Since with new wonders of Facebook, my blog now appears in my profile when I update, I just wanted to thank you all for being on my friends list. Many of you have joined recently and I haven’t been able to personally write you, but I thank you for being in my circle of friends and family.
I do have some prayer requests at this time.
- Roger continues to heal from his gall bladder surgery, but has hit some difficulty here and there along the way. He had to have a more complicated surgery than normal due to a cyst he had, and I believe that is why it’s taken longer to heal. The doctors have also been watching another cyst he had in another area of his pancreas, but it was not prudent to work on that at the same time as the surgery so they were waiting and watching. He still had it as of last week at his CT scan, so they will be watching it another 6 weeks. If it is not gone they most likely will have to do another surgery to drain it. This also may explain why Roger has had a slower recup time and extra nausea and pain. Lately, however, he has had more good days than bad so we are grateful to God for that.
- We are in prayer that he can resume work slowly and get back to normal. Whether he has to have a second surgery will determine how fast that will happen. We would also like him to get home SOON (he’s at his mom and dad’s house) but with Ryan being rough in his affection for his daddy we were afraid to have him stay at home yet all the time. Ryan talks to him every day on the phone and gets so excited when he gets to see him sometimes!
- My paperwork load has been very heavy but I’m trying to get through one project at a time. It has been harder to keep up on my paid transcription work with the hundreds of pages I’ve recently had to scan and fax and mail and drop off to various agencies lately with different updates the agencies had to do on our kids, etc. They all came up at once, and multiplied with just trying to keep up on calls in regard to hospital bills and just keeping up the checkbook and filing and all the items one has to do, it has been a little overwhelming!! I am now trying to get ahead of my transcription a little this week, and am hopeful the largest part of the paperwork elephant is now behind me. There are still some things left to do though, and I’m trying to keep track of them.
- Christopher’s placement. We had a meeting at Christopher’s school Friday about how to help him progress more and learn more and learn to self-regulate with some aggressive behaviors and his not sleeping still, often. We all agreed that we need to contact the autism school I mentioned in my last post, in Florida, and I will be doing that this weekend. I pray the Lord’s will will be done in that area, and that we know the best thing to do for Christopher.
Thank you for prayers. We are all just trying to get through all this the best we can, and still enjoy the spring with the blossoms, and enjoy the family when we can all get together and communicate as much as we can. Rog and I had our first Facebook chat last night! That was fun 🙂 And I’m going over there and visiting a few times a week – Friday after my school has become a tradition.
I only have 3 classes left of my first class in 23 years. I still have 4 papers to write to catch up on my homework, but I will do it. It’s a good thing I love to write. Then I have a final paper to do along with a power point that I plan to do on music and religion (it’s a religion class). Next semester I am taking two online classes, first summer session computer introduction, and second summer session my first remedial algebra class. So I shall continue to be busy.
