May 24, 2012

Jason started the day off with a shower and a dressing change. The wounds don't look any worse and unfortunately they don't look any better. We won't be going in to see the dermatologist until the end of next week, so we have to just wait to see when the hyperbaric chamber work starts. I am hoping that it does fulfill all that we are being lead to believe it can do. On the other hand, I won't be too surprised if it does not. Jason was up in his chair after the new dressings and within a short time he was getting uncomfortable. We had some time before we had to go to his first appointment so I asked him to go lay back down, and he did. I got the girls fed breakfast and finished getting them ready. After they were ready we started to get ready ourselves, including Jason - and then we headed on over to the hospital. There were three appointments and that alone would be enough to wear him out. As it turned out, by the time he was done with his first appointment he was starting to feel uncomfortable and in a short while it was decided to head back home and lay back down. After getting him back in bed, I took off to pick up some lunch. There is a new taco place we hadn''t tried and I wanted to see how they were. The food was good and they got my order correct.

Not much else happened today, other than a call from the bike shop to let me know my bike was ready. I had a new set of gears mounted on the rear wheel (the entire cassette was replaced). This should make it much easier for me to get up some of the hills around here. Jason on has the one appointment tomorrow, and it is for 11:00, so that should allow me the time to pick up the bike in the morning. Speaking of picking up... I'll be picking up Linda tomorrow afternoon and we're going to have the entire weekend together. I am looking forward to this weekend.

Thank you, for all your prayers and support.

    Still here praying!
    Ephesians 3:16-19 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
