We have carried that same mentality with most of Jack's medical visits and medical travel. The thought is that heck, might as well have some fun while doing something that is decidedly, not fun. When we spent two weeks in Seattle for Jack's tube weaning clinic last summer, I felt like we were on vacation. Yes, we were in four therapy visits a day but... the evenings were free! We filled them in with sight-seeing, shopping, and restaurant going.
It's an attitude that we make the most of it. Whatever situation we may be in, we try and fill our free time with fun, relaxing, family togetherness.
This weekend, while we were in another town waiting for an important appointment, we made sure to do one of our most favorite summer things: the farmer's market.

We know that for Jack, many of his "vacations" and travel will be spent around medical visits. We will continue to make the most of it!
