We are thankful that we just got some time away. We left Friday afternoon, drove about 3 1/2 hours to Jim's brother's house Tim's and spent the night with him and his wife Lisa. Had a great visit, then took off in the morning and drove about 3 1/2 more hours following them to Jim's sister's house Kim's to have Thanksgiving dinner with the whole Fry family. We had a great time getting to see the family and Dustin our boy that lived with us for four years also drove up from Branson to be with us for Thanksgiving at Kim's too. It was good to see him. This morning Jim and I got up and finally was able to get Jim to St. Louis to see his first Ram's game. We had a great time, but it would have been a better time if they would have scored that touchdown when they were on the 1 yard line with only 30 seconds left of the game. But it wasn't meant to be they lost 19-24. Bummer! But we are still thankful Jim finally got to a game, after all he has been a Rams fan since he was a little boy. Wait a minute isn't he still a little boy? Oh, I guess not, he is an old man now. Anyway it seems like that because this last year he has been fighting the pneumonia and bronchitis so much.
We are thankful to find out that his lungs in a ct scan were clear and normal, so he is on prednizone, 3 different asthma medicines, and an antibiotic, trying to get rid of his cough and we are waiting for a blood test that they sent away testing for allergies. The pulmonary specialist is pretty sure it is allergy related (the cow barn?). Please pray that we can find out what to do to keep it under control, he is tired of being tired from all the coughing. But very thankful that his lungs were clear.
We are also thankful that the boys went home Wednesday night the 21st at 4:00 and their parents will take them to school tomorrow morning the 26th and we didn't get a single phone call while we were off. Very thankful for that!!!!!
Now please pray for us this week, as the boys get back into our routine, that things go well and we are able to continue feeling refreshed after time off. Not that we don't love the boys we work with and enjoy working with them but it is good to have the time off occasionally.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and also have a lot to be thankful for.
We are also thankful for Jesus being the reason we are getting ready to celebrate the next season coming up. Thank you Jesus!
