Maggie Had Major Surgery
Maggie had to have her lung replaced, aka air conditioner unit and because she is so old, they had to give her an entirely updated complete unit. Yes, our bank account took a huge hit but we have been in worse predicaments and we will once again work through this one.
For the past few months, the unit had been having a difficult time coming on but then would work fine and since we really didn’t have the funds we just lived with it. Then the past few weeks, it didn’t seem to be cooling as well as it had been for the past 13 years and then the unit just died during 100+ temperatures we have been having here in Amarillo. As bad as that sounds, at least we could hang out in the clubhouse. We are also grateful that the temperatures at night are usually in the 60’s so we only hung out in the clubhouse until about midnight then with windows open we were able to come home and sleep. But then back to the clubhouse around 10am since Maggie began getting hot again.
For a temporary fix, we bought one of those portable units which was totally useless. Hopefully we can return this unit and get a total refund. It was keeping it at 92/94 and would not get any cooler which made it unbearable for us. Then due to the humidity we were dumping the water every hour…ugh!
Waiting for repairs on Maggie felt as if we were in the hospital waiting room, waiting for a loved one to have surgery and in a way, that is true. She is our loved one and it was absolutely saving not only her life, but ours too! Now we can plan to have a cool...cool...summer!
