It’s one o’clock in the morning here in Ft. Lauderdale. Sam and I are just about to retire, but are trying to chart our course for tomorrow after picking up the new (to me) car that I purchased on Ebay. It was a very spontaneous decision to travel here really. The auction ended at eight o’clock last night and I booked plane tickets and a hotel room shortly thereafter. So, here we are. Lord willing, if all goes well, we will pick the car up in the late morning and start heading back home, maybe making a few stops along the way. Also, I did finally find out that my Explorer is officially totaled, which means the insurance company will be contributing the pre-accident value of it towards this new purchase which will be immensely helpful. It’s kind of sad to see it go! So far, Ft. Lauderdale has been quite interesting. Max, a taxi driver from Haiti, drove Sam and me from the airport to the Hampton Inn (Hampton Inn wi-fi making this post possible!) and we were able to have a very brief conversation in French. Now, my French is super-limited, but he was still entertained that I could say a few words.

In other news, mom got her post-surgery tubes removed today, a process that gratefully was not nearly as painful as last time. Now the healing process should be able to be completed. Please continue to pray for the final results that we hope to receive next week regarding the examination of the lymph nodes.
