Boarded the plane in Houston and met up with Terry in Washington. We are on our way to Roma!

So what do you get when you mix 4 hours sleep, Benadryl, two glasses of wine at 8000 feet altitude?  Two stewardesses, a plastic surgeon a nurse and a paramedic (that have been called to help) while you lay the floor in front of the bathrooms as you are coming to.  Yes, I am going to be
"that" person on the plane. I started getting hot, nauseous and tunnel vision and thought I would go to the bathroom and wash my face.  Down I went.  Next thing I know I have oxygen on my face and I hear a distant call for a doctor on the intercom.  How embarrassing is that!  The stewardesses continued to tell me it happens all the time because the plane does not have pure oxygen at 8000 feet and let me tell you I really liked the pure oxygen; I was feeling better almost immediately.  I had a plastic surgeon (he was drugged out himself because he was trying to sleep on the way) checking all my vitals telling me how stupid it was to take Benadryl and drink wine.  I literally dehydrated my system. add 8000 feet and the lack of oxygen……Won't do that again.  They brought me a 3 liters of water and I am still drinking it.  Wow, I feel so stupid.  I am passing out and I haven’t even made it to Rome!!  Well it has very eventful so far.  I am typing on the plane.  Only 5 hours to go.  Much better now.  I will keep massive amounts of water in me.  Can’t wait to hit Rome.  Will report back.

I am sorry this was by far the funniest- That would just be your luck, I loved all of the different stories and truly can not wait till I can visit. Thank you for sharing this..

That was entirely too funny~ Talk about laugh out loud, "now that you are ok that is"~ The only thing that is missing is a picture of all the commotion! The intro to your book will definitely be comedic.
