UPDATE: Turns out Angel Flights will not be a option so we will drive there.

So we move on from one thing to another!

The social worker called, as did Angel Flights. We were accepted, as long as the weather is good and there is no problem with the pilots being out sick. We are only allowed to take 25 pounds of luggage on board for all three of us! There is just no way for us to manage that. The plane is really small and can only take so much weight. If I had some flyer miles, I would use those. Maybe if I wasn’t so fat!

Anyway, it looks like we will have to drive instead. That way we will have a way to get around when we arrive in Maryland. The social workers are trying to get us a children’s house for a place to stay, but there is no guarantee. I am concerned about what it will cost us to stay down there.

The social workers says it is much more expensive there than here in Greenville. Motels cost $89 per night, even with a hospital discount. Staff at the hospital pays $100 a month just to park. We will be there for a week or two, so the cost could run in the high hundreds. Not quite sure how we will manage to pay for that.

Whatever it takes, I have to be there with Tyler. His surgery will be 15 to 18 hours long. It is scheduled for June 16th, six weeks from now. They told us that Tyler will probably need a tracheotomy and a feeding tube. I really hope we can get by without the tracheotomy. That is so painful for him and he is already in so much pain.

Please help us out if you can. Here is the address:

P.S. Just let me know if you need the phone number for Angel Flights. I’ll send it right over to you.
