Well, we're back in the apartment, and Jason is feeling fine. It was an interesting journey that left a few questions dangling out there. When in the ER, they stated that there was an indication of infection AND he had an elevated white blood cell count. Today, they say there is no indication of any infection and that the blood is perfectly fine as well. They don't know what happened and that he was free to head back over here (to the apartment/building 62) this afternoon or tomorrow. It took Jason about 1/2 second to decide...maybe not that long.

The major snow storm that we were expecting, and the entire base was just about shut down, as a result of, never materialized. About the only real positive that came of Jason going back into the hospital was getting to see the President again. We didn't know he was coming, but the timing couldn't have been any better. Oh well, strange things do happen.

Anyway, we're back in the apartment and tomorrow we will be taking care of some departure coordination. We still don't know when we're leaving, but because of the hospital visit I am concerned that some of the "balls" have been potentially dropped. We also need to do a little grocery shopping, that is if we want to eat at home, rather than going out each night. I am also planning on doing some of the preliminary packing, to  get it ready to be shipped out. Other than that, we'll just take it easy. Thank you, for all your continued support and all the prayers being sent our way.

  2. Continuing to pray!
    Romans 8:15-18 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
