My new favorite worship song

or maybe you'd rather hear these awesome Camp Pendleton Marines sing it!  Oohrah!!
Days of Elijah by Marines


I'm thankful for beautiful grandkids; beautiful on the inside and outside!

On the Mend

Bill saw our family physician on Monday who pronounced him good to go - healing well and everything in a normal condition at this stage of healing after he tripped over a laptop cord and took a major hit to his forehead.  He still has a colorful eye and the 14 stitches will leave a scar above his brow, but we're told that will make him a more rugged-looking Marine.

Today he had a follow-up with his cardiologist who said his labs looked good, gave some advice on a supplement and will check with him again in six months.

14 Stitches

We were all ready to go to a birthday party for a friend last evening.  Bill went to the media center to put away his headphones, caught his foot on the cord to the laptop that I had left out after working on computers and down he went, hitting his forehead on the floor.  He cut quite a gash above his left eyebrow.  We are both blaming ourselves.

So we went to the ER instead of the party.  Bill told everyone at the ER he was missing birthday cake.  He got 14 stitches, 3 inside and 11 outside and is doing fine.  They took an MRI.  Everything looks good but we are to watch for any unwanted reactions over the next couple of weeks, for possible bleeding on the brain.  Stitches come out Saturday.  He's really swollen and the bruising is beginning.  He looks like he lost to Ali.  He will be aglow soon.  Say a prayer, OK?
