Sarah's 17th Birthday

Sarah loves rock climbing and bouldering.  Unfortunately, Inner Peaks is the only indoor facility that we now of and they are 35-45 minutes away.  But it has become a birthday tradition for of to some extent.  So yesterday we took her along with Daniel and Steven, a friend from Gavel Club an Engineering this year.  Sarah had a free climbing and gear since it was her bday and the boys paid their own way so it was really inexpensive in the long run.  All we did was drive them and feed them.

17 years ago, on a Sunday much like yesterday, a little after the morning church services were over, Sarah Katherine Gibson made her debut.    She has been such a joy to raise.  Yes we have had our difficulties like all parents do but all in all we have been so blessed to have the privilege of raising her. 

Happy Birthday Sarah!

Here are some photos of the day.

No real improvement with pinched nerve

Visit to the Dr yesterday was not encouraging. He said when I fell out of bed 12 days ago it really set me back.  I go back on Thursday and if things aren't better I'm probably headed next to a neurosurgeon.  Please continue to pray.  I'm in constant pain and getting very discouraged.

If it's not one thing it's another

Last night I fell out of bed and hit my head, jaw, right arm and reinjured my pinched nerve which had been on the mend.  The look on Dr Halls face when I told him what had happened was not good.  This may be a major setback  and he told David to watch for signs of a concussion.

This is going on 6 weeks that I can't do much of anything.  I can't drive, cook, crochet, or even fold laundry.  I'm starting to loose hope in ever getting better.   I'm seeing my family doc on Monday about the discoloration on my face.  Today it does appear lighter and the bruising around my eyes is less and my right eye is not as droopy as it has been.   There is so much going on that it's becoming very hard to have any positive outlook or thoughts.

No job in sight for David but Dole did ask him to apply for a job. 

Please continue to keep us in your pr@yers,
