We leave this evening for Europe--a week in Berlin, one night in Dresden, and five days in Prague before returning to Berlin for one more night before flying back to Massachusetts. I hope to post occasionally during the trip but will not try to post every day while we are traveling.
We already had this trip planned before John was diagnosed, but it has become more important as an opportunity to do things as a family while we still can. We are renting apartments in Berlin and Prague, which I hope will make the trip less stressful. John has been doing very well the last few days, just occasionally strugging to try to do something like make a rental car reservation for our return (he wanted to check out something beyond what I had found but found only the same price).
We have already been away from home for a few days but in a familiar vacation house. I don't know whether in a new place he will be more disoriented or whether the excitement will inspire him.
