I JUST got back in town last week & I'm already getting ready to leave for another speaking event. Thankfully, I won't have to deal w/ airport security on this trip! I swear some of the TSA agents at the Memphis airport should be taking me out to dinner b/c they've had a bit too much physical contact with me over the last year! I don't know how some people go out of town every few days for work... unless they have a private jet! Tomorrow, I'll be making a quick 3 hour drive over the bridge (we here in Memphis refer to it as the Memphis Bridge but I think it's actually the Arkansas Bridge... not really sure) to Little Rock. Mom gets to come w/ me on this trip so of course, I'll be letting her drive. (hey, never pass up on the opportunity to get some beauty sleep) I still haven't posted anything on my Michigan trip last week so I'll do a post on both trips once I'm home from Arkansas. Hopefully I remember my camera this time b/c I got to Michigan & discovered I left it at home & ended up having to use my phone as a camera. I hate going anywhere without my camera! You never know when you will see something or someone you want to snap a picture of !Anyway, I'm going to head to bed now. Have to get plenty of sleep so that I can get up, walk out to the car & go right back to sleep! See you in a couple of days. =)
I am a VERY lucky survivor of meningococcal disease. I contracted it in June of 2001. I was in a coma for 6 weeks & for the 1st week, my Dr.s weren't expecting me to survive. If you haven't been vaccinated for it, DO IT! You have no clue how fast meningococcal disease can destroy your body & your life! Within 48 hours of contracting it, I was in a coma on full life support! I have been in & out of hospitals ever since. I've had at least 30 surgeries due to complications from the disease.
