Oh Dani, I've been so worried about you having to travel in so much pain and the whole family getting over that stomac yuk they had!! Both Lisa & I have been thinking about Y'll and hoping your home (sweet home!) resting up from your travels! If you see this and are too tired or sore to write back, just give us a "OK, safe at home!" and DON'T write a dissartation till your rested up a bit!! I know you suffered alot in travelling w/ your family and I think your a saint for doing it all for them!!! I know that Miss Rose & Miss Tessa will always remember their first trip to Sunny (HOT!) Fla!!!
Much Luv & Bigg Hugs!!!

I have also been thinking about you Dani.  I hope you are able to rest and relax, and you're not in too much pain.  Take care my friend.

    I made it home Okay *warm huggs* The stomach flu ran its course on all of us (10-12hrs of vomiting on each of us) but it was hardest on my Bumblebees. It hurts so much when they are sick. The "sick cry", for any parent, is the most helpless and horrible sound. It tears my heart up. Bless their little hearts they just wanted mommy to fix it and I couldnt. ...then the stomach flu hit everyone we had come in contact with the previous few days. So, only 2 folks were well enough to see us off at the air port. But we have made it home thankfully.
  ..I came home to a dissaster ( I am VERY VERY ANGRY and upset to say the least!!!!! VERY MAD!)... Also, I dont know what the heck is wrong with my back and hip. Frankly its just rediclious.. it just.. Bleh I can't sit long enough to go into it right now. 
     I miss you all very much, but I will try to sit and give a real update later.

Hi Dani:

I'm so glad to hear that you and your family have made it home safely and that you are all recovering from that awful stomach flu.

I'm sorry that you returned home to more difficult circumstances to deal with.

How is that spot on your back that was swollen, red, & hot?

Please take the time you need to get settled back in at home, but we look forward to hearing an update from you when you can.

Hang in There!

Oh Dani Girl , So sorry you and the bees got sick , but I'm sure you being together with your babies at least made it a little more bearable . You did take on a lot with the trip so maybe your body just needs a little recovery time Sweetheart . Give it a chance to regroup and try not to be frustrated , we'll be awaiting your next update my girl , please stay positive and rememnber the trip you just completed , that was a significant accomplishment , don't dismiss it so fast .Traveling is wearing on top atheletes let alone folks like us Dani girl so first , honor yourself for enjoying something wonderful with your family , second for being positive and overcoming anything that might have seemed like it might have stopped you , it didn't . Focus on these amazingly important sucesses , you did so well !!!!! Your a real tigress with your bees and have great determination !!! Congradulations Big Time . Love Ya Mikel
