Thank God It's Friday!

Friday, May 15, 2009

I'm happy it's Friday because the Colonel will be home tonight!  I've been quite busy this week but wanted to take some time out to ask you all to please continue to pray for the Colonel.   

He called me yesterday morning, quite annoyed AT ME because I insisted he follow up with the doctor on Ft. Dix as we were INSTRUCTED to do from the Emergency Room physician on Sunday.  

Why was he annoyed at me?  
Because he said the doctor took a scalpel and proceeded to open up his wound to look inside to make sure there were no abscesses, AGAIN.  
He said his knee was feeling better but that was 
BEFORE he was stabbed in the knee AGAIN, 
only by a different doctor.  

But seriously, the doctor said it didn't look too good and if it doesn't get any better by next week he may have to have surgery to clear out the infection. 
So if you all could pray for his knee, that would be great!
And don't worry, he's not annoyed at me anymore!

I've been busy planning our pastor's farewell banquet.  I was out of the house most of the day yesterday working on the banquet, talking with the caterer, etc.  
I did manage to have lunch at Panera Bread with my friend Olga.  
She had never been there before!  She loves it now! 

Lots to do, but I love planning events like this.

 I'll be back tomorrow with Scripture Saturday!

  9. I'm praying for his knee!!! I know Brian has been walking on a broken ankle in Iraq, they said they couldnt fix it til he was state side!
    My hubby leaves Iraq in about 49 more days! Woohoo, we have a year of this deployment in already! (with reservesit ends up being about 15 months total that he is gone!) Are you active duty?

  10. We will pray for your hubby and just tell him that you are just looking out for his health.
    God bless.

  11. oh wow, he has a neat job! Do you get to see him much? Brian went to Fort Dix both deployments, training there before heading to Iraq! Matter of fact, he will be back there in July!!!

  19. My hubby used to get annoyed at doctor's visits and follow up visits, until he was diagnosed with prostrate cancer. Now he bugs me about my visits which I beginning to do. Matter of fact I beat him in scheduling my physical ahead of his! I will pray for your hubby. May you have a blessed weekend!

  20. So sorry to hear about your hubby's knee. I will keep praying for him. And isn't it funny that husbands don't like to follow doctor's instructions!!
