Plan A

After doing further research, I am REALLY leaning towards Plan A- heading to the Polynesian for a drink and fireworks. I was looking through online menus and discovered this:

Barefoot Pool Bar
Polynesian
Specialty Drinks $9.50 - Souvenir Cup Included
Frozen: Pina Colava, Orange Creamsicle, Mango Margarita
Rock: Captain's Mai Tai, Poolside Lemonade, Sunken Treasure

Sounds perfect to me! Plus I have never seen the fireworks from there, so in keeping with the theme of trying new things, I will be going this route unless it's made impossible by frigid temps, which I am seriously doubting (knocking on wood)

Then if I am still hungry I can stop by the food court at Pop and grab a snack!

My sister is the same way, she only eats tuna.

I love how decided by the menu...not the food menu..the drink menu!

I know! I actually had a really yummy drink at CG last year that I was interested in having again, but I really want to try all new things, and I have never been to Poly for Wishes... I'm sure that's the real reason I decided on plan A

This plan sounds absolutely fabulous! The Polynesian, fireworks, and an adult beverage?!

Trying something new... and a little scary!

Are you ready for this!!?? I've spent some time at work today day dreaming about my upcoming adventure (I have had a yucky day) so I though maybe I should go ahead and put together a touring plan for my Epcot day. And then I decided not to

See, I plan on being there for rope drop at 9 am and doing as much future world stuff as I can before 11. Then I will head into my favorite place in the World, the World Showcase!

I am planning on eating a QS lunch in someplace I have never eaten before. I haven't decided yet, but I am leaning towards Norway.

Nikki thinks she and Tom will be at Epcot around 1 pm, so from there we will do whatever it is we want. I know Nikki wants to get a few more rides in on Test Track since it's closing for refurb this spring, but I think that we are just going to play it by ear and go where the wind takes us!

This is new for me, not having a plan, but over the past couple of trips I've been planning less and less specifically and it works out well. So, since the theme is trying new things, I'm going with a free flowing plan for this day.

There are a few decisions already made however. Nikki has graciously invited me to join her and Tom at La Hacienda for dinner. She had no trouble switching the ADR to 3 instead of 2, and I am stoked! I haven't eaten there before so this goes right along with my theme! I am really looking forward to it and we are hoping for an Illuminations view, since our ADR is at 7:45 (I think).

This day is going to be AWESOME. I absolutely cannot wait, and since I know the next week is going to be pretty rough I am so glad I have something to look forward to!!

Life update

I apologize for not being around much lately! It has been incredibly hectic, and with just 2 weeks till I leave, I still can't believe I am going!

Jack had his tonsils taken out on Wednesday. I planned this specifically so that I could take Friday off, so I'd be home with him Wed, Thurs and Fri and then he could be with my parents for the weekend and today since my dad is off today. Well, in true Jack fashion, he got the stomach bug that has been going around and spent all night Sunday night throwing up. I thought for sure they would cancel the surgery, but since he was fine by Monday afternoon, they decided to proceed. Wednesday morning came and we left for the surgery center at 5:15 am My mom took the morning off so she could help me out. We got there, got checked in and they got him ready. They let him leave his pj's on which was nice. He wasn't even upset when they took him away, the nurse was chatting with him about Lightening McQueen etc, so he didn't even seem to notice he was leaving. The surgery took about 15 minutes, but they had to make us wait until he was awake till we could go back. By the time we got back there he was awake and eating ice chips and doing fine. He was a little groggy and they had numbed his tongue and mouth I guess because he was having a hard time talking. They gave him a popsicle and applesauce and he gobbled both right up. After a little while they cleared us to leave and we were home by 9 am. Jack wasn't sleepy at all despite the hydrocodone he was prescribed, so he sat up and watched cartoons in my bed and ate several more popsicles and aome more applesauce. The kid was an eating machine! He kept asking for more food, including a sandwich, but he couldn't have anything solid so he was frustrated. Thursday he was a bit more whiny, but I ahd read that the second day was the worst so I didn't think much of it. He took a nap and was a bit warm afterwards, but he runs pretty hot so I didn't worry. I went across the street to a friends for book club and my dad started calling saying Jack had a fever of 102.5! He gave him a cool bath, but the post surgical instructions specifically said not to give him Advil or more Tylenol because there we already Tylenol in the hydrocodone, and Advil would increase the risk of bleeding, and that a mild fever was normal afterwards. Well after finding out his temp went up to 103, I called the doctors office and the doctor called me back. He said Jack was probably just dehydrated, but that I could go ahead and give him some Advil. The next day he kept running a fever that would only come down with Advil, and I made him drink all day long. It also was my birthday, so some family came over and Jack was just pathetic. He didn't want to eat anything. Saturday my parents forced him to eat some and he did better, but the fever wouldn't stay away. We tried to get him off the hydorcodone because it makes him really lethargic, but at night he needed it for the pain. Yesterday he didn't run a fever all day, and my parents forced him to eat some more, but he still needed hydrocodone for the pain. This morning he slept until noon, and then had a fever when he woke up but it was lower. He went without any medicine all day but was super lethargic still and refused to eat. He is already on an antibiotic for any risk of infection after the surgery, but soemthing is clearly wrong, so my parents took him to the urgent care center. I haven't heard anything back yet, but I am hoping they figure something out becaue Jack is pretty pathetic at this point, and I really want him to feel better. I am just competely at a loss as to why he could be feeling so bad! I mean I expected the pain from the tonsils, but the rest of this is caught me off guard!

*****
Just got off the phoen with my parents and Jack has Pneumonia...

OH NO!!!! Are they going to hospitalize him? Michael had that, but not with tonsils and they put him in the hospital for like 3 or 4 days. Poor kid. Give him hugs and kisses from us.

Thanks for the good wishes!! They ended up giving him a z-pack to go along with the anitbiotics he was already on. Evidently this is bacterial pneumonia, so it's not contagious. He is actually feeling better already! He has a follow up appointment tomorrow with his doctor about the pneumonia, and an appointment with the surgeon in a couple weeks, but I spoke with the surgeon today and he thinks Jack will be better in no time! It's good he's not contagious because I NEED him to go to school Thursday and Friday!

I'm so glad he's doing better! I'm sure you wouldn't want to be leaving on your trip with this on your mind, even though it's still a couple weeks a way.

Thanks guys! Yes, I was getting nervous about leaving with him being so fragile, but he is steadily getting better. He's still not at 100% but he is returning to his old self
