Healing thoughts for your Mom

Bootsie Sweettarts says:

OMG… absolutely terrifying. We do a lot of cruises and land travel having been to the same places as you. I often think how frightening it would be to get hurt or ill while away. Not speaking the language and not knowing your surroundings is an awful experience. We’ll be heading to the Med on another cruise in 6 weeks and at almost 71 years I am always thinking of that. One good thing about a cruise is that the ship’s crew is always amazing making something like this a bit less scary. I’m sure you all wanted to just get home with Mom. I got pick pocketed in Barcelona and even that was so stressful let alone getting injured. Mom was fortunate to have her gaggle around. Wow.

Prayers for your Mom

Amanda Vang says:

OMG, was not expecting that. Sending your mom good vibes and thank you for sharing your experience with us.

MIAMI 4K says:

Hey Olivia quick question which patches do you recommend for motion sickness? I know about Airborne but it makes people drowsy a bit.

Mandy Viper says:

Hi Olivia’s mom sending immense prayers and thoughts of healing your way. I’m so sorry that happened to you and thankful that you made it home. I’ll have my grandma say a rosary for your healing ❤️

Colleen Barry says:

Olivia, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. She is in my prayers. I hope she has a smooth recovery. ❤️

Beverly B says:

To Olivia’s Mom: Praying for fast healing, calm days ahead for you, and also prayers for your family so there is less anxiety for everyone. You are in the medical care will be at your beck and call!

Olivia the first part of your VLOG 2 thumbs up. The mosaics in Portugal were amazing. Your cabin room was Outstanding. What you filmed was wonderful. Looking forward to the second part. Your Mom’s health is your main concern now – so take a deep breath, go to yoga and try to relax. You all went through something traumatic – give yourself time to adjust. Don’t worry WE AREN’T GOING ANYWHERE – we can wait however long it takes for your next VLOG!! Be safe, carry on, and everyone heal.

Bridgett Wonder says:

Thank you so much for allowing us to vicariously live your vacation through media. I am so sorry about what happened to your mom. I can understand not only your worry about her, but the language barrier and the unfamiliarity with a foreign medical system. I am sure you were all terrified. I am so sorry that occurred the middle of this fabulous trip. I look forward to part 2 and hope the rest of the trip went well.

Elizabeth Hayes says:

Prayers for your Mom!!! Wow! So glad it wasn’t worse!!

Squeee! A Crystal cruise! I’ve wanted to cruise on that line, but my son is a tad too young. He wants to do kid stuff like ziplining and rockclimbing on the ship.

Sounds like an amazing trip! So sorry about your mom. That’s so traumatic. I hope she has a speedy recovery!

I’ve been to Gibraltar and a monkey rode on the window of our driver’s van for awhile. I must say at times they made me a bit nervous!! The huge plaza area was fun with the small restaurants and shops.
