    I was able to reschedule IVIG for a week from Monday. That's a relief.

    Thanks Cat. Will def pursue it. Hoping road to airport isn't too jammed. Leaving 3 extra hours. Latest trajectory bad for Jeanie and me. Hoping for a bobble.

    23' waves at my beach predicted. Unrideable, too much wind.

    If trajectory holds, this Irma will reshape florida.

    I heard on the news that it might destroy the Leeward Islands.

    Way back a century ago I sometimes lined up a wheelchair at airports. I always called ahead of time to reserve it but it may not be done that way any more.

    My brother and his family plus my adult nephew live together in Brooksville, FL. Only claim to fame is a famous golf course.

    They are hatching a plan. I don't have details yet. I hope they drive up to Mom's in PA.

    They had better hurry. Once the hurricane's path is positively heading to Florida, everyone and their uncle will be heading out of the state, and the traffic will be a nightmare.

    Oh Ann, they own Mar-a-lago Golf Course.

    I have no idea where Brooksville is, but anywhere in Florida is obviously risky at this point. Hope they decide to get out.

    Orlando. We are leaving house at 3:30 a.m. For a 10:00 flight. It's 90 miles away. It's the best I could do to light a fire under DH. I am grateful he put all shutters up and secured the property though.

    I hope that you aren't in an evacuation zone. Lots of prayers for you to be safe in your home.

    Just talked to my niece who is on the west coast, about in the middle of the state. They're in the "third group" to evacuate ... they're sorta ready to go...but have 3 dogs, and her mother (my sister-in-law) on kidney dialysis...so they're fretful about what to do. But they're watching carefully.
