We just had the best vacation since Maddie’s birth. I could not have dreamed up a better place for us to go. First, and foremost, I want to thank our gracious host. Please know that we feel incredibly fortunate for the opportunity to enjoy such an absolutely fabulous home.
We took tons of pictures because we have never been in such a beautiful and fun setting. The pictures honestly don’t do it justice either….There were bald eagles flying overhead, allligators and egrets in the lake bordering the property, and a beautiful golf course within view. And the inside of the house was spectacular too. Can you tell I enjoyed it?
So you can see how amazing this place was. The big slide was incredibly fun, and so fast. Thank goodness I decided to try it alone before taking Maddie on it. Maybe in a few years….
Oh yeah…..the Ball. We had a really nice time there too. Maddie had a great time with my mom and Lance. We stayed gone for almost 5 hours….. And she did fine. So I guess we will have to go an a real date, by ourselves, sometime soon, now that we know she can handle it.
We did not take pictures before the Ball, because I had forgotten that getting all dressed up takes some time, and we were running out the door once I was ready. But we got a few once we got home.
We just had the most fun and relaxing time. I left there reenergized and ready for the weeks ahead. It didn’t hurt that Maddie’s seizures have reduced in duration and intensity quite a bit while we were there. It appears that the Zonegran may actually be doing something. We upped the dose again today and are hoping to see even more improvement. So we wait…..
Brandon’s leave time before deployment begins this weekend so we will be spending some time at Kiawah and in Charlotte. I’ll end this post with a few more pictures of our amazing weekend.
