I agree with the others...is there anyone else that can do this drive instead of you? Otherwise..I would just be upfront with your husband to say that you will need to plan in however many 'stops' as necessary if he wants you to go..tell him that you would certainly do the same for him if he was hurting...
For me...before I had heated seats in my car...I used one of those fairly inexpensive but great car seats that have built in massage/heat that plugs right into the lighter spot...They sell them at Target/WalMart...and even when it's warm outside...I keep the AC on high in the car to use the heat for my back/neck...It really is great to keep those muscles from getting stiff/sore..
Whenever I travel..when I was married, with friends, or by myself..I always built in many stops along the way to get out and stretch my legs/neck as well as potty breaks because I believe in staying well hydrated...I can't afford to be stingy on the water....I have too much fatigue without..
So...I just factor in the quick 10 minute stops every hour and half to 2 hours traveled.
Eating some good healthy snacks helps me as well stay alert
...and of course...having my satelitte radio!! Gotta have great tunes to sing and make the drive fun:)
I really miss being able to travel by car as much as I used to because of the pain...
I will certainly pray for your safety as well as your pain levels...(still hope that you can find someone else to go instead!)....
