Sunday evening, the count down continues...

Dear Ones,
Nan is doing pretty well today, Terry pronounced her ready for the cruise when she was here this afternoon. She has been up for most of the day and we just finished some raviollis which turned out to be less than perfect. She has been drinking water, cranberry juice and playing with lemons today. Pam arrived this afternoon to sit with Nan and help her create a short history on Nan's GIST experiences.

We are finishing up on packing the medical supplies and pretty soon I have to start packing my own stuff. And of course my computer is acting up as I need to write at least one more appraisal before we go.

Right now we have a fire burning and Nan is choking down her many pills, never an easy process because they require lots of water and that creates nausea. She usually makes it through though.

We plan to head out tomorrow about 11 for Hayward first to pick up some more TPN and then to the ship in San Francisco. We board and the ship sails at around 3 pm we think. I think we will follow the coast down for the next day. Hopefully during that time we will be able to use the laptop. Sprint told me today that their service will not work in Mexico which is contrary to what the lady at the desk at Sprint told me. So it will be a challenge to blog for the next 10 days. However we will try to get the good word out.

Nan continues to slowly lose the extra weight and fluids she is carrying and gradually I think she might be feeling slightly better overall. She was heartened this morning by a call from Jason. He and Jo were heading to the aquarium for the morning and then back for campus security duty which I'm sure they are all taking a bit more serious these days with so many awful things happening at schools.

I have such mixed emotions tonight. After nearly a year of intense concern for Nan's health and very little down relaxing time the thought of doing nothing but relaxing for the next 12 days seems unbelievable. So we move into a new experience, adventure and we hope, pray that God will guide and protect as we travel, enjoy some sun, sea breezes and good food.

Well we must wrap up for the evening. Thank you for your love, prayers and support.
