May 29, 2012

Jason had a couple of appointments this morning, with one of them being the laser treatment again - the third one. We first got the girls up and I fed them breakfast, and had to do it so that it wasn't in front of Jason. He has to go without eating because of the laser treatment (it is the same as surgery, where he is put under a general anesthesia), and I didn't think it would be fair to him. Anyway, the girls and I had Rice Krispies (its one of their favorite cereals) and then we took off for the hospital, and day care.

It is really cute getting the girls into the daycare center because there is this fish tank close to the entrance. Both girls love to go over and watch the fish, and some times Stacy asks if Nemo is going to be there. They have no problems going to their classes and love to be with the teachers; yet, as I come to pick them up, at the end of the day, they always come running to me. Makes me feel pretty good. Actually today when I picked them up I had gotten Jackie first and then went over to Stacy's class. They were all outside and Stacy was playing in a sandy area. She saw me and jumped up and came running over carrying the shovel she had been playing with. She was a real mess; and, looked about as happy as could be. One of the few times I didn't have my camera, and one where I wished I did. It was such a great sight.

Anyway, Jason's treatments went well today. We had a great talk with the Urology doctor, and it looks like he wants to do some work with Jason, in a couple of weeks. This is great news as Jason is really wanting to be sure to put the infections behind him so that he can concentrate on the rest of his recovery. The laser treatment took a little over two hours from entering the PICU (that's where the treatment is done) to when we were leaving. Jason felt a little woozie but otherwise pretty good, and we came back to the house. Lunch was both quick and easy, and then Jason went to sleep for a few hours.

Not much else happened tonight until I gave the girls a bath. I got them dressed and read for bed and then took them in to see Daddy. Jason read them a story and then they went to bed. The really cool part of this is that they do it without any fight or argument, and that just makes it so much easier for both Jason and I. Right after I got the girls down in their beds I went back in to talk with Jason for a few minutes and then Jason's God Parents showed up. They had been traveling all day and got caught up in the Los Angeles traffic. They thought they were going to get here by 18:30 (6:30pm) but didn't show up until 20:45 (8:45pm). They were both very tired so they came in and visited for a little while, and brought in some enchiladas (Yolanda is a very good cook). They left and said they would be back tomorrow afternoon, after Jason's appointments tomorrow, and visit for a longer period. It was very good to see both Steve and Yolanda, and it was good for them to see Jason.

Tomorrow there are a few appointments and then we'll be back at the house by about noon or 13:00 (1pm). It looks like we're going to be having a busy week for the rest of the week, but that is the way it goes. Thank you, for your continued prayers and support, and may God Bless you all.

  2. Hope the treatments work and that there's a good plan to keep the infections from coming back!!!!!!!!!
    There is hope in the Lord! Praying right now!
    Psalms 16:7-9 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
