Sunday slump

After the fun night with the bonfire and a couple of days just resting, Al got to try to go to the gun show again on Saturday. Line was too long AGAIN. He and Steve and Justin and Joey had a good time anyway. Going to breakfast, stopping at a few gun shops to look around.
Then Saturday afternoon and evening we drove to the deer lease outside Whitney. Had a great time sitting around talking to our good friends, JB and Vicki. Our daughter, Kim was there with her husband and 4 boys. The oldest demonstrated his fire starting skills on a campfire. Way to go Chance! Then we cooked hot dogs and s'mores. Seems to be the theme for 2009!
Al did go to the stand for a little while, until his leg started hurting. Before the evening was over, he was feeling pretty lousy. Not really sure what, just not feeling good.
Sunday morning he woke up hoarse and feeling even worse. I guess it was all that fresh air. So, once again, we missed church.
As it happened, he was scheduled to get a breathing treatment at Baylor this morning. Then he was going to go to the family doctor. We weren't sure if they would give him the treatment while he was sick. They did. I called just a little while ago. He sounded better than he has in months! He said he felt great. Praise God.
I'll take it - for as long as it lasts. Which may only be until he hits the door at home this afternoon, but it's a start. We thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers. We are expecting miracles this year.

Karen, we tried to go to the gun show Saturday too! We saw that line and said 'forget it'! That was crazy. Went to Firewheel and shopped instead. :) Enjoying your blog and keeping you guys in my prayers.
