January 13, 2015

Another day with the girls doing a little better, but still far from being 100% of their normal selves. They both had temps of over 101 and we did end up taking them to the doctor's office. Apparently we are still doing the right things with them, we just wish we could get them to be feeling better faster. We kept them home from school and looks like tomorrow is going to be more of the same. The big difference is that they go back to their mom's place, and Linda and I are headed up to Livermore. We won't be able to tell how they are doing for five days. The good news is that they are progressively getting better, so we think they should get back to that 100% level soon.

Not much else going on today, other than the normal things we tend to do every day. About the only two things that would be classified as different would be taking the girls to the doctor's office and us packing for the trip. We plan on driving up to Livermore to check on some personal things and visit with some of our friends, and most importantly, spend some time with Sean and George. They are the two that get the least amount of time with us, and we feel that we need to figure out how to remedy that situation. Neither of them make much money, so regular travel just isn't a viable solution, at the moment, though I am sure we'll be able to come up with something, a little down the road.

We'll be leaving mid-morning, tomorrow and stopping at Linda's parents for a short visit. From there we'll drive straight up to Milpitas  where we plan to stop and have dinner (one of our favorite restaurants is in Milpitas, called La Milpa - wonderful Mexican food). While there we plan on having that dinner with Jason's Godparents, Steve and Yolanda and start with some catching up right there. From there we'll continue on to Livermore and check in at our hotel and get some sleep. The next day will begin with a visit to Sean, in San Francisco then George the next day and we'll just do our best to meet with as many people as we can. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Praying hard that the trip goes well and that you don't catch what the girls had!
    Psalms 139:4-6 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

  2. You're in the Lord's Hands. Praying for safe travels!!
    Psalms 139:7-10 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

  3. What amazing words of Scripture! Praying right now!
    Psalms 139:17-18 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
