February 17, 2012

I know today is Friday, but it sure felt like a Saturday. With the appointments taken care of yesterday, there were none for today. Jason didn't have to get up any earlier than he wanted, and he didn't have to do anything, unless he wanted to. About the only thing we did was go to the grocery store and pickup a few things, so that I could roast a chicken for dinner tonight (which I did, and it came out great). We did still manage to forget a couple of things, but they were things that we really weren't out of yet, and can get tomorrow or even Sunday.

They changed the dosage of the antibiotic that he has been taking for the past 14 days, to a reduced amount. It makes setting up the I.V. just a little easier, but not by much. It still has to be set up, and I still do it in the evening, and it still runs for about 30 minutes (+/-). Once a week they do a bit of lab work on his blood (a registered nurse comes in to get his blood each week), and I guess they determined that he could be taking a lesser dosage now, and we will be finishing out the treatment with this lowered dose.

The other thing I finally was able to get accomplished, was to get his truck registration for California brought back up-to-date. Now all I need to do is to find the time to get up to Los Angeles and bring the truck back down. It currently sits at his brother David's house, and will soon be back at Jason's house. We'll need to decide if it goes into the garage or sits in the driveway.

Well, that is about all for today - Linda (a.k.a. Mom) will be back down again for this weekend, so I'll be picking her up at the airport in the morning. Jason said he is okay with not going, and just wants to laze around the house for most of the morning. Perhaps we'll get him out and do some furniture shopping tomorrow (he wants a work station/desk). Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers.
