Should be okay to travel

Friday, June 21, 2013

I am not totally 100% back but good enough to travel to Florida tomorrow for Disney World. I got off the IV last night around 8pm and am feeling pretty good. According to my doctor it's the nature of my autoimmune disorders to have set backs. It's hard to wrap my head around that but will just have to accept that I will have good days and then could simply crash and burn and need IV. I think I will look on line for some support groups with similar disorders. We can at least support each other. For someone who has been healthy their whole life this is a bit hard to accept. But it is what it is and I will deal with it. I must say that my DH has been incredible supportive and says that we will just take it one day at a time and if I need to go to an ER while in Florida for IV we will just deal with it. My doctor is going to write an email explaining that I am her patient and what I have and what to put in the IV for me to carry with me just in case. Hopefully since I will be prepared, it won't happen.

I bet you all are getting tired of my continuing saga but it does help me so much to blog about all of this.

Thank you all again for your continued support and positive thoughts and prayers.
Have a terrific day.

    I am not tired of giving you support. I know what's it's like to be well one day and sick the next. I have Meniere's Disease, so I understand very well what you are going through. God bless you Sallie, and take care of yourself!!!!

    O Dear Sallie NEVER think we are tired of hearing about your health. You see I feel you need too share for one very important thing , it is PRAYER. We do not know how you feel inside, but we want you to know you are not alone that we all care about you & pray for you. I think it would be a good idea to also have a support group that knows exactly what you are going through. I will continue to pray as you are in Disney that you will remain healthy,it must be a comfort to know if any thing would go amiss that you have direct orders from your Doctor.
take care Sallie

    Don't worry about boring the audience. As my sister says, the blog is for the blogger. If it helps other people too, that's a bonus.

Sometimes you write about things that don't interest me. That's okay; I can move on to the next blog. At other times, your story touches my heart, or points out what I have to be grateful for, or gives me a small bit of insight into something that might work for me on my journey.

It's all good. I hope you have a wonderful trip!

    I understand the frustration of not knowing when or where. When I make plans I always say I will if possible anymore. Depending on the weather, how well I am able to breathe is a pain, but I still have my oxygen to fall back on. Happy you are well enough to travel and I think Disney is set up for almost every emergency. Hopefully you will just be able to enjoy the time with hubby and grandchildren. It is very hot and humid here right now. Today is 90 degrees but feels like 104.
