Return visit to Minneapolis delayed

In light of the severe winter storm occuring between us here in Georgetown and the Twin Cities we have decided to postpone our departure by one day.  Hopefully this will allow the storm to pass by and allow the road crews some time to clean up.

The majority of our travel concerns centred around the city of Chicago.  Apparently they are being hit the hardest out of all the areas along the route.  We had considered not changing our plans and pressing on, but as we received more and more reports of poor conditions we began reworking our arrangements.

Luckily, Dr. Pluhar is very accomodating and arranged for Rilley's MRI to take place on Friday instead.  Even the hotel we booked changed our reservation without any issues.  Coincidentally, we received an email from Dr. Pluhar yesterday to let us know that Rilley's sixth and final vaccine will be ready for injection when do finally make it.  The lab was having a great run at growing the cells for this round.  The best news about this is that we won't need to deal with any trouble that the courier company can cook up!  No more customs brokers, whoo hoo!

So in the end, despite the set back due to weather, everything seems to be falling nicely into place.  Sorry Minneapolis/St. Paul, Rilley's triumphant return is delayed, but only by a day!
