Excellent! Thank you!

So I ask for prayer from you folks. Mostly how to deal with the stress. I know if I turn it all over to Him, He will take care of it. I need to remind myself of that constantly.

I appreciate you all and consider you family

We know all about the stress and blood pressure issues. DH has a very stressful job and quite a few years back I had him in the ER and they said he was at stroke level. Luckily that has not happened, but even with medication sometimes he is still a high low as I say. But he has done well on the medication and we deal with it.

I had ordered water the Monday before the Friday arrival and Bell Services had it delivered to my room, ready when the room was ready. The service was great.

We did have a mixup with our room charges. I got some of my cousin's room charges. We managed to untangle that mess on the day of departure. But all in all, it was a fantastic time.

We are staying 9 nights in a VWL studio this December, and are thinking about bringing our DGD with us. So it would be Me, DW, DS and DGD. Do you think we can get a single inflatable mattress and use that in the studio?
DD, Kati, did the single inflatable mattress several years back and did very well with it. She still keeps it just in case she ever needs it again.

It's posts like this one that strike fear in me, fear of going back to work and the stress level that goes with it. Being unemployed has been such a blessing for me and I know that sounds crazy. Prayers for you, Jimmy, so that you can handle the stress without getting ill in the process.

Jimmytammy....
Stress can be helpful in small amounts, but when it gets to be too much that it affects health I know it can be scary. I wish you some calming moments scattered throughout our often hectic lives. Hang in there. Prayers going out to ya !

Hey all!

Thanks for the prayers and concerns, I literally felt things being lifted off me yesterday, and firmly believe you folks had a big part in that in prayer on my behalf. You folks are the best!! I dont deserve you, but I am so blessed to have you in my life.

More news medically...they put me on cholesterol meds yesterday. I know this is all in the norm, and I should have known it was coming...high blood on my moms side, high cholesterol on my dads. It boils down to one less PB&J milkshake from 50s PTC per trip

We used to use a twin size blowup with the automatic pump that would also reverse the air to breakdown quickly. Be sure to get a mattress with a cloth topping/velvet on it. It helps to keep the crinkle sound of the mattress down, therefore allows for quieter sleep time for others in the room.

We would place the mattress between the tv cab and the pullout and it fit just right! VWL will bring extra sheets/blankets.

Best wishes to the stressed out groupies! I join all who wish for relief! I'm dealing with the passing of an Uncle, who taught me to ride a 2 wheeler way back in the 1950s. DH is a huge help to me and we'll be in Cape May next week doing what we can.

Happy belated birthday, but my DSis celebrates for the month, you can too, Maria!
