Free Day

Today we had the whole day to do fun things around town to try and take our minds off of what is to come. The plan was to go to the beach/splashground in the morning and bowling in the afternoon. We slept in (we needed it!) and didn't get going until close to lunch time! He was dying to bowl so we went to Bel-Mark lanes first. He bowled three games and had a grilled cheese sandwich and milk. Then we went back to the hotel to grab our suits and head to Independence Lake. We got there, but on the way he said he had a terrible headache and was almost crying. He said it felt like a migraine. Sure enough, he threw up. We turned around and went back to the hotel and he threw up again before taking a very long nap. At dinner time, he woke up and decided to rally! We went to the Cottage Inn for dinner where Greg had what he said was the best pizza he's ever eaten. We walked next door for gelato. Connie loved the lemon blueberry flavor. We decided it was just like in the book Olivia Goes to Venice. A few blocks away was Pinball Pete's. Talk about a fun arcade! Connie got his fill of skee ball, air hockey and pinball.
Tomorrow is going to be a long, trying day for Conway. Patience is not his best attribute and there will be a lot of sitting around and waiting for various tests and appointments. Please pray that he is cheerful and loving to all the new people he meets.
