I have to Travel to New Jersey for work in a few weeks and I am NOT looking forward to it. In fact it is freaking me out a little bit. AND I DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE CECIL!!!!!!

The last time I had to travel for work, I found out that I lost Isaac and Avery. I woke-up in my hotel room in Chicago bleeding.

I am afriad that I will freakout when Traveling. I have been avioding it for almost 2 years now. I know that sounds like a long time, but for me, it still feels like yesterday. I think I will be OK as long as I am busy, but sleeping and being alone in the hotel room will make me really anxious.

I'm so sorry hun. I would take lots of family pics to keep in your room and something special to keep in your purse.

I can understand the way you feel and just because you had a loss in the past doesn't mean it goes away.

How long do you have to go?

sorry...I had to edit my post - I didn't want to keep reading what happened, it just makes me sad.

I will be gone for 4 days. Feb 21 - Feb 24. I HATE leaving Cecil and I have no idea how I am going to store up that much BM between now and then. I might also have to go to Chicago for the week of Feb 15 - Feb 19th.

I think that they have been waiting until Cecil got older to ask me to Travel, which is nice of them, but I am still not ready - I don't think I will ever be "Ready" to leave my family.

I'm sorry Sam. I can totally understand your anxiety. The good news is Cecil has a terrific daddy who will take wonderful care of him and give him plenty of extra snuggles. This is actually a pretty good age as far as his emotions because the "out of sight, out of mind" still tends to hold. Juliana was totally fine when I went to Vegas, but started crying and reaching for me the second I walked in the door.

Can you take a laptop with a camera and do video calls?

Sam, I'm sorry they are making you travel and that you will have to leave Cecil. I have a suggestion, do you have a laptop that you can take with you, if you do skype with him, that will make you feel closer to home and he can still see mommy.
About BM, well if you have a fridge them it's no problem, put them in bags instead of bottles that way it will be easier to carry them back.

HOney, I'm so sorry you have to go. I hope the time will fly by for you. I don't have any good suggestions, just wanted to let you know I'll be thinking of you.

I'm really sorry that you have to go through this. I hope you can find something you keep yourself busy in the hotel room so it's easier on you. I can totally understand how you feel.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy
