Another complication-- they have sold their home in southern CA and were scheduled to move to Livermore on 31 July. They have to get all of their stuff out of their home. Fortunately, they already have an apartment in Livermore to send the stuff to, and Suzanne's family is relatively nearby in southern CA.
I know I haven't always gotten along with my brother but I do love him and his wife. So, if you have any good vibes to spare, please send them that way. I'm worried about this.
