Memorial Day 2013

It's Memorial Day.  We took Dad to the Clovis Cemetary today.  The 450 large American Flags waving all around the cemetary is magestic.  We just took it all in for awhile as we gazed at the gravestones of our family members who have already passed.  My Dad saw the gravestone for my Mom for the first time today.  He was ready and I know it was hard for him but he was glad we went.  We are thankful for all those who have served in our nation's military and for those who lost their lives in defense of our nation and for the freedoms we enjoy!  May God bless America. 

Colby Update

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  I think it really fits in Colby's case.  We just returned from being with Colby in his home with Mommy and Daddy.  I'm so glad I caught Colby laughing and smiling.  It is so heart warming to see him more himself.  He's healing well.  His main discomfort now seems to be the itching.  His Mommy and Daddy are doing everything possible to keep him comfortable.  Prayers are still needed but praises are plentiful!  I can't thank you enough if you have been following Colby's progress and are praying for him.

Grandma and Grandpa Time!

Yesterday I got to spend time with our grandsons, Ty and Carter.  We had so much fun.  Grandpa got to spend a few minutes between appointments looking for Waldo in the fun book, Where's Waldo.  The big flashlights added to the fun.  I loved hearing Carter say, Where's Waldo over and over!!! 

I asked Ty what he wanted to do while they were here for the day.  He helped me make the list.  We only missed doing 2 things on the list.  We simply ran out of time. 

It made for a busy but memorable time with the grandkids!!  Seriously, I loved it!

We are so thankful to report that Colby had his 3rd surgery and the Doctors are very optimistic that his skin grafts will take and he will have no restrictions of mobility.  This precious family has finally been reunited since the accident.  We are so thankful to the Lord for his mercy and grace!

A Great Day at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo

We had a wonderful time with our grandsons at the Sea Lion Cove at the Chaffee Zoo.  We are so glad we bought a Membership so that we can take the grandkids again and again to the Zoo.  This was a little diversion for them and us while their little brother, Colby is recovering from his burns. 

Thanks for all your prayers on Colby's behalf.

Update on our grandson, Colby

Our grandson, Colby, is playing in the playroom at the hospital in this photo.  This was a very good day when we got to see him playing and interacting with us.  We were so encouraged by this! 

Colby is such a trooper!  He's been through a lot with his burns but he and his parents are hanging in there!  We have a lot to be thankful for.  Thanks to all who have been praying for Colby!  We have all seen the Lord's loving care, support and strength.  "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint".  Isaiah 40:31
