Tuesdays are Your Turn – How to Carry Meds
When we talked about travel tips, you guys had some excellent ideas, and one of them prompted today’s reader response.
Sarah mentioned sweaters with inside pockets to keep her meds right where she can access them on plane trips, and it got me thinking about how we all carry inhalers and spacers and – for some – portable nebulizers when we travel.
My daughter stands poised on the verge of carrying her own meds, but we haven’t quite reached that age yet. And also? While smart and responsible when it comes to her schoolwork, her grades, her sports and play practices, the kid cannot remember her stuff. AG leaves folders at school, jackets on the bus, and sweaters at her friends’ houses pretty much weekly.
That means right now, I’m still the pack mule. Inhalers, spacer, and peak flow meter go in a small, zippered cosmetics pouch that I toss in my amazing messenger bag (Tell you about it later – I love that thing) or, on sleepovers, AG can throw into her backpack.
How do you carry your inhalers, spacers, Epi pens, peak flow meters, and other assorted asthma/allergy paraphernalia?
Pockets? Backpack? Wagon?
I hope you don’t need a wagon.
Related, I’m packing and getting ready for my housesitter right now, since we’re leaving tomorrow for that short summer trip I’ve been planning.
Regular Friday Links are suspended this week as a result, but I’ll be posting photos and travel stories instead.
Where did we decide to go?
I’ll let you know tomorrow when we get there.
Stay tuned for Adventure! and Daring Plans!
