It was amazing, and we aren't even close to done yet! That was just the flight there. I was fascinated by the ice (as you can see lol).

Thanks Tammie! It's been a bit nuts, I'm actually in full rehab mode now with PT twice a week, Chiro 1x a week and orthopedic massage. It is improving but it is painful getting there lol! Doesn't leave me a lot of free time though. Darn cold won't go away which is frustrating. I honestly thought it had turned into an infection. Nope, but I do have a deviated septum and they want to fix that. UGH! I'm really hoping to have major improvement in the neck by Christmas, do the surgery right after new years and hit Feb as a new person. I can hope, right? Thank heavens for insurance is all I know. It's crazy to me that 3 of us have been in PT this year.

It was worth budgeting for. A trip highlight for me, big time and this is only the first "leg" of the excursion, more to come.

Cynthia -

So sorry to hear it is taking so long for your neck to recover. You must be miserable and this is NOT the time of year to feel bad. Way too much to do. I keep returning to your TR ever so often so I can see that gorgeous scenery again. I just can't imagine how it would look in real life!

Nah, not miserable at all. I was but am definitely improving. Am I 100%? no, but then again, I haven't been in years! I should get at least one update up over the weekend. It is unreal in real life that's for sure!

What a great excursion!!! The scenery is absolutely breathtaking!!! Thanks for sharing your spectacular pictures.

That's cool that Jeff got to sit in the copilot's seat. I hope he spent time enjoying the scenery as well as the instrument panels.

Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your excursion!

Thanks Dee! It was breathtaking. Given the amount of pictures Jeff took as well, I'm pretty sure he did enjoy both

More coming soon!

Your photos are so beautiful!

I see you have to have your deviated septum fixed. I've had that done. If I can offer any insight, etc. let me know.

yep, that and something else but I'd have to look at the darn form to recall what it is. Something similarly rearranging/roto rootering. LOL. Not particularly looking forward to it but it seems pretty minor and common.

Thanks on the pictures! I need to edit the rest of the photos from the day to do an update and darn it anyhow, the time just seems to keep getting away from me. I'm glad someone is still looking!!!

Turbinate reduction ???? Maybe that is what else they have to do.
I had it too to help with the allergies and I will say I was skepitcal but bascially removing the deviated part improved my breathing so much that my allergies do not completely close me up anymore.
It was so bad the left side had no chance.

I hope PT continues to help and you are a "new woman" come Feb.

Gosh...dunno. The redaction part rings a bell but not the turbinate part. Need to dig up the paper.

It's been really bad this season. A cold that absolutely won't clear up and I really feel it's the sinuses. How in the world I'm supposed to go 10 days without blowing my nose (or coughing...which they didn't mention but that can't be good either, can it?) is beyond me.

Cynthia, I Hope you will soon feel better, all these health issues sound rather tedious!

I think I never commented on your last update - which I loved, just as all the pictures you have from this cruise. Alaska is definitely a spectacularly beautiful place and I think I need to add it to the list of places to visit (which is far too long already).
