Flexibility is a key to managing life and enjoying the journey. Our plans all changed after we learned of Grandpa's passing on Friday. Now we are on a different path than we expected. Instead of flying to California today, we are on the road, driving, to allow us more flexibility to accommodate for the funeral and my post-operative doctor's appointments. I am still planning to have surgery on Wednesday, with my pre-ops all day tomorrow.
Therefore, the road ahead is literally a long one. After a great stay in St. George last night with our friends, we are on the road again, with 6 more hours to go. The long hot Nevada desert is ahead of us. Thank heavens we live in a day of air conditioning...oh, and wireless computer connections.
Tolan's family will all be converging in La Habra within a few days. It will be another family reunion, full of love, hugs, laughter and some tears.
Oh, one little miracle happened yesterday! As we were descending into St. George, my ear "popped" for the first time in almost 15 months! I have no idea (medically) how this happened, since my eustation tube is sealed, but it did and I am now able to pressurize a little bit! That means not as much pressure or as severe headaches upon changing elevations! Wow. I continue to feel blessed that the Lord is still healing me, one day at a time!
Here's to safe travels ahead!
