I am home!

I cannot wait to post about my amazing experience at the conference -but unfortunately it will have to wait another day -
I just wanted to write a quick note to say I caught that 'bug' or the food thing going around the conference.
I became violently ill Monday just about the time the meal was being served at the closing dinner.
Thank heavens another Leader from Western PA - Karen and her husband were on the same shuttle to the airport - same flight - and amazingly we were assigned to the same row on the plane. They were wonderful - got me on the plane and off and to the curb to meet Jim.

Marilyn was so good to me in the morning when I woke up - tried to help pack me and gave Claire breakfast -and I could not have made it to the shuttle without her and Nancy - "I needed help"!

More when I am better - still unable to eat -
