Today is one of those days where you just have to take situations, one thing at a time. I had gotten up and was actually planning on getting out and going for a bike ride. About 20 minutes prior to getting ready Jason received a phone call from his primary doctor, who had heard about the situation with Jason's eyes (from his Wound Care visit yesterday). Well, this ended up turning into an eye appointment with Ophthalmology and we needed to get Jason in to the hospital sometime this morning. Okay, so now I need to call the ambulance to get them over to pick up Jason (and me), and that was end of  my ride. On a Friday you don't want to be out on the street, on a bicycle, if you don't have to, after about 14:00 (2pm). People are more interested in getting home and getting the weekend started, and really become rude, discourteous drivers, which translates to dangerous drivers, especially for those on bikes... so I didn't go.

Jason's appointment was actually kind of fast. They were interested in working with him, and the doctor he had, had a great bedside manner. She was both efficient as well as effective. She did an exam of his eyes; made a couple quick tests; consulted with two other specialists and we were out of there in less than an hour, along with the meds Jason is now taking. Well, most of the meds, I had to go back later to pick up one more in the afternoon, and that was simply walk in and it was handed to me and I walked out, maybe 30 seconds. The cool thing about the appointment being short was that we were able to get back to the house before Linda had to leave for Stacy's school play. Stacy had asked both of us to attend, but understood that I had to stay with Daddy, so Grandma (Linda) had to go without Grandpa (me). Linda said it was a fun play, especially for all the kids watching, and at the end there were a bunch of jelly beans given out to the kids (Here comes the sugar highs).

 The rest of the day was primarily spent at the house, with the exception of a couple of errands that I had to take care of, for Jason and for Linda and I. We did get out to Costco and purchased a few things, and that was pretty much the typical Friday-Costco trip. Lots of people moving as fast as they could to get ready for the weekend, and even some getting ready for Easter. Bottom line is that we were in and out of Costco in about an hour, and then came back to the house.

Tomorrow I am going to once again, attempt to go for a bike ride, and if I can get out of the house early enough I can ride the roads much more safely, with far fewer vehicles on the road. I guess I'll have to wait and see how it goes, but then I'm getting used to that. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support you all have been sending. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Hope you're having a good weekend!
    Even during the hardest trials of life the Lord is always there! Praying!
    Habakkuk 3:17-19 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places...
