Jake and I all settled in for the night in a Comfort Inn in Jackson, Michigan and back in the Eastern Timezone, so it is now around 10pm. There is The CW channel on the TV here, so I can watch “The Vampire Diaries” online asap - especially since tonight’s episode of TVD was the Winter hiatus episode, anyway.. This TV does have FOX channel, but it turns out there was no new episode of “Glee” tonight, anyway.
And, aside from this Monday’s “Sleepy Hallow”, I’m all caught up on my TV watching. Either because Jake’s parents watch some of the TV shows that we watch, or we’ve been able to watch them in the various hotels and Inn’s that we stopped at between Canada and Minnesota and back. -smiles- As they have been all this week and last, tonight the sky and roads have remained clear and clean, so we should be home by tomorrow night. At the latest, Saturday night at the latest, if the traffic or anything else slows us down. -smiles- If we do get slowed down and get home on Saturday night instead of tomorrow, I will just call my March of Dimes Program Manager, Betty and/or Attendance Care Manager, Etta, and just let them know that we are going to be a bit late. Easypasy.
But, we should not get home too late, if we are late at all. Since at the moment, our phone GPS’s say we are only about five (5) hours away from home. So, as long as the weather holds, and the traffic flow does not slow us down too much - and we both understand that it could, that is just the nature of traffic - Jake and I should arrive home sometime tomorrow evening/night.
Regardless of whether we get home tomorrow night or Saturday night, we will get to be home for about a month before we head off to Minnesota again around Friday, January 10th until around January 21st to do the planned Holiday and Birthday thing there until the night Tuesday, January 21st. We are planning / hoping to leave that night, so we can be home on my Birthday, Saturday, January 25th, so we’re back in time and leeway time for my Neurologist appointment with Dr. Paulette Licorish on Wednesday, January 29th. As I have mentioned previously, since I have never met this doctor before, I will have more news on that after the appointment with her, of course. -smiles-
Right now we are all just hoping that whatever or how many MRI’s, and the nerve based tests, and whatever else they decided to do to me, can all be done in one (1) day on January 29th. Not having to actually be admitted to the hospital during everything, or after everything, would be fabulous too. But, at this point, with my pain being daily and constant at a full 10/10 on the pain scale, coupled with the daily growing numbness all over my body and the fact that I have only had migraines for over a year, and not just normal headaches, what is most important at this point is trying to find any answers to what the Hell is happening to me. Whether I have to be admitted to hospital around Wednesday, January 29th or not.
Of course, whether we stay home for 3 weeks or a month or whatever IS up to the border guards, but since Jake does not have so much stuff in the van from now on, like he did when he initially came Home a few months ago or so, the border themselves even said they will probably rarely question him anymore. -smiles- We also talked about planning out motel / Inn stops along the way, to and from the States and Canada from now on when we travel. Planning our overnight stop locations will safe us a good amount of money, and schedule our driving times, too.
It is so great to have the van, and a vehicle in general, so we can come and go again as much as we want to and need to. -smiles- Being able to go out more often and travel more often is fabulous and makes me happy, but so is knowing I have a nice home to come back to, wherever we are. <3
I also want to wish a great and very Happy 10th Birthday to my wonderful nephew, Trent!!!!! -grins- I love you lots, buddy. <3
