March 20, 2012 - Spring has Sprung!

No rain today, and in fact, a very nice day, without a cloud in the sky. We started with a new Home Health Aid (HHA), Larry, today, and I am hopeful that he is going to work out for us. His personality is excellent and he and Jason seem to get along just fine. On top of that, he's a big guy, so if Jason should ever need help he will be able to do the job (that's a big one for me). Larry grew up in the Army, where his father stayed for over 20 years, so he is very familiar with the military, though he does not have any active duty time, himself.

We went to the Naval Base Hospital and took care of a couple of appointments for Jason, and then we had lunch in the Galley. They were serving food that was from the Philippine Islands. Not that it was made in the islands, just the recipes... and Larry seemed very please with the offerings, too. When we were done with our lunch we headed right back to the van and headed back to the house. Jason was ready to get back to bed, so that he could, as he would say, "get off my feet."

Not much else to write about today, so I'll just leave it at that. I hope everyone had a great first day of Spring, and I should have more to go over tomorrow. We have a couple of appointments tomorrow, with one of them being with the laser doctors, so we can get an idea of what is going to be happening next. Thank you, for all your prayers and continued support.

  1. Glad you had better weather! Hope it lasts!
    Continuing to lift up prayers!
    Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
