At Studio Seven in Wantagh getting haircut, color and highlights. Kaylee is also getting haircut. She's still got the chest pain but is pushing through it. We always feel good after getting our hair done. So many events coming up this weekend we are having my nephew Ryan's 1st Holy Communion, Sunday is Mother's Day so Alan is taking me out to a nice dinner and then we will go over to my parents house for dessert to celebrate Mother's Day and our Mom's birthday. Next week David Graduates from College and the following week my God-daughter Ashely Graduates College too. I am so proud of both of them. Then Alan and I are off to Cancun for 8 days! We will be renewing our wedding vows on the beach...working on writing my vows. Alan and I are so excited to get away. So good to have so many things to celebrate and enjoy the closeness of family.

Had to rush to school and pick up Kaylee and take her over to cardiologist since she started having chest pain, pressure in her chest and shortness of breath. Doctor ran EKG and did an echocardiogram. Doctor diagnosed her with costochondritis which is virus that settles in wall of chest from having open heart surgery. Having costochondritis can mimic the signs of having a heart attack. She is very uncomfortable. It could take a few days or weeks to clear up so no gym for at least 2 weeks. Also her aorta is building up even more scar tissue than last time so it's something we will have to keep an eye on. It may need to eventually be repaired.

Poor Brittany fell down a few stairs and sprained her ankle so bad orthopedic wants her in cam walker for 3-4 weeks especially because she has broken this ankle once before. She says the boot is heavy to walk in but better than the cast they could have put on her leg since she can take it off to shower or just lay in bed and let her leg breathe a bit. But she does have to wear it all day. She has to go back to orthopedic in a month and all should be good by then.

Spent Friday booking and paying for the rest of our 9 day family trip to Daytona Beach for a couple of days and 7 days in Orlando Florida in August. Booked our airfare on JetBlue. We will spend a couple of days at the beach in Daytona and visiting Alan's cousin Blanche in Palm Coast. Then it will be off to Orlando where we will be staying at our 3 bedroom timeshare at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club at Seaworld. I purchased tickets to do 2 Disney Parks, 2 Universal Parks with unlimited ride fast pass, and Discovery Cove which is my family's favorite day and booked a VIP Cabana, then Sea World and a Medieval Times Dinner. It's going to be one exhausting but fun 9 days. So looking forward to this family trip.
