Need a vacation from my vacation!

I have been quite busy since I last wrote.  Jesse and I flew to Wisconsin with his parents last Wednesday.  We went up for a surprise 60th birthday party for his uncle.  As nervous as I get flying, I still love to do it...mainly because I know getting on a plane means I'm going on a vacation and I can forget about reality and responsibility for a while.  However, I usually need a vacation from my vacations.  We spent everyday shopping and visiting family members.  Shopping is very high on my list of priorities...but we did SOOO much walking!  We came home Sunday night around midnight.  I picked up my boys Monday and spent quality time with them, then worked a 12+ hour shift yesterday.  Basically today...I can hardly function.  I am exhausted and my head has been on the fritz for days now.

I decided to finally make an appointment with a new neurologist.  Supposedly a "headache specialist."  I am wary of that title though, as alot of neuros claim to be "headache specialists" and really don't know squat!  But, I'm keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed.  I go tomorrow at 10am. I also received a letter from Aetna today stating that HCA hospitals are no longer in-network.  My last 2 hospitalizations were at an HCA hospital as that is the only place my current neuro has priveledges.  Good thing I am making a change.  Although, I wasn't sure it was going to be a permanent it might have to be!
