July 17, 2014

Yesterday and today were both kind of quiet, and there really wasn't much going on. The girls swim lessons ended today, and Stacy was particularly excited about how much she has been able to accomplish. She can not only hold her breath much longer than before, she announced she can now do flips under water. Jackie on the other hand  was very happy to have the swim lessons come to an end. I think she was getting tired of being in the pool and forever having to get her face wet and sometimes under water. Perhaps in another year, or two, she will be better with the water, and it will become much more fun.

There were a couple of appointments for Jason, with one of them being with the Wound Care folks. That one was a little more exciting than usual, as we were able to get with the doctors (there were 3 of them there this time), and we discussed some of the future steps that we would like to explore, and it was agreed that we would see another treatment of lasing the wound and seeing if some of the excess tension on the skin can be relieved, which we hope will allow it to help close. They also discussed doing a couple of other things, so perhaps I'll get a chance to talk about those in a later blog.

Linda and I got to get out and see Jersey Boys, and enjoyed the movie, very much. It was a historical type movie, and it was done very well, so we felt like we won on two fronts. Then there was the music and both Linda and I enjoyed that as well, so heck I guess we had three fronts. Not much else going on right now, so I'll keep this post a little on the short side. Thank you, for continuing to provide support and prayers for all of us. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Jesus came and suffered in our place that all who believe might share eternity with Him! Praying as always!
    Isaiah 53:1-3 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
