River Medicine: "There's a River with my name on it...."

I realized I need to post river pictures after reading the following in an article:

"There’s a river with my name on it…I don’t care if I have to stuff my I’ve-earned-this-ass into a bathing suit…the immediate relief on all things joint/muscle related is immeasurable!"

The article is Badass Gone Wild…uh…Camping on a blog called Lupus Interrupted.  This indicates to me that moms and sick people everywhere should do what she and I do at least once year, though my reprieve of this nature is 3 days and hers is ten.  

Ours is a group of moms on a float trip each July.  Our "Goddess" trip.  There really aren't words (though Kim puts it to verse each year).  So I'll put some picture up instead.  Enjoy, as these are enjoyable.  Can you even tell which women in these pictures are sick and which are not?  I didn't think so.

Travel medicine June 2012

My doctor hypothesized early in my illness that warm weather would help me if I felt good enough to travel.  My husband had his summer airline second job by then, so we tested it with a trip to Hawaii and though I spent a lot of time in the room resting, she was absolutely right.  My turtle trips started last year, and I slipped in a very brief one this year (a couple of weeks ago.  My friend Jenny, in some of my turtle pictures last year, happened to be on Oahu the same days as us.  This first photo is the kids waiting in the ocean while I talked with Greg about flight options for getting back.
