Well, we had met Shelly and her Mom in Atlanta and they sat right
behind us on the plane to McAllen. We came into McAllen about
12:45pm. Unfortunately, I started feeling really sick on the plane
and had to eat some crackers. The landing was awful, and really made
me feel more sick. Christine and her husband Rick met us at the
airport, along with Marcos. Everyone was so great. I felt so sick
from the plane, and had to make Marcos stop at a bathroom before we
got to Mexico, just to give me a few minutes to feel better. When we
got to the hospital, we were all checked in, but I knew I couldn't
have my surgery that day as I had eaten on the plane, so I was told
I could eat more and would have my surgery on Saturday. Christine
and Shelly were prepped and were off to have their surgeries. My
friend and I were able to sit outside for awhile and enjoy the nice
weather (its in the 30's & 40's here in Iowa) The food they brought
us for dinner was great.
We had to wait till about 10 for Marcos. He brought us and Tia and her hubby back to the US, and then we had him take us to the Hotel chain that my friend works for and then he was off to drop Tia and her hubby at a different one. We took the hotel shuttle to the mall later that night and was able to get a few souvenirs. Monday morning bright and early we had to get to the airport, and met Shelly and her mom, and Tia and her hubby as we were all on the same flight back to Atlanta. Honestly, I think I felt better than anyone else, but I think I have a very high pain tolerance. When we got to Atlanta I guess you would have laughed at all of us, because when we came in off the plane, we all saw we had to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the terminal. We then all went to different terminals for our next plane. After Atlanta we went to Cincinnati, and then on to Des Moines. All the walking was a little hard, so I came home and crashed on my bed.
I still feel really good, but wasn't up to sitting and writing a lot
until now. My hubby really missed me, but the kids went off to play
games when I got home, which didn't make me feel missed, lol.
