It's been wonderful being here with Mom helping her to recover after everything she's been through. This visit was not for fun or vacation but to be support and assistance to my family. I'm so glad that I was able to come and it will be very hard to leave. I know that Mom is in the best of care and she will only continue to progress after I leave. The next time I see her she'll be back to her normal self and we'll be at the beach celebrating!
I am so thankful to Dr. Chamberlain and my office manger Sonia for allowing me to take time off. My entire office has been so loving and understanding during these times. I also wanted to thank my neighbor Michelle who works for United Airlines. She was so generous giving me her buddy pass to fly standby at an affordable rate during the dates I needed. Michelle has spent so much time in helping me find the very best flights and she's great about knowing how to get around the system. I feel like I have my own personal flight manager, plus she's an amazing neighbor on top of it all.
Unfortunately, the flights are extremely overbooked with too many standby passengers waiting in line for Phoenix during this spring break season. I'll have a few more days with Mom and have a long day of travel ahead on Monday.
Thank you everyone for being patient, understanding and loving during this time!
