It's been a fun time on the European Extravaganza. Internet access has been spotty so I haven't been online too much.
We are now at my Mother-in-law's home and have been to, Amsterdam, Germany and Poland since we left the ship on the 9th.
The biggest problem has been that EVERYONE wants to feed us and it isn't just a light snack. They are huge feasts. When we got to my Mother-in-law's we asked to not be fed. I've gained almost ten pounds since we left the cruise.
I hope everyone is doing well. We are doing fine and having fun. On Friday we fly to England for 3 weeks.
Here is a little Gasthaus we stayed at in Germany. It was a last minute decision because my cousin booked our hotel but put in the wrong days so there was no room at the Inn. We just pulled into this place and had a lovely night.

Wish I could say it was a great Tuesday here but alas, I spent all afternoon and all night in the ER. The mesh they implanted for my hernia repair is grossly infected. I think my body is rejecting the implant. Now that I'm in Dallas, I'm 8 hours away from the surgeon who did my surgery. No one here wants to help me with this other than to give me a multitude of very strong antibiotics. In the end, I think this thing is going to have to come out. Hence, looks like my summer fun in Dallas will be cut short and I'll be going back home to deal with this infection so my surgeon can treat this issue. After an all-nighter in the ER, I got two shots in the buttocks (one in each cheek) of Clindamyacin. Sent home with prescriptions of Clindamyacin and Bactrim DS to be taken together!! My stomach is going to give me hell!! Not looking forward to the 8hr drive home.
This also means I cannot dog sit for my friend here in Dallas as planned. She had bought a plane ticket to California to go see her Mom. I feel so bad letting her down.
Other than that, we did make another trip to the casino where we got another comped crab and steak buffet (clarified butter and all). I won the last time, broke even this time. Had a great time. For Oklahoma, this casino is equal to and better than some I've been to in Vegas. Really surprised me the first time I went. Kevin Costner's band is going to play there in a few weeks.
I wanted to get tickets, but of course they are sold out.
