Just got home from three nights of camping and I'm none the worse for wear! I communicated my pain and my needs to our extended family right up front and I have to say that they were awesome. More than once I had a brother or sister in law come and take my task and ask me to go have a seat. My husband set up an amazing bed for me with a big camping cot and a thermarest mattress on top. It was as tall as my bed at home, so no trying to get up off of the ground. Finally, my sweetheart of a daughter (10 yrs old) was too cold at night, so she climbed in with me and kept me warm! No aches from getting too cold at night!

What a blessing and a much needed boost to do something so regular and not be wishing I wasn't there the entire time! I'm reclaiming my life one little piece at a time.

Woo Hoo! I am so glad it went well! I love it when we can get out in our motorhome? Although it is a lot of work and there is pain associated with it, I love the peace and quiet! I don't have a tent and I do have a furnace so aT least I can turn it on if it gets cold! 😊
