Well, it's patched and remounted.  Now we wait.  I will check it in the morning and hopefully I don't have to order a new tire.

I put 18 lbs in it last night.  That's the max it will take.  I checked it with two different gauges and they were a lb off.  This morning it read 17 so it might be good.  The 18 might have been a fluke or I might have let a little out last night when I checked it 6 or 7 times, fumbling around and let a touch of air out.  Hopefully it's good because I dont think I have time to get a tire to the house in time for Sunday morning

If it’s cooler out after the night, psi may drop a tad too. Just checking them multiple times can easily cause psi to drop

Hadn't considered the temp drop.  Very good point.  I should know that.  I checked at 5am and it was 50 degrees.  It was closer to 80 yesterday evening when I filled it.  Makes me feel better about that 1 psi.

The rule of thumb ( for what that is worth ) is 1 PSI for every 10* F.

This is for a tire on the ground in that air temp, I don't know if the shop floor reached the 50* temp or that was only outside air temp.
