Change Of Plans

We had great plans--today we were supposed to be headed to Louisville KY, with reservations to stay here.  We had planned to have Thanksgiving with David's sister. 
David, his brother Darryl, two of the grandkids and the two puppy girls and I all in one vehicle.  Everything was planned to a T.  I even had gotten a prescription for medication to help me relax.   I don't get car sick on long trips, I get car crazy.  I take books, magazines, my laptop--you name it to try to keep me sane--but ultimately the craziness sets in.  And you will hate me.  And if you are traveling with me, I will hate you.  I squirm, I whine, I snort, I sigh. Buuuttt...........Saturday I found myself in the ED....kidney stone passed but near septic with a kidney infection....I have been sicker, but that is not saying a lot.  With a temperature hovering near 102, gagging with the dry heaves, rigors and a feeling of impending doom, (Oh and I wound up with my IV in my foot!!--the only place they could find to stick me!!)    I thought well I guess I won't be going to KY.......Thanks to great doctors, nurses, lab and X-ray techs I'm home today and fine.
I am very thankful for being home, being on the mend and having a great husband who always stands by me.  Happy Thanksgiving To All.

Oh, dear!

Most grateful that you are home and okay. KY trip was not meant to be. It is good that this happened BEFORE you got on the road.

Feel better soon. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and sending you a hug.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

In a way you were lucky. It could have happened while on the road or as a guest in Louisville.

Get better fast, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
