Day began very early, with Jackie having a bad dream and Linda and I getting up at about 01:00 to comfort her. Linda stayed in Jackie's bed so that I could go back to bed, and then a few hours later Stacy had a bad dream and came up to our room. This time though, I had already gotten up (it was after 06:30) and I was hoping to let Linda sleep just a little bit longer... it didn't happen. Since it was close to the time they normally get up anyway, we just began the day. I made them breakfast and fixed their lunches while Linda got them dressed, and by 07:40 we were on our way to their school. Jackie's rash seems to have just about gone completely away at this time, so we were okay with her going to school - but more on that later.
When we were back at the house I made myself something to eat (Jason had been given breakfast earlier) and Linda was preparing her morning meal. Jason and I were going in to Balboa for a visit, and to pick up a couple of things that we were out of, like gloves. While there Jason stopped in to visit with the folks at PT and get a good working over on his shoulders. It was good to see the folks there, as it seems like we haven't been there in a long time. We also visited with a few other people in the C5 clinic and over all it was a well spent morning. On top of that Jason did have one appointment, and it was also right there in C5.
We were on our way back home before 11:15 - and I feel I should describe the parking lot as we first arrived. It was packed! I don't remember ever seeing that many people in the C5 parking area, and it did make me wonder if they were all C5 patients. You're supposed to have a parking permit to use that area, and like I said, it was the most I can remember ever seeing there. There were a couple of parking spots left, though, so it wasn't too bad.
The rest of the day was pretty relaxed and when I went to go pick up Jackie, from school it looked like maybe some of the rash had come back. We're thinking it is probably a heat rash, and we just need to make sure she stays calm and cool. Jason called the doctor's office and they said to just keep an eye on it, "... for a day or so..." and if it doesn't go away call back in, so that's what we're doing. Because of the busy nature of our last couple of days both Linda and I are kind of tired and we'll be going to bed a little on the early side tonight. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
