Standing by

Edited to add: She could not get on the next flight. Next one will be around 8:30, so she has one more chance.

I went to the hospital this morning to relieve my cousin who has spent every night there with her mother. Last night they actually put a bed in there for her. Why didn't they do this Monday? She was going to go home today to her home in Shreveport because they were moving her mother to the rehab floor. No one can stay with patients while they are in rehab. I came on home and got a phone call from her other daughter. She lives in Virginia, but she had managed to get to the Dallas airport. She flies free and stand by because her daughter is a flight attendant for American Airlines. Two planes have left Dallas for Shreveport and she couldn't get on either of them. There are still two more flights tonight, so I am standing by to go pick her up at the airport if she does get on one of those flights. She may be stuck there tonight because of the holiday weekend.
