Holy crap! I did not think that's where this update was going.

First of all - 3 margaritas at the Ditch is like 6 alcoholic drinks. O M G!

Secondly - I take back my offer to chug margaritas with Dale. He could definitely drink me under the table.

Lastly, I am very concerned that your doctor said he had a small heart attack. Has he had a stress test and cardiac cath? Has he seen a cardiologist? If not, he really should. That is totally scary. You know as I was reading I was thinking this sounded like a heart attack, but you told the story so calmly so I was like - where is this going? And I am shocked that no one stopped to offer help. The whole thing is so scary.

On a brighter note - those two pictures of the YC at night are totally gorgeous. The lights look perfect.

Thank you. I had a good cry after posting. It was a terrifying experience but thankfully he is fine.

Yes he will be limiting himself to 1 on any future trips!

Yes he saw a specialist and had the full battery of tests. (between all the tests he and Caitlin have had lately I can't keep track of who had what) The tech who did the stress test told him he scored like a healthy 27 yr old would I tried to tell the story just as we experienced it but when I was done I had a good cry. It was terrifying and after the tests came back it was scary to think what could have happened.

On a brighter note - those two pictures of the YC at night are totally gorgeous. The lights look perfect.
Thank you

Oh my goodness - definitely not good drama!

So glad that Dale is okay - what a very scary experience to go through! I'm sure it was not an easy update to write, after finding out what was really going on. Now that he's with a cardiologist you can keep an eye on things and make sure he has lots of WDW trips in his future.

Still loving the pics of YC - one of those places I would really love to stay someday!

Hoping the next update is a bit happier...

So, I have a couple of updates to comment on, so I'll start with the happier one...

I haven't been to HBD- the restuarant looks really gorgeous. Food looks good too.

Thanks for sharing your pictures of the Backlot Express. I only stopped in their long enough to give meal vouchers to the 14 teens and 5 chaperones on our class trip, while I slipped away to get ToT FP and have a solo lunch at Starring Rolls.

I didn't know it was filled with props. That's kind of cool- thanks for sharing that tidbit.

And about being able to see the Indiana Jones show from the fence.

All of your pictures of the Yacht Club are stunning! Love them!

Oh, wow, Dawn. What an incredibly scary experience for you two. I can't imagine the panic you were facing. I'm so glad that Dale is ok, and now you can keep close watch on his health.

I'm impressed that you were able to keep a steady hand and snap some gorgeous pictures on your gentle walk around the resort. The picture of the wedding gazebo at night is so pretty!

I haven't been to The Ditch, but the drinks sound very tempting. I'll stick with one, though.

Hope that your trip gets better from here and that this was your biggest dose of drama. I'll take more of the hairbrush variety, please.

Thank you! I didn't anticipate how hard it would be to write and I felt very drained afterward.

It is so beautiful there! I hope you get to stay there someday!

Hoping the next update is a bit happier...
It will be

It is very pretty and we really like the salad. It is a nice place for adults but if we still had kids I would stick with SciFi or 50's

It is a fun place to explore but from what I've heard about the food you made the right choice with Starring Rolls

And about being able to see the Indiana Jones show from the fence.

Thank you. I really dont even remember taking most of the pictures.

Good idea!

I wish I could say that was the end of the drama but it wasn't. There wasn't anymore of the life threatening variety but still much more serious than the hairbrush. I came home needing a vacation!
