December 25 - Merry Christmas, Take Two

Today was a pretty good day, though there were a number of challenges we faced. As a result of the challenges Linda will be headed up to our son David's house tomorrow (we will be driving up there with Jason and the girls), and she will not be coming back down to Jason's place. Then, a few days from now she will headed back home. Otherwise it was a nice day, with the girls having a great time with all the presents from so many people, and even some from Santa!

I fixed a turkey for dinner tonight, and realized just how many things were still yet to be stocked in the kitchen. I was able to make it work though, and that turkey came out nice and moist. After dinner we all talked for a short while and then I made sure Jason had all his meds for the rest of the night, and helped him get to his bed, and insured he was comfortable. We will be leaving at about 09:00 tomorrow morning, so we won't be too rushed. I've talked to him about taking a shower a couple of times, but he doesn't want to consider it, as it takes too much time (I don't think it does).

Next week, Tuesday, he has an appointment, and I am expecting that to go well, as well as quickly. His wounds are doing well, and we can not let up on our care, especially now, when they are so close to finally being closed.

I hope you all had a great Christmas, and that you all enjoyed your families. God bless all of you, and thank you, for remembering to pray for us, and keeping us in your thoughts.

  1. Holidays can be challenging sometimes with family, I KNOW.

    I bet the little gals really had fun with Santa and all, I'm so glad. Hopefully, you got some cute pictures!

    Drive carefully tomorrow up to L.A.

    Maybe you can get Jason to take a shower when he gets back from David's, it is good for the wounds.

    Continuing to pray!
    All our best,

  2. The Lord will always be there to get you through whatever you have to face. Praying!
    2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
