We all stayed at the Poly, I booked Victoria & Albert chef's table for dinner for 8 of us who could go. Booked a Wishes fireworks cruise, made arrangements for my DH and SIL who had just returned from Iraq to be the Veterans of the day and bring down the colors at the magic kingdom. My husband had no, idea. He cried as he saw the family all there for him in a room I had arranged. No one slipped up, the grands were little and not told they were going to Disney until the morning of the trip. I didn't tell a sole who knows us or sees us socially or at work. That way no one could tell him. You can do it Corinna I know you can, and just imagine his face when he sees your surprise.


Tomorrow we move over to Beach Club. Have to admit I am excited, it is new and our first Epcot resort ever.

Ann
What an amazing trip you planned for your family, Ann! The memories you all will share over the years are so wonderful! I bet this is one reason your DH really wanted to do something extra special for you this trip!

Hope your move goes well today. Enjoy!!

Good morning, Js & Ks!

I think I had told you all that one of the hospitals Bob was in last year is having an Open House celebrating their 5th year in Richmond. There are Kindred Hospitals all over the country, but the one here was very new 18 months ago when he was sent there from ICU here in F'burg. They invited us to return to help in the celebration and I am canceling all my classes and private lessons tomorrow to take him. I got an email yesterday asking if I would speak at the Open House. So, amidst all my lesson planning, assignment writing, composition editing and general everyday "stuff" I am trying very hard to put together some notes so I don't forget the things we both want to say to these wonderful people.

I think Bob is as excited to get all dressed up tomorrow for the first time since January 16, 2011. Business casual is dressed up for him these days... He also wants to show off a bit for them. As hard as they all tried, they were not able to get him walking while he was there. At the end of his month at Kindred he could sit on the side of the bed and get into a wheel chair without passing out. He cannot wait to walk in that door using his walker. I can't wait to see him do it!

HOW EXCITING FOR YOU BOTH!! I know the hospital will be THRILLED to see the progress Bob has made! What an honor for you to be asked to speak!



I am packing today; will be traveling all day (and night!) tomorrow. I am so far behind on this thread now -- no chance of catching up!

I will be on the west coast until 10/6 and hope to be able to check in here once in awhile. I hope y'all are doing well. Again, sorry for being so absent (and absent-minded! )

I will stay strong. Over the weekend he asked on what deck we are on. I nearly said deck 7 (which is the deck we are actually on), but I was not sure if there are any ocean view cabins on deck 7 and there is a possibility that he would know this kind of information. He actually probably knows the ships better than I do as he tends to do a lot of exploring and also made friends with some of the crew over the years. So I gave him the info for our initial stateroom assignment, which was indeed on deck 2.



I hope that you will have a wonderful time. We will stay at an Epcot resort for the first time in November and I am really looking forward to it.



You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.


That is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing.




I am sorry that you are feeling rough. I hope that you feel better soon.

Corinna
Thanks Sweetie!!! I appreciate it! I'm SO excited for your trip - it's going to be awesome!!! Glad I could help with a little tiny part of it!!! Hugs!!!

Hi everybody! Hope all of you are well! I just want to say thank you all for this wonderful thread, without all of you and your help, I would have not known half the things I've learned, and especially about AKL. This was our first stay at AKL and by far our favorite resort! We had a wonderful trip in August and I cannot say enough great things about this wonderful resort!!
