Where I stayed
Rushmore Shadows RV Resort
Made a quick decision to go to Black Hills Speedway last night - a local dirt track that ran a great show - if there's a dirt track in the area, you can pretty much assume that we'll get there.
A bit of a monkey-wrench in the works late last night, after we returned home from the races, as I suddenly suffered an attack of upper abdoment/chest pain, which wouldn't subside...finally, after an hour, we decided I'd better get looked at, so we went to the ER at Rapid City Regional Hospital and pulled an all-nighter. After some very quick action on the ER personnel's part, I was hooked up to an EKG, and lots of other things I hated, but they were pretty sure pretty quickly that it wasn't a heart problem. It was finally determined that I had multiple gallstones, and that I was suffering a gall bladder attack...something I'd never experienced before, and never want to experience again! It was strongly recommended that I get my gall bladder removed - not an emergency, but probably better sooner than later, so we'll probably look into that while we're in Colorado this next few weeks. Got there at 1 in the morning, got back home at 7 this morning...needless to say, we slept much of today away, and are still a little the worse for the wear!
