My husband and I are planning a trip to FL from Texas and we're driving. I don't see my Doc til the 16th and we're suppose to leave the 17th when he gets off work. Can any1 maybe give me a heads up to what my Doc might say?

Well we r back from vacation and had an awesome time. We drove over 3500 miles, (my husband doing most of the driving) visited 3 states and I did great, so did my little man. 22 hours straight through to the first state. Doc told me I had to stop every 2 hours and walk a little to stretch my legs. Saw family I hadn't seen in years which was nice and saw my cousin Aimee, hi Aimee miss u already. Just glad I'm home now :)

Congrats on a successful trip! It's always great to see relatives you haven't seen in a while. It always lifts the spirits. But, as Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz, "There's no place like home!"

Kimber:

From what I have read even air travel is safe if you are stable. I recently posted an article on Driving with Heart Disease that might be useful.

Here is a direct link to the article.
