    Default Leaving On A Jet Plane - Tuesday for Atlanta

    This morning at around 9:30 am Hawaii ST, Kat called me! We have confirmation that Matt will have his surgery on Friday morning at 7:30 am, he'll need to check in for Pre-Op on Thursday!!! For me to get there on time for watch the children...I need to leave tomorrow to get there on Wednesday morning. Yikes!

    Checked for fares and they all are crazy, even if I would change planes 2-3 times. I bit the bullet and taking a non-stop from Honolulu at 5:40 pm Tuesday, arriving into Atlanta at 7:15 am Wednesday. Matt will be in at least a week from his actual surgery, I figure I'll stay an extra week afterwards to help out.

    I have a room at an Extended Stay by the hospital where Kat and the kids will be staying with me. Otherwise Kat would have to drive 1.5 one way to see Matt, don't want her driving at night. Once he goes home, I'll move to a hotel near their house.

    On top of everything else, Matt grandmother Miss Rooney is in the hospital (his mom's mother) not well at all with mini strokes and complications. Karen is worried of course about her mother and her son, I told her not to worry about the grandkids. She needs to take care of her mom and visit Matt plus take care of her Dad who is in Assisted Living who is also worried about his ex-wife (they're still friends). A bit of stress going on but we can handle it - we Schmer women have been through this many a times in the last four years. We're pros!! At least that's what Kat and I keep telling ourselves. lol

    Well, got to go finish some more stuff for the trip. Gather up two extra suitcases of things that I'm going to leave behind in their storage unit. I get to bring 3 suitcases for free with my ticket, might as well use it.

    Prayers would be appreciated by the Schmer/Steger Clan

    T - is it TRUE?

    I really need to get off the exclamation point.

    Praying for safe flight for you and speedy recovery for Matt. Also for the rest of the family going through all of this. You all really do need to catch a break. One thing after another it seems. We do tend to feel like pro's fighting life's battles after a while. TC of them, but don't forget to take care of yourself. ((((Ruby))))
