Philly Bound

John and I are leaving tonight for Philly.  I have to teach today so we are leaving as soon as I teach my last class. We won't make it all the way up but we are planning on getting within an hour of the hospital.

Tuesday morning we will leave early early from the hotel and go the rest of the way.

Rob is staying home to hold down the fort and to work on a house project that has been on the to-do list for years!  He's ripping out the carpet in our bedroom and laying down hardwood.  The carpet in our bedroom is over 20 years old and is so ready to be ripped out of there!  I voted he do it while I am gone so I don't have to live in the mess!
Aaron is excited that he will get to help his Papa after school.

 Our little boys are already missing the fact that they won't be together for a few days.

I'm not sure what Summer is thinking...

 We would definitely appreciate prayers this week.  Surgery is on Tuesday.  We are hoping to only have to stay in the hospital one night and home on Wednesday.
I will try to blog and post on Facebook if I can about how surgery went for John...


  1. Great pictures :) this dog is loved !
    Praying for safe travel surgery and all the details around it all.

  2. Keeping John in my prayers! Kelly

  3. Sending good wishes and prayers for traveling mercies, successful surgery, and quick recovery for John, with minimal pain and a great outcome.

    Hope you all make it to next summer's RR Family Reunion - back in the Bluegrass State again! I'm planning to drop by for a day, if I can...
