Turned into a great day, even though we got sweaty and dirty around the house. We had a clean up detail from the church come over and we got a great deal of work done, as well as relocate our possessions from a large storage unit to the next size down. Then after we were done we were able to sit down and have a great phone call with Jason, Bridgette and the girls. They all sounded great and it sounds like Jackie is talking more. Jason said he is doing well, and that he is going in for another procedure on Tuesday, to have the wound vac moved/changed. He was also pretty up because he got out on his prone cart and was scooting around all over the hospital. When I was at Bethesda, with him, I always went with him so they didn't have to send anyone along; now they have to send someone along to make sure he is safe, and that is a good thing. The funny aspect of it was that Jason was going to places at the hospital that the corpsman wasn't familiar with and Jason actually had to show her around, and she's been there for over a year. I think he was having a great deal of fun with it. Anyway, it was a good conversation and we'll be talking to them more regularly, at least that is the plan. Thank you, for all your continued prayers and support, and I will be updating the blog a little more regularly, as things happen. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
    Revelation 7:16-17 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

  2. These verses offer such great comfort! Praying!
    Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

  3. Whatever happens, the Lord is our shield! Praying!
    Psalms 5:11-12 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

  4. Only the Lord can give this kind of peace. Praying hard right now!
    Isaiah 26:3-4 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.
