Getting ready for Austin trip

A pretty laid back weekend here which is always nice. Especially since the next few weeks will be a whirlwind. We leave the end of this week for Austin for several appointments with Braden. Some are with our already established doctors some are with new ones. The neuro will look at the scar tissue issue and make a final determination on that. We will be visiting several other docs and some of them I am really looking forward to the input. Hubby won't be traveling with us it just couldn't work luckily I have a good support system down there with my aunt and uncle being close. Britt will be attending San Antonio Spurs basketball camp during the week which will be great for her as she will not have to endure all the sitting and waiting of doctor appointments.

Of course getting ready for the trip is always a little stressful. We do plan to have some fun when we are there. We will get there Friday and have testing for the neuro, then we get passes for Sea World from the hospital which is always such a treat for the kids. We will use our passes over the weekend and be ready for doctors appointments, etc to start on Monday. If all goes well we should be heading home in about a week after arriving.

The kids have lots of change to turn in at the bank today they have been saving that will give them some spending money and take away the asking Mom for things and save my budget that I will have us on. I am a little concerned on how much we will have to eat out with Braden's dietary restrictions but I am sure we will handle it, and he is handling the diet changes as he does with everything - a wonderful attitude and lots of laughter...I have said it before and I am sure I will say it again I am so blessed by his easy going attitude during anything he goes through.

Better start this busy week I have already warned the kids it is errand running day. Britt immediately started a list and Brae immediately grabbed his throat and said it was going to kill him....oh those two so night and day.

Why can't Matt go, couldn't he take his laptop and work remote from the hotel or is that too much work to take along.

I hope all goes well and have a safe trip
