Wednesday 5/17

Jason slept into 10:30, drank OJ while I got ready to head out to counseling in Silver Spring and a 5 mile walk round trip on a very pretty day.

Getting back to the room, Jason needed to get dressed. He now needs a belt to keep his pants up. Jason tried to wear his Skin belt but it caught his belly stitches so he had to take it off. Jodi and he spent time on the same Scotland page checking out the sights. After Jason decided to go to Macaroni Grill for an afternoon lunch and I thought this maybe my last time to eat here. I ate the wonderful warm herb bread with butter while Jason dipped his in olive oil.

Returning to Mologne we had a quiet afternoon until I left for Quixote Center and liturgy. The circle was small with 5 members present. The readings for the coming Sunday (which we use as our reflections) are the famous passages about God is Love (1 John 4:7-10). I had brought a candle for each member of the circle and said, "You have been the Light of God's Love for me in a personally dark time spiritually. The Love of this circle has sustained me. I will always hold you in my heart. When you light the candle do say a prayer of healing for Jason and I."

When I got back to the room, Jason was getting ready to watch Top Chef. We thought this was the end of the show but it was an elimination round and the end is next week. Humph. They cooked in a Las Vegas hotel for different "players" including actual pokerplayers who liked chicken wings best! (good tasting finger food). The chef who won likes to play poker and made food he likes!

Lights out at 11 as Jason must get up at 6:45 for his "Wound vac check to see if can come off" appointment.

May all of you know that you are of God who is Love in the friendship and compassion you have shown to Jason and all our family. Blessings.

Katy.....It's been a pleasure to read your blog daily even though you and Jason have gone through tough times. You surely must write a book about this that may help other parents and patients.
The faith you've had has been uplifting to us, the readers, and
would sustain others in your situation. You have such a wonderful way with words that I know the book would be cathartic
for you and an inspiration to others. Go home and take care of yourself. Your partner in prayer, Dorothy Franks, E. Texas
