Hello Everyone!

Off to the neurologist, MRI and VER. ...

We left Houston at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday and finally arrived in Boerne, TX (about 200 miles) at 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. We had our family (my husband, me, and 2 teenagers) as well as our two cats in the van and we were pulling our 21-ft trailer behind. It was so hot on Thursday and we were going soooo slow or not at all that we couldn't run the AC. My kids would run ...
