Home...for now

We got back from Chicago this afternoon after spending one more day there then we had planned. Originally my sister and I were both to get a battery of tests on Wednesday. We drove up Tuesday evening, and then spent all day Wednesday. Fortunately we drove separately. Her tests were completed by 3:00 or so. On the other hand my were not only not completed, some had to be put off until today. So as my sister and her husband drove back o Louisville, we had to drive back to the hotel we had checked out of Wednesday morning and get another room. On the bright side, the tests were completed, and we were told that barring any odd results the transplant should happen within four weeks. So it really looks like I'll be spending Holy Week, the Triduum and Easter in the hospital. Hey, why not? What better way to celebrate the Resurrection than to get the gift of a new chance at life. We go back to Chicago on St. Patrick's Day to see the Dr. and get the test results. Hopefully the date for the transplant will be set then. Maybe we'll have the luck of the Irish!

If you and your wife tire of eating Au Bon Pain in the lobby of the U of C hospital, I'll be glad to bring you something better.

Best to you,

For what "IT" is worth, I pray that Saint Patrick will take a quick look at your tests results from His green pasture and wish you a quick recovery on his special day.

God Bless
