For all you folk out there who are wondering what is going on... My laptop hard drive has broken. Not really sure exactly what is wrong, but the system will not boot. I have it in the shop for repair, and it is hopped that they can. Worst case would be that I would have to acquire a new system, and that might take a little longer, but in the mean time I will be posting as I get a chance. I do not have access to this system on a regular basis, so please forgive the gaps in updates.

As for Jason's status - We met with the doctors and they are still struggling to figure out what the best coarse of action is. Some of what they told us was quite sobering, and Jason has taken what they said very seriously. There is some talk about additional surgeries; while also talk about eliminating some of the surgery that they thought might be needed. The biggest challenge right now is vascular, where any hope of wound healing is based on a need for a good blood supply, and right now that is the problem.

Otherwise, Jason is doing well, and his spirits are still very strong. We're having fun with the girls, when they are with us, and right now with Linda being here it is that much better. Jackie turns three in about 10 days, and we're planning to have a nice birthday party for her. Linda is directing that part of life around here and doing a really good job of it. It looks like we could have as many as 20 kids show up, if they all come.

One other item I need to inform you all about - I had mentioned in the past that I was going to be riding again in the EOD Ride, taking place in October. Because of other obligations it looks like I won't be able to be a part of that event after all. I truly apologize to you all, for setting those expectations, and I really was looking forward to it, but it wasn't to be this year. I would, however, still encourage you all to sponsor the event, as it is a good way of showing support for all those EOD guys, like Jason, who have been injured. Thank you, for all your continued support and take care and stay positive.

  1. Sorry about the computer! Can't live with 'em and can't live without 'em!
    Know you wanted to do the ride badly, so if you can't, I know it's important.
    The Lord will always use whatever you're going through for your good! Praying!
    Psalms 91:9-12 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

  2. You know I'm praying hard!
    Psalms 91:14-15 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

  3. Continuing to pray!
    Psalm 73:23-26 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

  4. What amazing words of comfort. The Holy Ghost Himself is praying for you!
    Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
