Five More Days....

Five more days.....that's what I keep chanting to myself.  Five more days, and I'll be enjoying the beautiful sunshine here:

Vegas, baby!  Oh, I seriously can't wait!  I get to enjoy a quick, kid-free, girl's weekend with some of my best friends from high school.  We'll see a show, see some sights, and definitely eat some delicious food.  I've been counting down to this for weeks....I need me some vitamin D!

Here's the problem...travelling always makes me a bit nervous.  I think that anyone who has CMT, or who has traveled with someone with CMT, will understand this feeling.  Will places be accessible?  Will there be adequate handicap parking? Will I have to walk a great distance, or stand in a forever-long line to get to do/see the things I want? 

The last time I went to Vegas, I took my standard wheelchair, and my sweet husband pushed me around everywhere we went.  (He's a total catch, right?)  And, it about killed him.  It was a lot of pushing.  I've decided not to take the wheelchair this time around, and though I'm firm in my decision, I still worry about the toll this choice will take on me.  My pulled quad muscle still isn't fully healed, and I've developed a fairly painful callous on my left foot where I wear my AFO.  To say the least, I'm a bit sore by the end of the day.

Anyway, I'm trying really hard to not worry about things.  Don't want to let CMT get in the way of my fun, right?  Honestly, I can't wait to get away with these ladies....a great time will definitely be had!  Wish me luck!
