…and NOT only in my dreams!!!!!
We have booked our flights home!! (Again!)
It had been a bit crazy here with a rough week after I had my bisphosphonate infusion. I had a rare reaction that caused my white blood count to drop very low and I was pretty sick with a fever for 10 days. Thank God I am much better this week and feeling back to my normal (or abnormal?) self again.
Dr. Cantu came over to check in on me and told us that my white count has now recovered- to a more normal level- all on it’s own!! Which is really great news!
We all decided that I will not be having another dose of that medication again. We will figure out something else at a later date.
For now, the most important thing is that I will be able to come home for Christmas!!!
The other day, our great friend Rosemary offered to help us book our trip to save my mom some aggravation.
It was so nice of her. We knew that this was not a small undertaking!
She proceeded to call Delta airlines from her home in Pennsylvania, with us watching her via video skype chat from Mexico (isn’t technology great?!)
A guy named Mike picked up the phone and she spent the next 10 minutes explaining RSD and all of my special medical requirements for the flight.
“I know this is a lot… and there are going to be some problems… ” Rosemary said.
Mike’s response back was quick and in a cheerful voice he said, “No! Don’t worry! On my line, I don’t have problems...I only have solutions!”
He wasn’t kidding!- Within about 30 minutes we had our new flights booked and Mike had spoken with his supervisor about all of the medical details.
Everything worked out- perfectly! Not one problem!
Even better yet, after hearing our story, Mike said he was honored to be a part of my homecoming and completely waved the fee’s that we owed the airline for canceling our previous flights! We would also be able to sit in the 1st row of first class on both flights! Awesome!
We thanked him for all of his help and gave him the link to this blog, so he could follow my progress and journey home.
Mom and I are still kind of in shock at how easily it all seems to be coming together this time around! We are so thankful, so happy and soooo excited to be coming home! Finally!!!
Please join us in praying that God continues to clear the path before us and for everything to continue to go this smoothly as we make our way home… for Christmas!!! ahhhh! I still can’t believe it!!
See you all very soon!
In God’s Love,
"This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses---“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!" (Isaiah 43:16-21)
