Just to let everyone know, my dad had a knee replacement on Monday in Houston. He also developed a staph infection and fever. It was iffy if they would release him today. Thankfully they did! Mom had to ready the rig (Recreational Vehicle) by herself. He was released around noon and they managed to beat the mass exodus for Hurricane Ike. They arrived home this afternoon. I appreciate all of your prayers for Dad and for Mom. I'm positive that they helped keep them ahead of everyone else. Please continue to pray for all of those in Ike's path.
