    Hey, if you can get a new skin, go for it!

    Two Weeks Till Surgery

    Remember, the part that's hurting now will no longer be there. Think about how great that's gonna be!

    Try some alcohol. Maybe see if your leg guy has something.

    Two Weeks Till Surgery

    Hang in there, Mary. Don't second guess yourself. You're going to be fine. In fact, you'll be better than fine. There was a woman at the conf who was actually having her amp the week following the conf. After being there, she was no longer scared. And neither was her husband. Wish you all the best.

    What Can I Bring...

    I always travel with my wheelchair. It's my rolling crutch! At the airport, you can check it with your bags or you can gate check it, which means they take it before you get on the plane and you get it back when you exit the plane. If I have a direct flight I prefer to gate check it. It comes in handy to help carry things thru the airport They will also provide one for you at the airport if you request it. Just take what you think you might need. There's no charge for checking a wheelchair. You will do fine. I wish you all the best. Do you have a date yet?
