We ate at the hotel for breakfast. It is a very basic breakfast, but we got filled up.
We went to the oral surgeon at 10:00 for Sister Fanning’s appointment. Her implant post passed the torque test, and there was no scar tissue.
We went straight to the dentist for Sister Fanning’s 11:00 appointment. The dentist checked the implant post, took pictures of the inside of her mouth for the crown, and sent us on our way. We finished at 11:30.
We decided to visit some good friends. We stopped at VanderKoois’ home. We surprised Janice. She was just reading our post about packing for Idaho and wondered where in Idaho we were. She called Steve to come home from their son’s house. They fixed us lunch, and we spent several hours just visiting. We had a wonderful time.
We next drove to the Haskells’ home. Janaan and Darryl were both there. We spent a couple of hours talking to them. They are preparing to go on a senior mission and had lots of questions. We had a wonderful visit with them.
We drove to Texas Road House to have dinner with our daughter, April, and her family. We had a good dinner and a great visit. They had some good news to give us about possible better job prospects for both her and Tony.
We drove back to the hotel, and April and her family joined us. We gave the kids a card game – It Came to Pass – which they love. We played a game in the lobby. April, Quinn, and Marissa came in first, second, and third. We finished at 9:15, and they went home to put the kids to bed.
As we were leaving the lounge area, we passed the desk and the clerk asked if we were the Fannings. She was our oldest son’s teacher advisor in junior high school. We talked to her for 45 minutes. She wanted to know all about Reed, Jr. We showed her a picture and told her what he is doing now. She told us to tell him she was proud of him. She also gave us the name of a supplement that may help Elder Fanning. She took it after her stroke, and it helped with her memory.
By the time we got to our room, it was 10:00. We had been gone over 12 hours. We spent some time winding down.
We went to bed late.
