Just wanted all of you to know Blake made it safe and sound to Mackinac Island Wednesday afternoon. He made all his connections, with time to spare, and landed in Pellston at 2:50 p.m.
We got back to the island at 4 p.m., and Blake was fading fast. He had not slept in 26 hours (he had a middle seat in the back of the plane from Shanghai to Detroit – 14 1/2 hours), but wanted to try and stay awake until he’d eaten dinner and then go to bed at a somewhat “normal” American time to help him get over his jet lag. We walked down to the Gatehouse, had dinner, and came right back home. He walked in the condo, said he was going to “close his eyes a minute” on the couch and fell into the deepest sleep I have ever seen. I finally got him awake enough that he could walk into the guest bedroom and go to bed. He was out like a light!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the prayers that were lifted up for his safe travels. God bless.
