January 22, 2012

Okay, I may have to wait until Wednesday to be able to upload some pictures of the newest member of the household, Boomer. The wifi here is great, and free, with one small challenge associated with it. It is slower that the economic recovery, and has very little bandwidth to accommodate picture transfers. I guess I just got lucky the other day when I posted the other pictures, though even then it did take quite a long while to get those pictures loaded. Be of good cheer, and know that pictures are on their way, and you will get a chance to see Boomer.

Today was a good day for Jason, that is until towards the end of the day. He started to get some phantom pain on his left side. He hadn't had any phantom pain for several months now, and suddenly his "left foot" was hurting, significantly. Now they did tell us that occasionally that type of reaction should be expected, so we're not too worried about it, at least not yet. He will be going in to see his primary doctor tomorrow, though it won't be Dr. Malone (she back at Bethesda). It will be Dr. Piyo and he seems pretty competent, so generally we still pretty happy about the medical support.

Actually, that is the only appointment we have for Jason's medical stuff, so we can get back home and continue with other clean up stuff, and putting away things. Right now I have a bunch of cardboard to cut up and recycle, and that will make some room in the garage. I thought about just giving the boxes away, but some of them are damaged, and others are just worn down, so its time for recycle.

We had pizza tonight, and I think I've found a pizzeria that we will be going back to. Funny thing is that it has the same name as an East Bay City - Berkeley's Pizza. I don't know if there is any connection, but the pizza was good. Too bad about the 49ers. I was hoping to see them in the Super Bowl again. I guess, if you consider how the team started out this year, with a new coach and all their recent history, you'd have to say they did better than expected. Oh well, there's next year... ;-)

Thank you, for all the support and prayers you've been sending our way. Please continue to keep us in your prayers and also all those that placing themselves in harms way, to protect this country.

  1. Sorry to hear about your phantom pain Jason. I'll pray for relief of that tonight.

    Looking forward to pics of the little puppy.

    Enjoy your time with your uncle next week and have some fun.

    All my best,

  2. If he'd just gotten out of the way of the ball the end would have been totally different! Ah well...such is the nature of the beast, I guess!
    Know that I'm still here praying for your family!
    2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
