Okay, we are now two weeks into the new year, and so far it seems like not much has changed, that is, with regard to our daily lives. I woke up feeling a bit better and after getting the girls to their pre-schools and Jason to his appointments, we came back home (I'll tell you more about the appointments in a moment). As we were getting ready to head back to the house Jason only had one more thing to do, and that was to get his prescriptions into the pharmacy, so that we could pick them up later, when we came back for Jackie. He asked me if I had anything planned and I said, "No, not really. I just wanted to finish up with the laundry; get the floors cleaned; head over to Target or Walmart to pick up the vacuum cleaner bags; and, then get started on the rest of the house. Other than that I don't have a lot to do." He just sort of smiled and said, "Oh, so you don't have much planned." and chuckled. I said it was only about 10 hours worth of work, and I really wanted to get the house back in shape. Anyway, we just came back to the house and I got busy.
After working for a little bit, I began to feel exhausted and realized I was starting to do too much, again. I laid down and napped for about an hour and then got up to head over to Target. I wanted to pick up a few things and was hoping they would have the vacuum cleaner bags, they didn't. I came back and swept the floor and then mopped, and it was much nicer. We then took off to go pick up the girls and while I was getting Jackie (with Stacy's help), Jason was picking up the meds. We then headed over to Walmart, and they had the bags! I was pretty happy, because otherwise we were going to have to order on line, and that meant another delay in cleaning the carpeted areas.
The rest of the night was fun and relaxed. The girls were doing their best to help me with dinner, and then spending the evening with Daddy. I really enjoy the times they are with him, and I think they do too. Now, for his appointments (told you I'd get back to it) - The first one was with his Nurse Practitioner, who does all the filling of his meds. It was a nice visit, and since she has moved down to the C5 area, it makes it a lot easier for us to get to her office. After that we went over to the other building where we ended up in the Dermatology area, it was closest, so we stopped there. I wanted to get a better feel for when Jason's next surgery was going to be, and up to that point we simply had no new information. I spoke with the scheduling nurse and then pulled in one of the other doctors and she got on the phone with the other departments and we finally had a closer date. Tentatively set for February 20. I told them that we need to start making some other plans, and that was a major aspect of the planning, so I needed to find out. Linda is planning on being down here around that same time, so we have to figure out where we are going to be and who is going to be going where. Anyway, it was nice to have a better idea, now we just have to hope it holds. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
