April 20, 2017

I know some (all?) of you are wondering what happened with Jason's surgery, yesterday. Well, it was a little more complicated than initially expected, by the good doctor, but all was taken care of. It was all good news and after five hours of surgery, Jason was resting comfortably in his hospital room. He is in good spirits and we are expecting him to be back out of the hospital in a week (7-days) and then it is a matter of completing the healing.

All of his wounds are doing well and it looks like they want Jason back in Colorado to get a new prosthetic device, which will be yet another positive step for his mobility. All-in-all it has been a very positive past couple of days... except for the dogs. They are besides themselves wondering what happened to their master. They keep looking for him and don't understand why he isn't home.

We, Linda and I, are looking to arrange it so that we can stay closer to the hospital, for the next couple of days, and thus have the dogs closer as well. We want to do this through the weekend and maybe for the entire week. A great deal has to do with the girls and their schedules with school. I guess we could get up at 05:00 to get them to school... ;-) Okay, maybe not. Anyway, right now we are all feeling pretty good about the future. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  2. Not surprising that it would be more complicated than they thought but so glad that it went well and things are moving ahead!
    God answers prayers in His own way and in His own time. We may not see it, but He's always working. Praying!
    Psalms 40:16-17 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

  3. May the Lord give you comfort and wrap His loving arms around you! Praying right now!
    2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
