Good Morning, Dear Friends!
I pray that your day is off to a good start, that your week has been productive, and that your mouth is filled with praises unto God for His blessings are many! Our week has been good here...busy...a lot of it spent on the road.
Sunday afternoon we rode up to Harrisonville with Amber. John and Tony visited with Amber's uncle while Amber and I attended a baby shower for her sister-in-law, Ashley. We had such a good time! The atmosphere was joyful, as were the people, and it was truly relaxing. Afterwards we visited with family...some of which we (John and Tony and I) hadn't seen in over 12 years! It was such a blessing to see what God has done in the hearts and lives of those who truly seek after Him! Amazing!!!
Monday was spent in Springfield. Tony had a morning appointment with the hand surgeon to see about getting the BB out of his finger, and Pat had her final a leg appointment in the afternoon. It was a very long, very hot day and I don't think any of us thought it was ever going to end. Pat was finally released from her doctor (she doesn't have to go back unless she has a problem) and Tony's surgery is scheduled for Friday. I don't know what time yet. They're supposed to call us Thursday afternoon and let us know. I just know we'll all be glad when it's over. The surgery will be more complicated than what we thought it would be. The BB is buried in the sheath that the tendons run through and the tendons are damaged. They will have to be repaired and that will require microscopic surgery in a surgical suite. Please pray that all goes well. Tony is pretty nervous about the whole procedure.
Yesterday was spent cleaning house and preparing for a visit from our youngest daughter and her friend, Heather. They will be in town shortly, and plan on spending the day at Prairie State Park...visiting the nature center, hiking the trails, etc. Their plan is to spend the night here before returning to the city tomorrow. It will be nice to see them both and I look forward to their visit.
Well, I guess that's it for now. I need to get busy. I want to get the bread machine going early and make my plans for the rest of the day. You all have a great day and I'll be with you again soon! Take care and God bless!
All My Love,
