November 16, 2015

We came home a little earlier than originally planned, due to a message we received from Jason. Apparently he was experiencing some difficulties with the catheter, again, and this time he was ahead of the discomfort. He wanted to go into Camp Pendleton Hospital and get it corrected. I think he would really rather have gone into Balboa, where they are much more familiar with him, and would have been able to address anything else that might have come up. As it was, nothing else did come up so he just had to deal with the ER staff again.

He was at Camp Pendleton when Linda and I pulled into the driveway, and back at the house about an hour, or so, later. He was wanting a shower and dressing change, so we got that knocked out, right away, and then he was much more comfortable, all the way around. As it was, Linda and I were very grateful for the help Jon and his wife Katie provided. The report back from Stacy and Jackie was good, and we were very happy and pleased about that. Loretta came in and took over for Jon and Katie, on Sunday, and took the girls to school this morning. She also helped with a couple other things around the house, and patio, so we felt that we were very fortunate for all the coverage we were able to secure.

Today, Linda and I picked up the girls, from the bus stop, once they were dropped off. They were very happy to see us, and both of them talked steadily for the next several minutes. The great part was that in the process of them doing the complete update, we got to find out about things going on at the school, as well as how the weekend went. We were very pleased to hear that they liked Jon and Katie, and their son Travis.

The rest of the day, today, went rather smoothly, and we were able to get caught up on some of the things going on, and some of the things we're getting more and more involved with. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Sorry your getaway was cut short. Glad that you were comfortable with those helping Jason while you were going!
    Call upon the Lord! He hears! He answers according to His Will. Lifting up prayer to the Only one who can answer!
    Lamentations 3:55-58 I called upon thy name, O LORD, out of the low dungeon. Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my breathing, at my cry. Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not. O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life.

  3. The Lord is holding your hand right now! Praying hard!
    Psalms 73:23-26 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
