    This is really important... I will have to cancel my DW if we can't figure this out.

    What did you end up doing? My grandma cant make our DW.

Kyle's grandmother is 75 and she is also coming my other grandmother has become ill so she unable to make it now but unless there is a big health concern I do not see why the trip cant be made. Good Luck

      My grandma says she cant travel.... she is 85. She lives alone, but has been in and out of the hospital on and off for heart issues... We booked our trip but I am getting anxiety if she doesnt decide to come.

She is doign the first leg along and I am flying her 2nd flight in combo with 4 people to assist her. I had my mom do the paperwork for her passport. I was a little nervous about it, but she is OK with it and everyone knows to keep an eye on her. Notify the airlines for assistance so she can have someone take her through secruity and to the gate, they will also pick her up on the other side and deliver her to the car.

        My grandma is now so excited that she went to get hearing aids after us begging for almost 10 years as she wants to be able to enjoy everyone while there and hear the ceremony. This worked out great for my family as we go that extra bonus. Good Luck
