Our Montana is like a pickle recipe

About 20 years ago my husband planted cucumbers so he could make pickles. Over the next few Summers he made pickles with the cucumbers he grew in our garden. Each year he tweaked the recipe and each year the pickles got better till one year I told him they were the absolute best pickles I ever had.

The next year he tweaked the recipe some more and they have never again been as good as that one perfect year's batch.

It's all a matter of personal taste, but I feel so fortunate that we bought our Montana during what -- to me -- was Keystone's perfect year for floorplans.

I say this because we are going through some fairly big health issues with my son and trying to decide whether I should quit my job to be there for him. My job pays for the luxuries, so the Montana would have to be sold. At this point it isn't necessary for me to quit, but I am going to miss that Monty if things get worse. My son will miss it too.

Life is about change and balance. Lynwood is right... your son matters most (but you already knew that I expect)
You'll know what to do when decision time comes. We wish you and your family the best.

Thank you all. I didn't mean to be a downer, and my son's conditions (stroke survivor, epilepsy, autistic) have been with him since he was very young. The stroke actually happened when he was a month old. But it's the seizures that concerning us as they are getting more frequent and he is needing hours to recover from each one. Unfortunately that means one of us has to stay home from our job while he is "sleeping it off". My husband can only work from home a few times a month, and my job requires me to be there.

Prayers are truly appreciated. We have seen miracles which can only be attributed to the power of prayer and the grace of God.

Thanks for your prayers, everyone. Chris's seizures seem to be settling down again. Poor kid. He has gone through these phases of increased seizures for a few years now. This was probably the worst phase so far.

And yes, I would quit my job and sell the Montana in a heartbeat to take care of him, if needed. It was just kind of sad thinking about it because going out in the our fifth wheel is one family activity we all really enjoy and it has helped to relieve stress and bring us all closer together as a family. If it has to happen then so be it, but we'll miss it. But for now things are looking brighter all around.
