(ok...we all made it....it's a miracle!)

First of all...I cannot post pics again because my MOM will not hook up her wireless (she's afraid people will come into her computer and steal all of her genealogy files!) SO, tomorrow...we'll find the ethernet cables and stretch them throughout the house!!!

Ok...now for a little taste of our day's adventures. It started last night. I brought out the oxygen concentrator that we got to take on the plane....I needed to make sure that the batteries were charged. WELL, the oxygen company didn't send the right cord to charge the batteries. THEN, while I was changing the batteries...I noticed that the entire bottom of the machine was BROKEN...you could see all the insides of the machine! THEN, one of the requirements to take a concentrator on the airplane, is for it to have an airplane symbol on it (the airlines are just trained to look for the picture...not the actual names of machines)...and of course, this one didn't have the symbol on it.

SO...at 8:30 this morning we set out to switch the O2 machines...luckily they had another one! But, then we had to run to Walgreens...because they gave me DOUBLE DOSAGE prevacid pills for Isaac. Thank goodness I was paying attention...but, it would have been too hard to cut that pill in 4ths! So, I had to call them and take the drugs back to the pharmacy for an exchange. (I guess too much prevacid wouldn't hurt..but, scary!)

Now...we're in muggy North Carolina!! I'm going to sweat my last ten pounds off!!! YIPPIE!

I WILL post pics tomorrow...just wanted everyone to know that we made it safe and sound...and my Isaac slept the entire flight (with Eli sleeping for half of it!)...I am one lucky mama!!!

I'm telling mom you are talking about her. I see you waited until she went to bed to do the post! :)

Just go next door to Jamie's to post the pics. Abby won't mind. (will you Abby??)

Have fun and please make sure you get to go see grandma and granddaddy. They need their Eli fix. :)

Glad you made it to NC safely! A Roller trip wouldn't be complete without a little chaos, but I'm glad the oxygen got all switched so you could get on the plane!

Have fun with your parents!

Love ya,

YAY! You made it! I'm glad you are there. Good catch on all the medication/equipment stuff. Wow, I guess you have to stay on your toes with that stuff, huh?

Have a great time. Post pics when you can. I'm having some serious Roller withdrawals.

p.s. What a little sweetie pie, sleeping on the plane for you. Can I just eat him up?? :)

Glad you made it to NC safe and sound, and without too much incident :) You always have crazy travel stories! Way to catch those crazy pharmacists...it is not even fun to cut a prevacid in half, let alone fourths! I am thankful we just use the entire 30mg pill...no more worries :)
