Hi Everyone. I'm flying back to FL for a week to help my brother with my 82 y/o Dad who is being discharged from the nursing facility. I'm trying to remain calm and happy. Hopefully I will not flare this time. I'll update when I get a chance. Love, Butterflake

Donna, I hope this trip will be easier on you than the last one. Your positive attitude will take you a long way but don't forget to take it slow and easy. Take things at your own pace, not someone else's. Not that I need to tell you that, huh. Let's all cross our fingers and say in unison, Please don't flare....please don't flare! I really mean that. Traveling can be so hard on our bodies can't it.

I hope your dad is ok.

Let us know how things go.

(((((Butterflake))))) I'm worried that the trip is going to trigger another flare, especially since you were so sick not very long ago. I know you have to go though. I hope things go okay with your dad and that you don't get too worn out. Take care of yourself and let us know how things went when you get back.
