Wheels in Motion
After our day of disappointment, travel and recuperation we are ready to get the ball rolling on plans to get back to Ann Arbor next month. Greg's contact at our hotel said that unfortunately, the UAW is hosting their national convention in A2 that week and getting a room anywhere in town will be next to impossible. They can not offer us the same amount of nights we had remaining, but they did have a late cancellation for four nights, so we know we've got a place to stay through the night of August 10th. We will hope that by that time he is well enough to be floor status, at which time we can both be with him overnight. We may try to get a room at the Med Inn for the 11th through discharge, but I honestly don't know if I can handle stepping foot in there. It just holds so many traumatic memories. We had purchased tickets for Connie and I to fly home in time for heart camp next week, but since things have changed, and since he's growing rather weary of another long car trip, we decided to see if we could change our flights to August 7th and have Greg meet us at the airport in Detroit and drive us to A2. I think it will help his spirits some and keep him out of rest stop bathrooms and hopefully well enough to go through with the surgery next time. Thankfully, it only cost $26 total to make the switch. We got lucky there. On the health front, he hasn't vomited anymore since yesterday evening, but he did have two accidents overnight. He's such a big boy, he even got himself changed and cleaned up. Thank you for your continued prayers. We know that the peace we feel is a direct result of so many lifting us up.
