April 6, 2012

I got up this morning, and found everybody still asleep. I didn't think it was that early, only about 06:30, but I guess everyone else did. I went down to make sure that Jason had taken his meds, and found that he was asleep still, and I needed to wake him up to take the meds. That was probably only the third time, since being here, that I have had to wake him. Usually he has taken them before I show up, and if he is asleep I let him stay asleep, today I had to wake him. When I checked on the girls they were both asleep and looking very cute, so I went on back up to my room. Linda was sleeping so I just took a quick look at my email. Jason's first appointment was at 11:00 this morning, so no rush to get everyone moving, and then I noticed that Linda sounded kind of funny, I went in to check on her and found out that she had caught a cold. She ended up spending most of the day in bed, with a good portion of that just sleeping, and that was a good thing. She seems to be much better now, so I am hopeful that she has been able to kick that bug. We think she may have caught it from her mother, but it doesn't seem to be anywhere near as bad as Mom's was - that's why I'm hopeful.

Jason only had one appointment with OT and that went quite smoothly. After I got him back to the house we had lunch and then the girls went down for their naps, and Jason laid back down on his bed. With all of them laying back down and with Larry and Linda still in the house I felt comfortable heading out to Costco. We needed a few things, with one of the most important being Apple Juice (Linda reminded me just prior to going) for the girls. Well, I got everything that was on the list, and then a few other things - just forgot to get the apple juice (it wasn't on the list). Oh well, I can run down to the store and pick some up. Besides the girls seem to like the Trader Joes brand the best.

Dinner was left overs from the big dinner that Linda's mom made the day before. We took the girls up to the bath and they got all cleaned up, after playing in the tub for almost 30 minutes. Then it was time for bed. Both of them seemed to go into very happy mode, as they were running in to see daddy and then running back out, just to turn around and do it again. I think Jason was enjoying their goofy acting, and then they went up to kiss and hug Daddy goodnight. Once they were down and in bed I was able to get up stairs to work on this posting. Today is Good Friday and it has been one for us, in multiple ways. Thank you for all your prayers and for all the continued support being sent our way. There are a number of you who have done a little more to help us, and I know we haven't always been on top of the game by giving thanks, but please do know that we do appreciate it. Heck, there are some who have sent gifts that we don't even know, and I'd like to say a special thank you, to them and hope they read this blog to see it. Take care and God Bless you all.
