We made it and are settled in at the condo. The weather was beautiful for the trip down and it looks like it's going to be beautiful while we are here. Tomorrow is a freebie day for us and we'll do a little bit of grocery shopping and exploring. Then my little sis will be here tomorrow night and then we will all go to Disney on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
I must admit to you all that I'm pooped. I did just a tiny bit of driving yesterday so kudos to Kevin for doing all of it. He is absolutely the best and is used to carrying the burden of driving when we do long and short trips. The boys did really well overall too... they are keepers!
We looked online and Disney does rent motorized chairs and I'm thinking we might go that route considering how tired I am with just the traveling. To be honest, I hate feeling like this... better than usual, but not the old me. I don't know if I will ever feel like the old me. Kevin and I were talking the other day about the whole concept of feeling good/better. Even though I skipped my chemo and I do feel so much better, I still get upset stomach symptoms here and there and don't really know why, but then we realized that even without chemo symtoms, I am STILL SICK. I suppose I can't get that worked up considering that the crux of the situation is still the same and hasn't changed. It was just a funny thing to think about.
I guess my discomfort with the whole wheel chair thing is all about pride, my pride. It could also be the fact that I don't really want to think about myself as being weak or less than the way I was before the diagnosis. We'll see, but either way, I will do what is best for me and the family. We are so happy to be here and the boys are super excited. I can't wait to see their faces and witness their excitement once we get there.
Until next time...
