Traveling to Oregon
We headed off to Oregon on Thursday. First off while we are still at home waiting to go to the airport, Jesse doesnt feel so well, and throws up her breakfast. Shortly after that, we head to the airport, all seems pretty good. As we are waiting to board, Jesse starts feeling sick again, and gets a panic attack boarding the plane. Upon entering the door of the plane, I motion to Clent to get a sick bag just incase. Well, good thing- Jesse throws up her entire walk down the isle of the plane to the back where our seats are. You could see the faces of the other passengers as she walks by (please dont let her sit by me) One guy actually looked like he was going to get sick, watching her get sick. So finally in our seats, she sips a little water to try and hydrate. During out 2 1/2 hour flight, she begins to feel a little better. Finally the plane lands, we walk off, and Dakota gets her to the bathroom, where she again throws up. At this point, we are worried about dehydration, and her heart being at a high altitude and her blood thinning. We decide to call airport EMT's to take a look at her. They arrive, take her blood pressure and oxygen level, and all seems good. Off we go to Astoria. We had a great time clam digging, and just hanging out. Time for more drama, Dakota wakes up, and heard her neck crack at 4:00 am. So, not knowing if she has a bone out of whack, off to emergency clinic, I am sure Jesse was pleased as punch it was not her we where taking. Dakota pulled the muscles in her neck, and was promised a few days of little neck movement.
Today was a good day, Jesse ate and drank without getting sick, and Dakota's neck is feeling better. I am sure my mom feels like she is now living in an urgent care clinic. We still have plans to get back down to the beach, climb the Astoria Column and do some more sight seeing.
Hope everyone had a great weekend,
