I'm home and just finishing up the endless pile of laundry (would have been done, but a pen got stuck in one of the loads - yikes - need to rewash it). I wanted to write one more entry to finish off our fabulous trip. We flew out of Victoria, B.C. on a smaller plane, which was fun for the girls. Despite the fact it was only a 22 minute flight, Annelies insisted on taking out her iPad for the short duration!
However, my anxiety wasn't in helping the woman in need, it was trying to answer the flight attendants that kept asking me, "Do we have to divert the plane?", "The pilot needs an answer, should we divert and land the plane?" What stress! What was I to do?
Once the woman stopped seizing and I felt she was stable, I went and talked with the pilot (through a phone of course). We both agreed a diversion wasn't necessary, but I found myself saying to myself, "Who am I to make that decision? I don't know jack!"
After that I was queen of the plane. Annelies and I moved up to first class (because during the chaos Paradis and Annelies forgot to switch), were given dinner, and a voucher for a future flight. After the flight passengers were thanking me for helping the lady and not having to divert the plane. I'm thinking this hero thing isn't a bad deal after all ...
Thanks for following us on our journey out West. We are planning to travel again Spring Break of 2012 and Summer of 2012. As of now, we aren't quite sure where we will go; I will be working on that within the next couple months.
Happy travels everyone ...
I'm glad you are home, but I will miss the daily updates on your fun adventures! I love Haddy, your heroism and all the great stories! Thanks for sharing with us.ReplyDelete
