WHERE oh were can the Bechtler mint golds be?

 

I set out two Fridays ago, on a hunt for Bechtler mint gold coins and the first week went okay, found a beautiful silver eagle. 2003 W PR70 DCAM.

 

Nothing else when, on the way to Mount Airy, (Mayberry RFD)at my son's home two Fridays ago, my lovely wife Helen began complaining pretty heavy of a stomach ache. Saying it was not the usual pains, we stopped at a clinic and the doctor sent her away with a pain and antibiotic prescription.

 

I did not like the way he did not know what was causing it, so we went to the nearest clinic, which was closed, as was a 2nd one.

 

Finally I found an emergency room open in Tarboro, N. C.

 

To make a very long story short, appendicitis. 10 days later we get her out and two days after that, we finally got home.

 

I did find a nice coin at a great price. Only $35 dollars. and three steel pennies. I guess the real steal was the eagle.

 

More later.

Good thing you got a second opinion. My wife had similar stomach pains a few years back, doctors diagnosed ovarian cysts and gave her medications for a couple of weeks. Pain kept getting worse, and when they finally decided to operate to remove the "cysts" they found a ruptured appendix instead. That amounted to ten days in the hospital, thank goodness we had good insurance.

That's less than the cost of having the appendix graded and slabbed!

Full recovery with no adverse effects, but definately scary when you're sitting in the OR waiting room and the surgeon comes out after an hour and tells you "this isn't what we thought it was".

 

Hope your wife is doing well and good luck on future trips through the Carolinas (maybe even a Bechtler along the way).
