone was paying closer attention (and knows more about CO poisoning that I do).

If anyone hears anything, please post ASAP.
