May 7, 2017

Another exciting update for the blog... Jason is doing well and going in to Urology on Tuesday, for his follow up from the surgery. He has been doing very well and on top of that the other wounds are closing up nicely. He had four small wounds prior to the surgery and now he is back down to two, with one of those looking like it will close pretty soon as well.

Jason spends most of his days resting in bed, as he should, though he has been out to fix dinner and enjoys telling the girls their bedtime stories. Actually, this is one of those areas where he really excels. I still think he should take up writing, as he has quite a good imagination and does a great job of telling his stories to the girls. He bases his stories on either a fantasy story he is familiar with or something that happened to  him, somewhere along the line of his own life. Bottom line is that the girls really love listening to him.

Today was an interesting day, especially for Southern California. It started to rain yesterday, and has not stopped. The weather outside is cold, and the Men's Retreat, from our church had snow this morning... 4+ inches. I had hoped to get some time out on the bike, but unfortunately that didn't happen. Perhaps I'll be able to over the next couple of days, or maybe into next week sometime. The challenge there is that we're coming into a very busy time for the entire family, and I may not get any "extra" time to just go for a ride, until sometime into July.

Next month we're supposed to be headed to Colorado, to get Jason a new wearable. We're waiting to hear what the final plans are so we can get some schedules coordinated. My guess is that we'll be out there for a week and then get back here. Once that happens, I am hopeful that Jason will be able to get back to the gym. The few times we went I could see a subtle improvement in his attitude and I can only attribute that to the fact that he enjoyed going there, very much.

The girls have been with us for almost two-weeks now, due to a schedule need from their mother. As far as we're concerned they could stay with us all the time, but that isn't going to happen anytime soon. Jason is quite a good dad for them, and they definitely show that they like it, and they love their daddy. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Thanks for the update. Glad things are going well! We've had record breaking rain the last two years in a row. Oh joy!
    Know that I'm here praying!
    Psalms 143:8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.

  2. Praying right now!
    Isaiah 25:8-9 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; ... And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

  3. Oh what comforting words! Continuing to pray!
    Deuteronomy 31:6, 8 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. (8) And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
