Yesterday morning I woke up and quietly sipped a cup of coffee, basking in the tranquility of the house. I suspected that once I started to move, the day would become exponentially more chaotic. I was correct, and by the time I finally sat down for dinner (at 9:30 pm) I was bordering on exhausted.
I arrived in Orlando without
any hiccups which was an unexpected surprise. As soon as I
arrived at the hotel, I was slipping on my Ossur shirt and going to work.
Between meetings and standing in the booth, I was busy every moment.
it was tiring, I was energized by seeing so many of my friends. Many
who came by to see me I have known via Facebook and through email, but
this was the first time we were able to meet. It is odd finally meeting
people whom I feel like I know already!
It was surreal
having so many of my peers recognize me as the AmputeeMommy. Walking
through the lobby when I arrived, I was approached and asked to pose
with pictures with readers of this blog. It felt odd being asked for my
autograph, but I have to admit that I was tickled by the requests!
will be another long day, but I am feeling energized. I'm looking
forward to spending the day with friends, new and established, and
learning about the new technology which is becoming available. I wait to
see how the day unfolds!
