Heading back to Houston

So long story short (for now), we decided to get a second opinion here locally regarding having the original eye surgeon in Houston do the cataract surgery or if there was one here that would be willing to do it. Not that I didn't want Dr. Carvounis to do the surgery again but traveling to Houston is not very easy.
So we wasted almost 2 weeks of waiting to hear back from this second doctor here, and surprisingly we STILL have not heard back from him. What a surprise....

Can you tell I am a little, just a little, irritated?

But I'm sure it's in God's plan's somehow.

So we are headed back to Houston, in a hurry, no less.

We are flying out tomorrow morning. Just Nick and I.  Surgery is Wednesday at 3 p.m.

Nick suddenly had blood kind of pouring out of his ear last Thursday. He has tubes and they think it was an ear infection but the nurse practitioner could not actually see his ear drum so she really was guessing. But we're on an antibiotic, both oral and ear drops.

Please pray for our flight tomorrow morning. I am concerned about how Nick is going to handle the flight. He has never flown before and I really don't know how pressure and ear tubes and no palate mix. Nor anything else Nick has going on really...but I'm praying he is not uncomfortable.

Thanks for thinking and praying for us!

It's all in God's hands, trust in Him. Know that many prayers are being said for all of you, and that you are loved.

    Do you have family or friends in Houston? My son, Dave & Kristin Baker, and his family live in Spring, just outside of Houston. If you need a listening ear or any help in any way, my daughter-in-law Kristin, is loving and compassionate and she and Dave would be more than happy to meet you and help you out. Just let me know.
