Pete is having troubles with his right leg. He's tired, it's not responding properly, he's worried it might be an MS attack starting and he might not be able to drive. Oh and he's 450 miles away from home in western PA.
He was going to drive home on Saturday or Sunday. Now he is not sure if he will be able to.
I'm firing up the brain power to figure the best way to handle this - and it makes sense that I fly from Albany to Pittsburgh on Southwest for $150 one way. Someone picks me up there and I drive both of us home. OR someone there drives him (and has a follower to take them back home) about 200 miles and I meet them halfway (and bring my dad to drive car #2). Will cost me about the same in gas as flying out to get him.
Flying makes sense.
I really wish I didn't have to do this at all. I had plans for Saturday that included sleeping in, working in the yard, singing in church at 5pm and going straight to my sisters for a Celebrating Home Party where I would actually earn money hopefully.
Instead it looks like I'll be getting up at 3:30am to leave for the airport by 4:30 to get there at 5:30 and get on a 6:15 flight. Arriving in Pittsburgh at 10am driving an hour back to the small town he's in. Then jumping in the car and driving another 7.5 hours go get home in the evening. At least maybe I can sleep on Sunday?
I'm just praying that if he takes it easy and rests he'll see he is just tired and it's not really an MS attack.
Probably wishful thinking.
