Audra and Hope made it to KY safe and sound, but tired...due to a delay from the arriving flight, they didn't leave 'till 5:30, then had to fly in a holding pattern for an hour or two (lovely, I'm sure, with a baby) due to a storm over St. Louis. Said storm turned what was to be a 2.5 hr. layover into a mad dash to the other end of O'Hare, because when they finally landed in Chicago her connecting flight to Louisville (pronounced 'LOO-uh-vuhl,' as my wife was quick to inform me while we were dating) was boarding. Yeah. So they made it OK, and were too tired to think about calling, so they woke me up this morning to let me know they'd arrived. God be praised.
My uncle Jeff got through the transplant OK, and Nancy seems to be receiving the kidney well, but due to shortness of breath and possible heart problems (?!) Jeff is going to be in the ICU for a few more days. Thanks for prayers so far. Continue, please.
