Getting ready to leave for mini-vacation

August 9, 2010 at 9:11 am


I do understand! I’m getting ready to leave this morning for 4 days at Crystal Beach (near Galveston). My daughter and several of her friends are going along also … otherwise, this is something I could not do on my own. I also think this will be a little easier since I am not dealing with in-laws. I don’t care how great the in-laws are, I believe that adds an element of stress … so, northernguitarguy, wish you could vacation as I can vacation! Because I really plan on “vacating” my CIDP this week – no matter what it takes!!!!

Fortunately I get along with all my daughter’s friends (and my daughter) as if they were my friends. We have a good time and even if they don’t understand my limitations, they accept them and won’t let me do anything! They planned all the food, went to the grocery store and plan on doing all the prep/cooking. My daughter wants to make certain I eat healthy to make up for the margaritas I plan on drinking!!

I’m fortunate – they really are all about making certain I enjoy whatever I can! I am constantly amazed at all the things I can find that make me feel grateful despite the CIDP! Wouldn’t wish this on anyone, but the family and friends that have stepped up to the plate for me on this make it bearable. I truly am a Blessed woman!!!

Well – wish me luck with the sand and the surf … and the stairs up to the beach house!!!!!
