Airport Journal #1

Airport Journey part 1

So I woke up at 5:30 from my gtube machine beeping even though I set my alarm for 6am so I could have around 4 hours before we had to leave for the airport. We had some mix up with the flight information since we were told our flight was delayed til tonight but we got the wrong information. We changed flights and now it’s 6:18pm and my flight to Paris takes off at 10:20, since it’s a international flight we board around a hour, hour and a half early. We were told to get here as soon as possible because the flight time could change earlier.

I’m waiting near my gate typing for my blog, I’m going to draw soon but I’m not sure what yet. Since for now my flights at 10 they won’t be serving dinner on the plane so I’ll probably go get dinner in a little bit. My lungs decided to hate me and I’ve been having a coughing fit since I got to security. Which makes me feel like crap and my lungs feel weird like there’s stuff in there, which there is. Anyways I’m trying to think of more things to write here since there’s not much going on. I guess I’ll talk a little bit of how much a pain it is traveling with a chronic illness.

Between me and my sister we have 3 suitcases just for medical stuff for the two weeks we’re going to be in Paris. It doesn’t even have all of our things. We only packed one nebulizer and one vest. One bag had all my feeding tube formula. Another one had all the miscellaneous things like bags with my inhalers, arubika, and spacer. In another bad I had some enzymes and feeding tube bags. I also have my pill container, two gtube extension tubes and syringes, a extra feeding tube Incase mine comes out, two feeding tube pumps Incase one breaks, and a nebulizer pump. In another suitcase I have a vest and on top of it is a bag with the actual vest and other little things.

When I went through security I had to go through the big spaceship looking thing where you have to stand in it for a second with your hands up. Since I’m only 14 I was surprised but it’s a international flight so I guess it makes since.


(It’s staring into my soul)

Right now my family is sitting in longhorns waiting for our food. Before we moved we always went to longhorns but when we moved there wasn’t one near us. Now when we go on vacation and there’s one near us we go there. After we eat I want to get Starbucks and get a bag of chips and candy for the plane.


(This is my vein, the big building is a hotel attached to the airport)

I’m currently waiting for my plane to start boarding, which is in about a hour. I just got back from eating and as I said before I got some candy to munch on the plane. We’re at the gate across from our actual gate because the sun is really bright and where we are there’s windows everywhere. This is going to be my last update since I need to upload this tonight. We’re going to get there around 11am but it will be 6:30 in the morning here and I won’t have internet access for a few hours after I land. Anyways that’s all for now, bye!
