1. on Wednesday, Jan 17, I think, he will have a root canal and a temporary crown. I know Mom had a one day thing. that sounds good but we do not have that yet! He has several other teeth that neeed work but this was the most urgent. The dentist had to sign off on him before the hreat guys would do their thing! of course, dental work is no easy task. he has to have an infusion of antibiotics no more than 1.5 hours before his dental work begins. soooooooooo we will go to the infusion center at the hospital between 6:30 and 7am and be at the dentist by 8am. If all goes well, I may not be too late for work! Since Alex can't drive down to the hospital, I need to take him. But the dentist is only a few blocks from home so all is good.
2. On Jan 23 we will go to the Univ of Chicago and he will have a angiogram to check for blockages. I think they may do a carotid atery check (in the neck) too. If they find anything they will take care of it on Wed during surgery.
(Chris, don't get all excited by this. If you don't want to come home that's ok!) I think Chris may come home and be with me on the 24th. He has no classes on Wednesday. (well, none on Mon or Friday either - ohhhh to be a Senior. He does have classes alllllll day on Tuesday and Thursday though!!!) Chris, if you decide not too that is ok. Paula has offered to come to the hospital on Wednesday. I know that this is a long way for you to travel. I am not sure of the time but will let you know.
So, I think that is it.
Love to you all, :) Ruth (and Mom)
So yeah we can really use your prayers in the upcoming weeks. This is "very unwelcome" as she has said in her email and we are all praying that he will come out of it alright.
Thank you in advance for all of your prayers,
Brian and the Reynolds Family
