Connie and I arrived in Detroit after a very fast flight and Greg picked us up and we drove to Ann Arbor. We were able to check in early to our hotel room and lay down for a little rest (although no one slept!). We drove to a nearby park to spend a little time on the playground and look at the ducks and geese in the Huron River. Conway wanted sherbet so we went to Baskin Robbins where he ordered the wreckless sherbet. After finishing that cone he asked to try the rainbow sherbet. Ice cream for dinner seemed prudent for a very brave boy on the eve of his surgery. Now he's snacking on popcorn and raspberries! We'll check out some Olympic coverage tonight and try to get some sleep before we have to report to the hospital tomorrow morning at 6:15 EST. Please say an extra prayer for him, that he'll remain calm beforehand and that all involved in his care will use their talents and gifts to do their very best for him.
