June 19, 2015

Jason text'd me early this morning and let me know that they were talking about letting him come back home today. This was a good bit of news to wake up to, as I wasn't sure what was going to be going on. I had too wait for Joselyn to arrive, so that I could leave the dogs at the house, and Jason wouldn't be able to get up before noon anyway.

When Joselyn arrived, it was about 10:00 and I immediately loaded my bike into the van and headed over to the bike shop. I had made an appointment to get it tuned so all I had to do was drop it off and then I headed off to the  hospital. When I arrived at the hospital, Jason was watching television and simply waiting to get the final word from the doctor. About 10 minutes after I arrived the doctor walked in and we had a very good discussion about what happened; what Jason's condition was; and, whether or not Jason should be coming home. Everything was going great until we got to the "going-home" part. Jason was at the end of fighting off another infection and they recommended that Jason stay over the weekend. Not that he needed to stay, just that they thought it would be better for him to be in the hospital, because they didn't want to put me in a position of having to take care of him. We talked about what I've been doing over the past few years and the fact that we only lived a few minutes from the hospital, and then I asked the doctor what he would do, if it were he in the hospital and he said he would go home. Therefore we decided it was okay to come home.

We got home and the first thing he wanted to do was go through all his mail - he had a pretty good stack on the table. Next thing was to get a shower in. He hadn't taken a shower in about four days, and he was feeling kind of grungy. He is still taking one antibiotic, for the next few days and then he'll be finished with all the "new" meds he is taking, and will be back to his regular regimen. The rest of this evening was just go pick up my bike and then relax, so that 's what we did. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

    Isaiah 43:1-3a But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel...
