I haven’t done any airplane travel in a year and a half. I only ever fly to go visit extended family in the Midwest, and we don’t get the chance to do that super often. Well, next month I am finally going with my mom and siblings to go visit all our relatives again.

Plan What to Pack!
I used to try to pack as little as possible, but that was when I was a little kid with no medical supplies and even less concern for my physical appearance than I have now.
Now I need to make sure I pack all my medications, hydration mix, tube feed supplies, tape for my joints, comfy clothes, compression socks, hot/cold packs, and whatever mobility aids I deem necessary.
Haven’t decided if I want to bring my own wheelchair or not. Wanda is a pretty sweet ride, but I would worry about it getting damaged by the airline. However, I would not be able to enjoy shopping days with my aunts very much without a wheelchair.
I have almost a month to figure it all out, so it should be fine. I know the trip will be tiring, but it will be worth it to see family. I haven’t seen my grandparents in a long time, and my cousin has a six month old baby who I have not gotten to meet yet.
