I went north – my bag went south!

Here’s to Chicago!

Waitied about an hour to take off, but glad the snow is on the ground and not falling through the air.

As I sat on the plane, I was unaware that only one of my suitcases was in the cargo hold below me.

When I finally got to California, I stood at the baggage carousel forever waiting for my second suitcase. I was getting worried because of course that was the one that had all my diabetes supplies in it.

Finally, I spotted my bag – and guess what – it had my flight number crossed out and another one written in marker.

While I went from Florida to Chicago to California, my diabetes suitcase went from Florida to Houston to California.

Reunited and it feels so good!

  1. Eeek! That’s why I never check diabetes supplies. In my life, I’ve had my luggage completely lost twice, lost for a day once, lost for over a week once, and damaged twice.

  2. Thankfully, I would not have been totally stranded.
    What was packed was just infusion sets and reserviors. I had my insulin and syringes.

    And hey, I could have stopped by George’s house if I really needed to, right?! 🙂

  3. Sara,
    I’m so glad you and all your luggage made it there safely – even if one suitcase took a different route. Too bad you couldn’t have taken that route since it’s probably a little warmer in Houston than it is in Chicago! LOL!

    Merry Christmas!
