Kind of a laid back day, with not much going on. We put the trash and recycle bins out last night, but there was still more to put in. Most of it was recycle, and even afterward I found a box full of cardboard that didn't make it out. That's okay, it is only one box, and they'll get it next week.

After getting up this morning, I went for a quick ride (I'm attempting to stay more dedicated to my riding so that I will be ready for the EOD ride this coming year) and put in a quick 10 miles. Jason had made an appointment for Gracie, with the vet, so I had to be sure I was back in time to clean up. We left for the vet appointment and once at the doctor's office we didn't have to wait very long at all. The doctor is a thorough look at Gracie and couldn't find anything definitive about why she is limping, but there is a noticeable limp. After he and Jason discussed it, it was determined to provide her with some pain meds and Gracie was to be put on bed rest for the next two weeks. After that we bring her back if there is still a problem and the doc will take another look. There is a high likelihood that x-rays are going to be on the agenda, if she continues to limp. The vet said that she may have just sprained something, but couldn't identify specifically where it came from. The real important thing was that Gracie was comfortable with him checking, and he seemed to know how to handle her.

Other than that we just stayed at home and let the girls play with all their new toys and things. This also gave Linda an extra moment to get some rest, and that is a good thing for sure. Tomorrow we will be headed up to see David, Miriam and the boys, Dylan and Ethan (our son David and his family). The only down part is that Gracie isn't supposed to travel so Jason is staying home with her. Perhaps that is a better thing, since the house will be quiet and the two of them can get some real rest. Jason has been left alone before, for several hours, and we anticipate this time won't be any different. Worst case he has his cell phone and Medic Alert within reach. We've already spoken with David and he understands that we won't be staying very late, we just want to get some time to let the kids play, and we would like to see the family too.

That's about it for now. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. It's hard when an animal can't let you know what's going on. My dog stepped on something that cut her pad really badly. They ended up having to take part of the pad off. Hope Grace feels better soon! Yeah, that whole bed rest thing is going to be fun! She's not going to understand that, either!
    Praying!
    Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

  2. Know that I'm here praying!
    Revelation 21:1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
