Mel and Jamie -
I hope you read through the thread "Getting Ready for Stanford". It is a summary of Jeff's, Marie's, Holly's and my experience. I think you will find it helpful.
I was not affected by the heat like Jeff or Holly. I have more problems in the winter when it is cold ---my left leg would become stiff as a log. Obviously, I have not been able to see if that has changed since we are in the hotter months. Fatigue was also not a problem for me. What has changed is that I am perspiring --this is something new. (I can' t say this was something that I desperately wanted to have changed either
July 6th is so close! You will be glad to get away from the Texas heat.
Mel is a trouper - enjoy the trip and we will look forward to hearing from you.
