Thank you so much joemom. Turns out it was the distributor cap. My husband has since fixed the problem. We're so relieved that it was something fairly simple and inexpensive. The car is running like a dream once again, and I be back on my way to visit my dad. Again, much thanks for the help. It sure did the trick.
