More John News!

The roller coaster ride continues...

Yesterday John went to court to deal with the legal side of the motorcycle accident. It turned out really well, and with Colorado being a no fault state, someone had to get a ticket. John got one and had to pay a fine, but it was the lowest possible charge. Yay! That part is over.

So we get home last night and John has chills and a fever. It turns out that the wound on his leg is now infected. Yikes! We see surgeon today at 3.

Up and down and around and around. Some good news, some bad news.

I've never been a roller coaster fan, but I've never said no to one either. Walking through fear is important. While on a roller coaster, some people hold on for their lives and scream. Others throw up their hands in the air and enjoy the thrill. Still others throw up.

Where am I? My hands aren't up the air, I'll tell you that. But I don't have white knuckles either and I'm not searching for a regurgitation receptacle.

So I guess I am the OTHER type of roller coaster rider. I am just waiting until it's over. And it will be. God is faithful no matter what the carnival ride may be!

Never a dull moment is there?

Is this the excitement John was looking for sans the motorcycle? Somehow I think not!

Praying for you both. I know John is the patient but you'd trade places with him if you could.

((((h))))) Here's to more exciting adventures in the future. Have you ever considered a motor home? But keep your condo _we'd like you to be close by.

Sometimes the best part of the roller coaster is the feeling you have when you get off and walk around on your own two feet again. That is in your future, dear one. Or maybe you got off the roller coaster when John got home from the hospial, and now you've wandered over to the tilt-a-whirl. A different kind of adventure. Have some cotton candy while you're in this carnival of life! I'm praying for you!
