What a Weekend!

Diana's dog Sugar had a gran mal seizure last weekend. She's a 12 year old West Highland Terrier and she's never had a seizure before. Diana had gone out with friends so Sugar came to our room and was sleeping on our bed. It was 2:30 in the morning and man, was I scared! Freaked me out to wake up to that! After a visit to the vet, we learned that her platelets were high, possibly resulting in blood clots that may have caused the seizure. She's home and has been improving daily.

Chuck got word that he didn't get the one job he was hoping for. It's been a month now since he left Centurylink, a month since they closed his department. After 19 years he's now looking for a new job. He had applied for a management position at C-link but learned over the weekend that he didn't get it. So, back to the drawing board. He's on unemployment and taking classes at the Work Source office to help meet the unemployment requirements. So far, headed into month 2, all our bills are paid and we're doing okay. We're trusting the Lord, He's our provider and we know He'll be faithful to meet our needs.

Beth had her Special Olympics bowling tournament last Sunday and she won a Silver Medal! I forget each year, about the hundreds of people that pack that bowling alley. It's complete chaos... until the games begin! The 'kids' have so much fun and the families are all there cheering them on. It really is a fun event!

Some tough stuff in there - although lovely to hear about Beth's achievements. Take care.
