Quiet Sunday - Day 6

Today started a bit rough for us but ended well. This morning we went to the clinic for our daily checkup. We got out in time to get to church. We found a wonderful church just outside of Houston called Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church Unfortunately, Marie got sick again so we didn't get a chance to fellowship with them. Pastor Gene Franklin and his congregation were very friendly and we met Dr. Shormann and his family. Our kids do Saxon Math and Physics so we have purchased instructional CDs from Dive Into Math and Science The CDs are great. Dr. Shormann explains the lessons well and is very popular with my kids so this was a big deal.

I got Marie home and called the doctor. They had me give Marie 1 cc of Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate (Decadron) via her catheter. Marie started feeling better and I went out to clean the car. No jokes this time. Once is funny but four times including once in the car and once on the side of the road is not. The vomiting is a result of the swelling in her brain. Decadron is a steroid that reduces the swelling i.e., oedema.

We continue to know God is in control and He will do whatever pleases Him.

Tara mentioned that some folks had asked about a mailing address so here it is.

When Grandma wrote her comment, there is a word missing. The missing word is "g-i-r-l." I have to spell it out like that because if I don't, the computer automatically blocks it out. It's done this before, and also blocks out the words "f a t a l, and b o y." Guess you have something to fix once you get home.

Oh, and Grandma would like to ask if she should go to the optometrist the next time she needs her cholesterol checked. :)

By the way, both today's comment and yesterday's both say "Day 5." It might confuse people.

Whew...glad that I've gotten all those logistics worked out.

Love you both,

I'm sorry you had a tough time today. May you both know the depth and care of God's love.

We enjoyed having Stefan over to "chase electrons" (Doug's phrase) with Daniel.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know the details of how you are doing.
