Vacation Bound - Singapore and Thailand

So yesterday I saw my oncologist and he gave me the good news.  I am still ALL CLEAR!  I quickly thanked him for not ruining my vacation plans.  For those that know me when I was diagnosed last year I had to cancel my trip to Egypt due to having surgery and having those nasty JP drains coming out of my side!

So tomorrow morning I board a flight to Singapore - via Hong Kong!  It will be a long day of travel but I am so excited for a long vacation.  Even though it will be a sun vacation!  Don't worry - I have a suitcase full of sunscreen, sun hats, sun Protective clothing, etc!  I should be ok!

First stop is a long weekend in Singapore to see Stephy J's new place and have an American Thanksgiving pool side :)  Then it will be off to Thailand.  You can see our travel plans listed below.  (I've put it in there just to make you all a little jealous!  haha).

I'll arrive back in the states the evening of the 28th.  The pups looked so sad to be headed to boarding but I know they'll be in good hands.  Plus they post pictures daily on facebook so if I get wifi I can check in on them!  haha!

No real pictures for this post but I plan on taking lots on the trip - so stay tuned!

Thanks again for everyone's thoughts and prayers.  It's been a rough year but I'm so thankful to have a clean bill of health and all of you in my life!
