Well, I'm off to New York state tonight; I need to go help my parents out . To tell the truth, they probably don't really need my help all that much, but when there's an emergency in the family, I just feel better actually seeing people and reassuring myself that they're going to be o.k.. My mom just got out of the hospital, and I want to go and help my dad take care of her and the house and whatnot for a couple of weeks.
Anyway, it's going to be challenging; I leave just after midnight tonight, fly to North Carolina, change planes, then fly to New Jersey. I get to NJ at around 11:30 in the morning east coast time. In other words, it's a red-eye, and I'm going to be off my meds most of the time. I also have to pick up my rental car and drive about an hour to my parents' house. Thank goodness the snow has melted, and it will be daylight. The last time I did this, I ended up crossing the George Washington Bridge accidentally and found myself in New York city at 1:00 in the morning.
I have my meds packed in my carry-on, and my cane folded up in my suitcase. I hope this is going to go o.k.; it all depends on how good a travel companion Old Man Parkinson is. Wish me luck!
