We’re off!

I’m ready!

We fly out in half an hour!!! We’re ready! Looking forward to this two week trip  for the last week left me a zombie with  sporatic surges of panic.


One morning my husband found me just standing by the door with keys in my hand without moving. I knew that once I left home I would have to start preparing my final days at work and preparations for surgery so I just didn’t budge. :)

Oct 23rd: Today! We fly all day and arrive in Philadelphia at 11:30 p.m. We arrive too late to stay at the Ronald McDonald House.

Oct 24th: We move into the Ronald McDonald House and go to Shriners Hospital for Children at 1:50 p.m.

Oct 31st: Laelia is a bunny dressed  like a duck (yes I got that funny costume worked out last minute) for Halloween in the hospital. I’m going as… well let’s just say it was the scariest thing I could think of depending on who you are. I’ll post pictures when I get home in two weeks and  let’s see if you guessed right!  ;)

Oct 25th-Nov 1st: We have intense out-patient physical therapy everyday.

Nov 2nd: Pin removal surgery with the most talented Doctor van Bosse.

Nov 4th: Fly all day.

Nov 6th: Officially home.

Nov. 7th: School meeting and my first day of work.

Wish us luck!
