May 20, 2012

Not much going on today. We had breakfast with the girls, and it was a little different from most of the rest of this past week. Jason typically has his breakfast without getting out of bed, and then only gets out when he has to. Today he got up at about 06:30 and decided he wanted to take a shower. After the shower he had new dressings put on his wounds, and by the way, they're looking better. In fact, all of the area is looking better, and I'm pretty happy about it, considering I've been the one to see it every time. Anyway, after the shower the girls got up and were full of energy as they always are, and Jason decided to get dressed, to come have breakfast with the girls. In hindsight, I think this may have been an error because by 09:00 he was feeling uncomfortable and needed to get back in bed, which lead to us not going to church today. Well, we don't need to attend every Sunday, we just like to attend regularly.

The rest of the day was spent doing some laundry and lazing around the house. I did walk over to the mail box and pick up the Saturday mail, but other than that not much went on. Jason has appointments tomorrow, and more importantly, the girls BOTH start at their day care on the naval base. This will be the first time since we've been in San Diego, that they have both been enrolled in a regular day care program. The drop in center was good, and the folks there got to know the girls, so they will be missed. However, I do believe this will be better for the both of them, as well as us.

Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers - we're working to make things better all the time and God is guiding us along the way.

  1. Wow, what wonderful news about the wounds looking better!! That is a true blessing. It's been a long road with that!! I'm happy to hear about the girls getting to get to school together :-) It will be much easier to get around to all the appointments and such and being able to rest a bit yourself. I've seen nothing but miracles along this journey and I don't see why there can't be another. Have a wonderful evening and a great day tomorrow.

    All our best,

  2. So glad the wounds are looking better!
    Continuing to pray!
    Psalms 130:1-2, 5-7 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD. Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications (5-7) I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
