A New Experience

On Tuesday, I flew to Hawaii.  I had a new experience. I decided to take advantage of my "handicapped" post-op status and ask for wheelchair service.  It wasn't because I didn't think I could walk between the terminals, but I was concerned about the timing.  Since I can't walk at my usual pace, I didn't want to take the chance of missing a plane, especially since my last changeover was to a completely different airline and I had to go through security again.

It's a good thing I took advantage of the complimentary service.  

But I have to say, it was difficult to accept the attention, knowing full well that I could have done the walking myself and should have done some of the walking myself.  So each time I was delivered to a terminal, I still walked around, sometimes aimlessly, sometimes looking for a bathroom or some food.  

The trip back to NY will be different.  No chariot will await me then.

Sometimes you must take advantage of certain services. Glad you won't need it on the way back! Have a wonderful trip and send summer here early!
