Home.... nothing like it! Watching TV all curled up on the sofa......visiting with friends......... the pets wanting to be loved on......... the feeling of your own bed......... sleeping late on Saturday......... the sound of your child about to throw up......... Wait... that wasn't suppose to happen !

But it did. Zach woke up Saturday not feeling well. I shot up in the bed yelling at him to get in the bathroom! It must have been a 24 hours bug, because by Sunday he was fine. Zach has bragging rights ~ and cashes in on them often ~ about how he never gets sick. The last time he threw up he was 4 yrs old and doesn't remember it.

Frank was happy to have gotten his "get out of jail" card from Little Rock. We were all so excited to be home. He enjoyed his Sat. morning doing his solitary errands in the wee morning hours. He loves getting up early and having that time. He went to the office, the garden to pick turnip greens and, of course, Starbucks. I think he surprised himself at how tired it made him. He slept the rest of the day. He ran fever all weekend and is having some N/V issues too. He's anxious to get his strength back and jump back into work.

We'll see Dr. Johnson here at West Clinic tomorrow and set up weekly labs. Then return to Little Rock around the 15th of Dec for a full work up. Until then, we'll pray that Frank continues to re cooperate as his body gets stronger each day. He didn't replace the pain patch to see how his body feels without anything since the procedures on the vertabrae. We are hopeful to notice a difference.

Psalm 27:14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
