Imagine working three years straight with no vacation? Late nights, early mornings, meetings, and project deadlines begin to get to you. So, when my cousin was told by her boss, “Take a paid vacation on us as a thank you. Three weeks. G o enjoy some sun and your family,” I was the first person she called. She had flight plans and a vacation spot already picked out! Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, was our destination.
While preparing for the trip, my cousin and I went through outfit selections from clothes and shoes all the way to accessories. The anticipation made preparing so much fun. But, in the midst of the excitement, I stopped and remembered to remind my cousin to pack her medicine. She takes medicine daily, and missing just one dosage can result in an episode or a night of illness. She assured me that she had enough medicine to last her for three years. My cousin is a prime example of staying on top of her medication.
We were packed and ready. The day of the flight was smooth. And then on the flight my cousin had a medical episode. Even with all the preparation in the world, it still happened. She had done everything right, she had taken her medication, and she had brought plenty to spare. This did not stop one of her episodes from happening as the plane was landing. Neither of us thought our first stop off of the plane would be the emergency room near the airport. When she came to, she looked at me in terror with tears in her eyes. She wanted to know where she was, and wanted to know who all these new doctors were. Even though we had just gotten to South Carolina, she wanted to go home.
