Before I left, my daughters were both ill. Sore throats, stuffy noses, coughs and fevers. I started taking crazy amounts of Vitamin C, Airborne, Emergen-C - you name it. The Thursday night before I left, I had a sore throat. Left for Vegas Friday morning, by Friday night I was feeling awful. Saturday morning, I started vomiting. Needless to say, my flight that wasn't supposed to leave until Tuesday, left on Saturday, late morning, instead.
I was so sad that my trip was ruined, but I refused to stay and be miserable and worse, get someone else sick :( I'm really sad I missed out on some fun with friends that I had planned for months, but before I left, I did manage to take away a few things! Lots of laughs, a picture I will cherish forever, hugs with Heidi, and a rockin' tattoo!
This is the back of my left shoulder. A reminder to go after my dreams, no matter what.
