Oh hippi that sounds like just what the doctor ordered. The mountains are so beautiful. Next month I'm going to Branson missouri for about 4 days than heading to arizona for 2 or 3 weeks. I feel like carrying a can of lysol around with me until than so no one gets any germs on me. lOL. You have a wonderful time and take notes we want to hear all about it when you get back!
love ya

Sounds like a relaxing wonderful vacation.  Find someplace to sit and just relax and look at the mountains.  My sister and I went there on vacation years ago and didn't want to leave.  It is soooo beautiful.  What part of Colorado are you going to.  If you feel up to it, go to the Garden of the Gods.  It is a spectular site to see but does require some walking so take it easy.  I hope you have a fantastic and wonderful and relaxing vacation.  I am going on a 4 day weekend (hopefully if physically able to) in October with my parents to a resort here in Missouri and am really looking forward to that.  Just to get away from everyday life for a while will be wonderful for you.  Let us know how wonderful your trip is when you get back.  HAVE A BLAST for all of us here who are envious of you now.  Just joking, just a little jealousy.  (((((((HIPPI)))))

Thank you everyone. I've been going non stop most of the day and am exhausted. I just keep telling myself not to stress about it though because I have almost a week of relaxation with little to no stress and that soon I'll be breathing in the cool mountain air.

Other good news is that my diarrhea seems to have ended and I didn't have a fever yesterday or today, so maybe things are looking up for my health.

I'll think about all of you while I'm gone and I'll catch up with everyone when I get back.
