|July 28, 2004 -- I've made it to Houston, Texas.
Unfortunately the directions I got from our company computer system via the
Qualcomm here in my truck are really garbled. I can't make heads or tails of
them. I believe I'm parked near where I'll be unloading, so the only
alternative I have is to wait until 8:00 AM when the place opens and call
them on my cell phone to find out precisely where they want the load
delivered. The delivery address is different from the directions to the
receiver. The phone number goes to yet a different address in a different
part of town. Very confusing!!!!
Dad called me around Noon to say that Mom
had successfully gone through the heart "catheterization" process. They said
she had 90% blockage in one of her arteries. They were able to clear the
blockage and put in a "stint" so that should take care of her
shortness-of-breath symptoms. He said she should be able to go home from the
hospital in a day or two provided she continues to do okay.
