I'm feeling much better today, and I can say that after a good rest tonight, I should be back to just about 100%. That means I might even want to see if I can get back on the bike, and get going again. I am so glad to have the awful feeling go away - well, at least most of it. The doctors said that the numbness may linger on for a while longer or may not go away at all. I guess they're hedging their bets, so-to-speak, because they aren't sure what it is. You just got'a love the world of medicine.

Today was a nice relaxed day, with Jason and I going in to Balboa Hospital to get a prescription going and to visit with a couple of the medical teams. There is going to be another procedure done on Jason, on the 20th, and he wanted to be sure he had all the right things taken care of. He could have done it via the phone, but being there, face-to-face is always better, if you have the time. The funny part is that we got to the base and realized we had transferred all the placards to the truck, and we were now in the van. I had to go up to the drop off area and let Jason out, and then go park in the regular parking. That's where it got really strange... Traffic has slowed significantly in the past few weeks, and there were a couple of regular parking places available, relatively close to where Jason was dropped. I was totally surprised, and VERY happy.

The visit didn't take too long, and we were back home before 11:00. Jason was hungry, so I fixed him something to eat and then went up to take care of my email. Linda saw us come back early, and that allowed her to take care of a few other things, and also to get some needed rest. She has been working too hard lately, and now that we have the girls for the next couple of weeks she will be working even more. The girls wouldn't be back at the house for several hours, and I had stuff to keep me busy so I told her she could get some rest, and she did (I was happy).

The rest of the day was relaxed, very much the way we needed it to be. Joselyn came over for a visit, and to catch up with Linda, and then even went with Linda to pick up the girls. Tonight I fixed a nice dinner for everybody and then we finished the day by watching the Giants win the Pendant for the NLCS. I have to admit, I thought St. Louis was going to take this one, but Linda told me that the Giants would win, then the boys came through in the end. Stacy even informed me that she still wants to be a cheer leader for the Giants, and how come they don't already have some. A few years down the road and I guess we'll be petitioning the Giants to allow her to become their official cheer leader. The game ended real close to their regular bed time, so it all worked out very well. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Oh the comfort you can find in the book of Isaiah! Praying so right now!
    Isaiah 25:8-9 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
