cry  The next few days are going to be very hard for me.  My mother-in-law died this morning.  She was probably one of the sweetest people I've known.  I never understood the mother-in-law jokes because I had such a great one. She lived in Mo.and my husband was there with her.  I'm in Ca. and will have to fly to Mo. tomorrow for her funeral.  I am terrified of flying and will be flying without my husband for the first time. I know I will be fine.  I'm use to making myself do stuff that I would rather not.  I'll do this for her, and my husband, who has had a very sad week. But I'm still scared to death. Thank goodness I have a script for Xanax-only for flying.  Because so much of my fibro pain is in my 'rear' and hips I hope the flight does not have any delays.  I don't want to sit longer than necessary.  I won't be checking in until I get back home but I hope that everyone has a great and as painfree as possible week.

Sorry puppylover. {{{{{gentle hugs}}}}}}

I hope you can get aisle seats on your flights. It's a little better if you can stretch your legs, or even stand up for a bit now and then. "Airplane hips" is the worst!

I am so very sorry you lost someone you love dearly. Your hubby will be comforted by your effort to be with him. We'll all be right beside you for the trip so you'll be just fine. If you get frightened just close your eyes and think of us...who are thinking of you! ;-)

My prayers goes out for you Puppylover.  My mother-in-law is also in the hospital and we thought she wasn't going to make it but she is a little better.  She has also been a good one. 
I know the flight scares you when your going to be alone, but you need to be strong for your husband. 
May God Bless!

I'm so sorry for your loss Puppylover. It's never easy to lose a loved one. I hope that you do decide to take your Xanax; it will make your trip so much easier for you and also, once you've landed, your pain should not be as bad. When we get stressed and tighten muscles, it only adds to our pain. Hopefully, the Xanax will help you to remain calm on your flight. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family,
