At 4:30 PM we left the dealer and went on our way. We pulled off around 6 to get JH something to eat because he had not slept and we knew if he had a fully belly that might help. We got all the way to Gary, IN (which is south of Chicago) and a car pulls over and tells us we have a flat. So we pull off... in a NOT SO NICE AREA! And strart to investiage. AAA is a 4 hour wait... so we pull out our handy dandy iphones and start searching. Well after several stops for fix a flat and air we pulled into a Wal-Mart for them to have tire fixed.
**JH throwing a fit at Wal-Mart, and I wanted to throw one too**
JH finally fell asleep and we were on our way... we still had another 5 to 6 hours to go. The traffic was rough... and we were tried. We pulled off a couple of times to switch drivers... and finally at 3AM MN time (4 AM Indy time) we arrived. With a tried family who needed some sleep. I called to check on dad and JH and Eric slept in a separate room that was dark which would hopefully allow them to sleep longer... well at least that is what I told them because my MIL had turned on the electric blanket for me and I was thrilled to crawl into a warm bed.
Dad is home from surgery, they had t0 repair the main nerves and tendons. It also got his ligaments. The hopefully were able to repair the whole thing. He will start physical therapy soon and will not be able to drive the bike for about 6 weeks. We are so thankful he is ok and pray for a speedy recovery!
