In 24 hours, I'll be jumping on a plane and heading to Tampa. I am excited to finally be meeting Laurie and Lisa. Laurie & Lisa also have a son who had biliary atresia and a liver tranpslant before their first birthday. Tanner was actually the "oldest" at time of transplant - he was 10 months old.
These women have been a HUGE part of my support system through the last two years. We met online in a support group for families of children with liver disease. While there are lots of people on this site, the three of us really seemed to click. I'm excited to finally meet them in person, even if it is a bit weird to spend the weekend with people you've never met.
What I'm not excited about is the new FAA regulations...I flew last night and these regulations were not in place. This means that instead of flying with only carry-on, I will now have to check luggage. Because there is no way that I am going to Tampa without my SPF 45.
