July 7, 2012

Jason spent most of the day in bed. He got up twice, for two different reasons. First he wanted to take a shower, and obviously there is a specific need for him to be out of the bed for that one. I changed the dressings on his wounds and they are looking okay, though the smaller wound has actually gotten a little bigger, and there is a "new" wound on his right side. Jason said he might want to talk with the dermatology folks to see if he should have another laser treatment. There was some progress with that, even if it did seem a little worse after the treatment. A few days afterward and the wounds looked to be healing up a bit. The other reason for Jason getting out of the bed was to come to the backyard.

Linda had organized a birthday party for me, though my birthday isn't until Monday. It turned out nice, and we had a good turn out of people and the social gathering was better than I initially expected. I guess I should sometimes listen to her... ;-) I grilled up some burgers and hotdogs and there was plenty of food for everyone. The party started at about 16:00 (4pm) and lasted until everyone was gone. There were some pictures taken, and I still need to down load those so that I can post them on to the blog. We had a number of folks stop by and just about everybody got a chance to eat. I hope most of this makes sense, as I just got hit with a large dose of, "I'm tired!" I started the day with a good bike ride and have been busy ever since.

Thank you, for all the support you've gen to Jason and his recovery, as well as all the prayers.

  1. I wish the doctors could "fix" the HO. That seems to be causing all the problems with new wounds. I'll continue to pray for healing in that area. Sounds like a nice gathering there for your Bday. I wish we could have been there!

    Have a wonderful Sunday and tell everyone hello and we send hugs.

    All our best,

  2. Happy birthday, George! Glad you had such a great celebration!
    Always here praying!
    Psalms 121:5-8 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
