Sorry I've been AWOL for a few days.  I have a back injury from something I rode and ended up in the ER two days ago.  Still not doing great.  But I'd rather be feeling bad at the Fort than at home.

Sorry to hear that hope you feel better.

Oh...sorry to hear that, Gwen!  I hope it heals soon.  Enjoy those lazy days at the Fort ❤️

Thanks, NaCole.  I spent another day in the ER having tests run.  Doctor changed my meds, and I'm slowly improving.  But I'm having a bad reaction to the muscle relaxer and probably will discontinue it.

Getting older, really stinks.  I pray that you'll have peace, strength, joy and many blessings over these last couple of days at the Fort.  Safe travels home and Merry Christmas, my friend.

Really sorry to hear you are having so many issues between you back and the meds. Hope things start to improve for you soon.

I just returned home after being at the Fort with Gwen and David for a week.  Let me tell you, Gwen was in terrible pain, but - like the trooper she is - she didn't let that stop her.  She and David were such wonderful hosts, going with me to the parks, fancy restaurants, and sharing a memorable evening at Crockett's Tavern.  I have never seen such gracious hospitality under such dire conditions - and I so appreciate the efforts they made to make my visit so special.  Gwen and David are wonderful people - the "salt of the earth" kind - and if you're at the Fort now, try to meet them.  They are very special people!  Love you, David and Gwen!!!

Today has been a little better.  Pain level is overall more tolerable.  Thanks!

Oh, Jean Ann, you give us way too much credit!  We loved having you here with us, hated to see you leave, and really miss you!  Love you too, my friend.  I just regret that my injury put such a damper on our plans.

Fiends are the greatest!  I received a wonderful surprise from Littleolwoman.aka.Kristie and her family a few days ago:

I only have to look at them to be happy.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Meanwhile I apologize to everyone that I haven't been able to keep up with this TR.  It's just been too difficult to sit in a straight chair long enough to get my photos processed.  I promise to finish it up, but it's going to be after we get home.

Gwen I’m so sorry to hear about your back. Do you know what specifically triggered it?   A few years ago we rode the safari and were in the last row and the guy I swear intentionally hit everything he could, as hard as he could to make it miserably bumpy and it messed my mom’s back up. 

I hope you are feeling better ASAP!

Thanks, Beckers.  I don't know for sure, but I think it was either the safari or Dinosaur.

Gwen, I am sorry to hear about your back. Please never worry about keeping a trip report going constantly while you are at Disney. You're on vacation. One that you so needed after all you have been through these past couple years. We appreciate the time you take to share your photos and thoughts, but never feel obligated to do so.
