UPDATE:.................Looks like your prayers worked. All went well. The drive to Buffalo at 330a was smooth regarding traffic and weather. Since it was so early we got the pick of parking spots. Right next to the entrance and that was about 10ft from the entrance of the hospital. The place is huge and unbelievable and everyone there were so nice and helpful and kind. Even peeps in the halls that might have been visitors themselves. Since all this was such short notice (emergency surgery no time for planning but my sister sent me a list the Hospital gave here for accomodations and I selected the first one which was a hospitality house. All they had at such short notice was a room with two beds for one night. I said I would take it and figured if my BIL had a problem we could always still try looking for a hotel room. The thing was at the time of departure we had no idea for how long. They did the angiogram found out my sister didn't need stints and were able to complete the coiling (that piece costs 3000.00) We were teasing her later asking her how the reception was since now she is wired for sound. LOL Surgery went smoothly without a hitch and she seemed to be doing well. We then went in to check into Kevins House. it turns out that since we only needed the room for one night circumstances arose that made the carriage house available to us for same price as the i bedroom. That is a small apartment usually reserved for transplant patients because they need sterile environment. I took the four poster double bed and my BIL took the room with two beds. Bed was so comfortable better than my own. Apt had a kitchen with a microwave and dishwasher, bathroom with a shower, living room had a giant flat screen tv and computer and wifi. When we got the keys to the place the lady invited us for dinner. We took up the invitation. The dinner is done by volunteers and this time it was a bunch of accountants from a financial group they worked or. They said they did this once a month. We had pulled pork, mashed potatoes, asparagus, green beans, gravy, and biscuits. There even was desert. a giant chocolate chip cookie with chocolate drizzle tht still was warm. Food was buffet style set up in the kitchen and you fixed your plate and then eveyone sat at the table in the dining room. The place was furnished with antiques in a victorian style. Some pieces were stunning. They even had beer in the fridge if anyone wanted one. After dinner we went to our room and straight to bed. (I still am recovering from sleep deprivation) My sister was discharged the next morning by 8am and I was home again by 1030a. I just can't say enough nice things about the Kevin House and it will definately be on my list for donations in the future. So I'm guessing everyone's prayers really helped and now just hoping my sister follows Dr's orders cause she tends to do as she likes. Im glad the Dr didn't give in to her. Fingers crossed.
Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.
Let's see if this works: Barb and I sharing a glass of bubbly at the top of the Eifel Tower

Yeahhhhhh......It was forced upon us by Photobucket. They were holding our posted images for ransom and I had to change over the entire board to "loaded" images instead of those hosted by an "off-board" service. I realize I still have a couple bugs to work out, but my server HD died at the same time this happened, and we all had to wait for my drive to be "recovered" so I could find the images we used to build the board to begin with. I didn't find them all, but I think I managed to pull off rebuilding it pretty close to what it was. If there is anything you find missing, please let me know and I will try and figure it out.
The loss of the images was a bit frustrating, and we appreciate the work you invested in making it all pretty much the same as it was. We appreciate ALL of the tasks your routinely perform in keeping the forum up and running.
