Hi Barb, that is great news. I hope you have a great time just lounging and being treated like a queen! They sound like wonderful friends. As for the airplane right I understand that very well with my breathing problems and the checkpoints and security hoops ya have to go through. I hope you asked for a wheel chair they can get you where you need to go qucikly and effeciently and without alot of energy on your part. The trip I just came back from I didn't ask for a wheel chair. That was a terrible mistake. I could walk 20 ft and have to set down to catch my breath for 5 min. (not knowing I had pnemonia at the time). It's just not worth it. If you havn't asked for one yet call the airline and tell them you need it. Tell your friends I think they are wonderful!

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I know just the thought of the traveling seems overwhelming but am hoping once you get to Florida that you will be able to just relax and forget about things for a while and just allow yourself to be pampered by what sounds like to be some great people. A change of scenery and the love of friends may be just enough to boost your energy and spirits. Don't worry about "disappointing" your friend if you aren't able to do much. I'm sure she will understand and want to just do what is best for you. I hope you have a nice trip.
Barb, I will be praying for you. I know how you feel about even the idea of the trip. I traveled around alot when i was on vacation. Not far but a few hours here and there. All I really wanted to do was stay in bed. The thought of traveling made me fearful and exhausted. I didn't think I could pack one more bag or travel one more mile. Even when it was time to go home I dreaded the trip. In the end though I did make it through and I was glad that I went. I didn't let others dictate to me what I was going to do though. When I got tired I laid down. I hope your friends can comprehend that and take care of you.
I hope you have a wonderful time

Just wanted to check in. I made it to Florida and Debbie had to work on Monday. So I slept most of the day on Monday. Yesterday, she took me around and showed me the area and took me to the gulf of mexico. I put my feet in the water and enjoyed the white sand. We had lunch at the hard rock cafe, and she pushed me around an outdoor mall in a wheelchair. Both she and her hubby are pampering me and caring for me. After our outing we came home and I was bundled onto the couch with a blanket and pillow for a nice nap. I'm going to bed by 10pm each night. Debbie starts her day at 4am, so she's not an night owl.
I slept until 8am this morning, while I was sleeping Debbie did her 3 mile morning run. In a bit we're going to go to the movies. We're also going to go go JoAnn's Fabrics, I'm going to pick out a pattern for a quilted handbag and the material and she's going to make me one over the next month or so and mail it to me. After that I'm sure she'll bring me home for a nap again. I'll be leaving Saturday afternoon and be home Saturday even at 5:30pm. Just wanted you all to know I'm doing alright and I made it safely. Thanks for thinking of me and I love you all.
I am glad you made the trip safely and that you are being pampered. You seem to be enjoying yourself and I am so glad. Enjoy the rest of your stay.
