I just wanted to thank everyone on the board for the wonderful advice I have gotten for our upcoming trip. With the help from such informative and kind people I have been able to plan a trip that our whole family can enjoy despite one of us being 5 months post double knee replacement and me being 2 months post hip surgery. I truly was down about the trip, pessimistic about how I would do, when my doctor decided hip surgery was necessary and needed to be done ASAP to the point I wanted to cancel it... With your advice, I have mapped out a realistic touring plan with plenty of room for rests and flexibility for slower days, a nice break with a no park day ending with an Illuminations Cruise, and have rooms at our resorts that will fit our needs. I also have an appointment at a wonderful little shoe store to get fitted for shoes that should make any walking for me easier, know which questions to ask my doctor on my next follow-up concerning the trip, and know which rides are probably best for me to sit out. The best part is that you all pointed me in the right direction on who to call to ensure necessary amenities to accommodate my hip - the wonderful CM at the number posted in the sticky were able to get a handheld shower sprayer, a tub transfer bench, and to notate that I might need ECV access to our cruise. This board has also helped me accept that an ECV is not 'giving in' but rather 'getting out'... before my surgery I felt like I was copping out getting an ECV but now I am looking so forward to being able to keep up with my family and be able to last the whole day. I just want to offer my gratitude to everyone. As my family and I are winding down the end of a ridiculously stressful year (We moved cross country, DH has been going through a rigorous program involving lots of time away, and I had hip surgery a month ago), we have been looking forward to this trip as a celebration with his family. After my surgery I was concerned it would be a trip of limitations for me but now I truly feel it will just be a chance to see the park at a different pace but still enjoy the ride! THANKS!
