April 25, 2012

This morning started off a bit better with the fact that there were no appointments to worry about. Unfortunately Jason wasn't feeling particularly good, due to a number of issues but mostly discomfort. I was concerned for a good portion of the day, but he never seemed to really get to the point where I felt I needed to take him in. He did end up taking a little more pain medication today, and that was the first time he had asked for that in about a month, maybe longer. The biggest help was that it allowed him to sleep a little more, and it apparently got him over the hump. By the end of the day he was feeling much better and even got in a couple of good hugs for his daughters when they went to bed. I read them The Story Of Jesus, and Stacy was very interested in it. Jackie didn't seem to have the slightest idea of what I was talking about, and I finally had to just put her in her crib so I could finish reading the story to Stacy. Funny thing is, when I did put Jackie in bed, she just laid down and went to sleep - I expected at least some protest.

Today, I took the girls over to the play ground area and came across the YMCA group there, that brings toys and building blocks for the children of the military families in the area. Both Stacy and Jackie had a great time, and on top of that, Charlie and his two girls came down too, and all four of them were playing together. There were another six or seven kids there, and some mothers, so there were plenty of kids to make the place look full. We stayed for about an hour or so. I had to get them to stop and sit down for a while, as it was warmer today, and I wanted to be sure they had a snack and drank some water. Then they were off again.

Tomorrow we have to go to the hospital again, and we're going to be talking to other doctors, besides those on the appointment schedule. Especially considering the pain of the past couple of days. Jason will start off with a shower, and I am hoping that, that in itself will make him feel better. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers.

  1. Hope you can figure out the pain issues tomorrow!
    Continuing to lift up prayers!
    Psalms 71:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me. Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.

  2. I can relate to the worse than a sunburn feeling!! Going through this now with treatment on my face due to sun damage. I hope that this starts to feel better soon for you, Jason. I pray that the procedure really helps with the healing of the wounds also!! Praying everyday for you my friends.

    All my best,
