I had my Dr C appointment a little while ago and we talked extensively about heading out of town to see my folks. Bottom line is she thinks it’s a big jump but a good idea as long as I don’t put too much pressure on myself, I make sure that I take care of myself while we’re out there, and if it ends up not working out that I don’t consider it a failure.
So… J has taken tomorrow off work (thank you!!!) and we’re going to hit the road in the morning while I’m still groggy (don’t worry, J will be driving in the morning). I will be taking along a little bag of things just in case, including some things to keep my hands busy, a pair of headphones so I can blast loud music, maybe a magazine or something like that, and PRNs just in case. As I have said many times – J makes everything better and easier, too, so she will also be a huge help just by being there.
We’ll show up, visit, and be back on the road so we’re home before it gets dark. I’ve found that it’s a lot easier for me to drive toward home than away from it, so I will probably drive for at least part of the way back.
If everything goes well, we should be getting home around this time tomorrow. If it doesn’t, it will be okay. Either way, I expect I will be farther from home tomorrow than I have been in the last couple of years!
Wish us luck!
