Last Sunday around noon we found a flight to Pittsburg from Providence for a "reasonble" amount that left at 4pm. We hurriedly packed our pokes and headed for TF Green. We made it in plenty of time. The wife and I with our solidly middle class look must have set off all the alarms as being terrorists, we had to go through the strong puffs of air machine!
The week with mom and dad was great. We met with the Ear Nose and Throat doctor, he had performed the biopsy, hoping to find out what the problem with pop was. We didnt. The biopsy is going for a second reading and the thoraic surgeon will perform a different biopsy.
Just keep hoping and praying for mom and dad.
