We've made it to Texas

Today (Sunday) has been great. We took an early flight out of Phoenix. Cliff did really well. After just a few seconds of fussing due to the pressure changes Cliff decided it would be best to just sleep the rest of the way. He was zonked for most all of the flight.

Once we landed we made our way to Pappas BBQ with everyone who had just finished up at church. It was great. Teri and I now think that my suits should totally color coordinate Utah her Sunday dress and hat. Looking good Houston!
Pappas was great introduction to Houston. Teri got the brisket; I got jealous.

I got the pulled pork which was also good. I really wanted to try the chicken or ribs. Maybe next time.

All in all we're off to a good start here. Many, many thanks to all those who have helped us along the way. Tomorrow we get admitted to Texas Children's and the fun begins from there.

Open heart surgery

Here's the latest on Cliff's open heart surgery.  

It appears that things are on track from the insurance perspective to go forward with the surgery in Houston, Texas.  Surgery is set for March 28 but we still have lots of details to comb through in order to make this happen.  But we're getting closer.

Thanks for your prayers and support.  We definitely feel comforted by so many people. 

Huge Thanks

We are so grateful for all the wonderful people who have helped us, are are helping us through this experience.

Our families have been great support systems for us and have given so much of their time and their talents to benefit Cliff.

We also have so many good friends who have given way more than we could have possibly imagined, sometimes a moment's notice.

To everyone we offer a heartfelt thanks! We really, truly could not do this without you.

An Inspiring Thought

Here's one quote that inspires us.
"There is no growth in the comfort zone; there is no comfort in the growth zone."
If I could figure out who to attribute this to I would, but the Internet isn't quite sure who said it.
