** Hello**, How are you? Allow me to introduce myself, **my name is Jennifer and you can call me either Jennifer, Jenn or Jenni. I’ll answer to all 3 names, lol. What can I call you? Are you a fellow Texan like me? I live in East Texas. I moved to Tyler with my parents on April 1st. **
My friend Doug and I are both mobilities challenged. He is a Double Amputee and has had a Double Transplant of the Liver and Pancreas and he has Glaucoma pretty severely. He’s already had to have eye surgery twice since being diagnosed last year. He just got released from the hospital for having a Staph Infection, Pneumonia and Mersa all at the same time. He was in an acute care unit at the hospital for 2 weeks then they transferred him to a long term care hospital with a PIC Line for 3 more weeks. He got out last Tuesday just in time for his birthday today.
**Meanwhile, I have a Genetic Disorder called Stickler Syndrome, Legg-Calve Perthes and Degenerative Joint Disease which has caused me to have 47 surgeries on my extremities and my TMJ (Jaws) and my 4 on my Eyes. I have been Legally Blind my whole life until about 6 years ago, I ran across a doctor willing to try to do Double Lens Implant Surgery. I still have to have it zapped every so often to clear the film from my lenses but, I can see and read again with reading glasses from Walmart. I also have Migraine Headaches, Seizures, Bipolar Disorder/ Manic Depression, and PTSD and Anxiety from Child Abuse and Domestic Violence. **
** We are going on a first time Cruise for both of us April 19, 2020 on the Carnival Freedom. We are doing the same as you and driving down the day before because he is coming from Shreveport, LA. and we are meeting in Marshall to drive down together on the 18th. **
** I have started looking but can’t reserve a room or get a definite room rate for another 30 days (329 days out from check-in).m We are 359 days from our Cruise date. LOL I have a Cruise countdown clock from the Carnival HUB app on both my laptop and my cellphone. We may stay at the Hilton Inn by the Galeria in Houston because it’s like $50 to $75 dollars less expensive. I believe it is Accessible too. Another member recently went cruising and stayed overnight the night before too**
** One time when I looked Moody Gardens was less than a lot of the other places. None of them tell you if they are Accessible online. I’m pretty sure that is the right hotel that she used, If not, I’ll check back and let you know. Sorry if I did get it wrong**.
