Holiday Time!

Well the big day has arrived and in a few hours we’ll be all packed up and making our way out to the coast to see my family. It’s always a great trip out to Vancouver and I’m starting to get excited to see my family. Now if you ask me if I’m excited about the long drive ahead the answer is no! Although we are breaking it up with a few stops along the way so the drive won’t seem as long. It’s been a really busy day trying to get ourselves packed up and ready to go. Everyone is exhausted and the trip hasn’t even started yet!

Like I said in my last post I’m going to try and relax on this holiday so I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting before I get back on Aug 13th. I might try and sneak in the odd update but I’m going to play it by ear and not feel guilty if I don’t get to posting. I hope to get some great photos along the way and seeing as this is a driving trip I’m sure there will be many photo ops along the way especially as we drive through the mountains in and around Banff.

My pain hasn’t been great but it’s under control, and I just hope that it doesn’t stop me from doing all the fun things I want to do with my family. What I am worried about is the long drive ahead and all the sitting in the car. Trying to get comfortable can sometimes be a challenge on a drive like that so I hope that by breaking it up that I’ll be more comfortable.

Well it’s starting to get late and I still have a few other things that have to get done before I can head off to bed. So for now I’ll say goodnight and I’ll talk to everyone soon!

About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I’m married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family!

In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn’t fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year and a half not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it!

As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.

    Enjoy your trip! Heading to the coast sounds dreamy. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

    I’m headed on a road trip myself, to the mountains, and cooler weather. I’ve had all the heat I can take in Texas. πŸ™‚

    I truly hope you have a wonderful holiday, Ross!! I can’t wait to see the wonderful photos you come home with. I have heard that Vancouver is beautiful… and Banff divine!!
    I hope the drive isn’t too uncomfortable… I understand that concern all too well.
    I can only imagine what it would be like to disappear with the family for a couple of weeks & to visit your family. We just never get the opportunity to do so. I hope one day we will be a little more financially stable to enjoy a break away from home.
