February 4, 2012

The girls are back with us now, and Jason is very happy about that. They were picked up early this morning, about 09:00, and the girls seemed quite excited to be coming to "Daddy's house." Toliver, Jason's new support person and nurse, went with us to get the girls, so they had a new person to meet as well. Toliver will be working with Jason on weekends, or possibly another person, he wasn't quite sure how it was going to be work out. During the week there will be a different person, another nurse, whom we have not met yet. We'll get to meet him on Monday. At this point we don't have a person coming in on Sunday, though I am asking them to continue to search for someone who is available.

We went over to Office Depot to pick up a couple of things for Jason, and while we were there he wanted to take a look at their office furniture. They had a desk there that was a nice desk and when Jason moved up to it with his wheelchair he fit like it was made for him. I think that he might have wanted to buy it right there except we didn't have anyway to get it back home (I was thankful for that). I would rather he do a little more searching and research, rather than just buying the first desk that looks like it works. He could end up spending several hundred dollars more than he has to. We'll be going to a few other places over the next several days (weeks?).

The girls went to bed early tonight, and very easy actually. They went to bed so easy that it left me a little concerned, like, "why are they so tired?" They did have a busy day, so that could be explanation enough. Toliver made the comment about how well behaved the girls were, and that he wished his girls would have been more like them, when they were growing up (he told me his girls are 17 and 19 now). Jackie is starting to walk a little more now, though she still seems to prefer the crawl.

Tomorrow is going to be a nice relaxed day here. We're supposed to have some very nice weather so we may take them over to the park to let them play outside for a little while. Jason still can't be up on his chair for too long of a period, so we won't be able to be out long regardless of where we go. From what I understand the girls are wanting to watch some of the Super Bowl, anyway, though they don't really care who wins.

Thank you, for all your prayers and continued support.

    Philippians 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
