Tomorrow my Dad, Valerie, Chelsea (Val's daughter) and I are off to Baltimore so Valerie can get ready for her operation. My Dad is going to return home the same day (poor man, he has made numerous trips and come home the same day). After we get settled in, Valerie is going to have her operation the next day (on Weds.).
Trying to find housing has been crazy. The place where we stayed last time is waiting till the very last minute (until Tuesday - the day we are driving up!) to tell us whether we have a room or not. It is the best place to stay for a number of reasons. If we can't get in there, then we have to stay in a local hotel, some of the hotels being a little bit far away from Johns Hopkins Hospital, in a not so good area in the city.
Val's surgery is 6 AM on Wednesday, so I hope we don't get up there too late on Tuesday (tomorrow), because I don't want her to be too tired on the morning of the surgery. Gee, scheduling surgery for 6 AM, that is awful early, she is going to have to get up really early that morning to get ready.
Well, I guess that is all for now. If you don't hear from me for awhile, that means I had no access to a computer while I was in Baltimore, or I had no time. My first priority, of course, will be to my sister. But if I have access to a computer, I will check in and let you all know how things are going, even if it is for five minutes on one of the days. God bless and think of me and mine.
