September 30, 2014

Today was a good day, though a bit of a challenging one. We got the girls off to school just fine, and then came back to the house. I had the colonoscopy scheduled for this afternoon, so I continued to not eat - the toughest time was when I was making the girls lunches. I managed to deal with it, though, and focused on other things.

My appointment was at 13:00 (1pm) and Jason also had an appointment at 13:40 (1:40pm), so Linda took both of us to the VA. This is where it got to be a little challenging. Jason's appointment should have allowed for plenty of time to have whatever they were doing, taken care of, and still be able to get back to the girls when they got out of school. My situation was much more relaxed, since I was going to be in recovery for a little while, Linda could take Jason back to the house and then come get me.

Well, as it turned out, my appointment was delayed a little, as most of them are with the VA, and this was no big deal. Jason's, on the other hand, was also being delayed. This means he is just sitting in his chair, and THAT is a big deal. He sat there for almost two hours and they were still not ready to see him. The girls were getting out of school soon, so Jason simply decided to cancel his appointment and he and Linda drove back to the house, to drop Jason off and to pick up the girls from school. Once they were all settled at the house, Joselyn was there, and she was willing to help where ever it was needed. Linda came back to pick me up, as I was done now and ready to leave the recovery area. Tomorrow, I will be letting somebody know that they seriously screwed up.

The rest of the evening was fine; the girls were all happy and having a good time; I managed to get through the rest of the recovery, which took about two hours; and, Jason was resting nicely in his bed. I am hopeful that we can get everything in order, as it should be, for Jason, because the idea is to have the wounds heal, and their actions could be detrimental. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Glad you made it through okay. Had one myself and as long as I can sleep through it, it's not so bad. Praying for good news!
    That really stinks that Jason had to sit there for so long! That should NEVER happen!
    Praying for all of you!!
    Psalms 5:1-3 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

  2. What a comfort these words bring! Praying!
    Psalms 5:11-12 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
