It was Jason's first year walking - it's always nice to add a new person to the group. We survived the snow along the way, even though it was a little difficult to get through in a few spots with the strollers. There weren't very many walkers overall. We usually have to park several blocks away, but this year we parked in the lot right by the park. We were outside with the kids during the program, so we must have missed the announcement of not going to the 2nd checkpoint. We got that far and didn't see anyone else there with refreshments, which they normally have. We also didn't see anyone coming up behind us. But we got twice the walk in. One guy from another team decided to go all the way to Soldiers Field, but that would have been too difficult through the snow with the strollers. (I also noticed the date is wrong on my camera!)

As for Sax's upcoming appointment, our plan is that Sax is getting admitted on Thursday after his surgery. His tune-up will consist of IV antibiotic cocktail and CPT 4x daily. He is expected to be in the hospital until May 19th. It could be a few days more or a few days less, depending on what his cultures grow. I will try updating here daily while we are in....
