October 12, 2014

Better day for me, today. It started out a little bumpy and I nearly went in to the ER, as I was feeling very poorly. Fortunately, I began feeling a bit better once I started moving around a little, though it wasn't until several hours later than I felt significantly better. I am still focusing on clear liquids, as my stomach is not back to its normal self, and I figure I'll need to take it easy tomorrow, then I'll be as good as new.

Jason had a day of spending most of his time in bed, and that was what I was hoping for, yet I was a bit disappointed to see the wounds on the left have expanded some. It is very frustrating to see this when the treatment is basically the same, with regular visits to Wound Care, and activity has been kept to a minimum. The right side, however, seems to be doing better and that is a good thing, I'd just like to see the left side close up. Otherwise, Jason is doing well and in very good and positive spirits. There are no appointments tomorrow, as the government recognizes Columbus Day as a holiday, so we will simply be staying at home, other than a trip to the store (Costco?) to pick up some needed supplies. We also get the girls tomorrow, and they will be with us for the next couple of weeks. Their mother is going into the hospital and will need some recovery time. She has asked Jason to take care of them during that period.

Not much else to blog about today - Linda stayed busy with general clean up and organizational stuff, so that we can get rid of some old boxes of stuff. She has been working some extra duty, with me being sick, so I appreciate all she has done. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Pedialyte oral rehydration solution is great for adults as well as kids, and helps replace lost electrolytes. Hugs as you heal, and hoping that you are feeling better. Ease back into solid food...soups are good and COOKED veggies only for a while...no raw for several more days. Keep us posted.

  2. Sorry the left side isn't healing as well.
    So much packed into 3 verses! What amazing comfort! Praying!
    Psalms 62:5-8 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
