Getting ready to leave town is always crazy but when you don't know how long you'll be gone it's even more NUTS! Tuesday morning, My cousin Melanie and I will be heading out for Rochester Minnesota for my appointment at the Mayo Clinic. I haven't been there for a few years and need to check out my "condition" to see if it has progressed and if I'm on enough medication etc....I think I'll only be there through Friday, unless they hold me over the weekend for more tests on Monday.
THEN...we'll drive from MN to Bethesda, MD to meet Savannah for her NIH appointment. She will flying out from XNA on Sunday the 25th. Hopefully we will all arrive around the same time....SAFE and HEALTHY! Savannah will have her tests on Monday 26th and clinic on Tuesday. That's when they will tell us if she needs her spleen removed or not. If not, we will be on our way back home on Wednesday. If she does require surgery, we will be there for at least 5 to 7 more days. Please pray that there will be no trace of cancer in her body.
One good thing about all of this is that Melanie and I are going to get a lot of quality time together....( melanie, I apologize ahead of time ) We haven't been on a long road trip since the last time she and Carla took me to Mayo. I'm thinking that was in 2001 or 02. Anyway, as sick as I was, I still remember how much fun we all had together. There's nothing like time spent with the cousin's.
It makes for new material for family story times. LOL! Kidddd!
Besides praying for Savannah's health....we would appreciate your prayers for safe travel, good diagnosis for me, continued health for Melanie( since she will be the one driving the most) and NO CAR TROUBLE! :)
Thanks to everyone! We love and appreciate all of you!
