Our friends, Pilar and John, were coming to visit for 4 days and we were so excited. John had business in DC and Pilar and I were going to spend the time together. When they arrived they got the news their son had been taken to the hospital to have his appendix removed. So I had lunch with them and they went backto the airport. It was really great to see them, if only for a SHORT visit. They are two of our dear friends from home and hopefully they'll make it out again.
