I loved that column, @colleensteele. I also have been to the Mt.Shasta area and it was beautiful to see. The title of this column, I absolutely loved. It was such a catchy title.
When my hubby and I would travel to Boston for my PH trips. We would stay at one of the 2 places. One was a hotel outside of Boston, but we could take the shuttle and bus into the city. We always ate lobster and clam chowder at one place that was so good but not expensive. This is also where I started drinking coffee, thanks to Dunkin Donuts, hehe.
I enjoyed going there, it was so different than Texas, and we always took in one fun adventure while there. It was for medical reasons, but we made it our vacation. When dealing with appointments, you need to balance it with a little fun, too. I can only imagine how busy the pre and post-transplant trips were.
I will repeat it, Cullen is fortunate to have an amazing mom to advocate for him. That and having a family that loves and cares so much for him, that you all pushed through some of the longest 4 months of your lives, I am sure.
