Hi Ho, Hi Ho

Got up around 5 am this morning to get gimpy to work by 7. It's been a while since I had to do that on a regular basis. Looks like I will be setting up my laptop in the company conference room for a week or two.
He is doing pretty well. Went to that basketball game on Saturday. Went to church Sunday morning. That was pretty much all he could handle, though. He is having trouble sleeping again. I think his body is just too wired. It resists anything that wants to try and slow it down. He has always been a man of action. Can't sit still for very long. So I guess the body is in protest mode. Wants to be doing stuff.
I would love for him to be able to just take a couple weeks off and be able to rest, but that doesn't seem to be acceptable. Friends have expressed a desire to see Al's boss have an up close and personal experience with cancer. We do not wish that on anyone - no matter how unfair or unfeeling they may be. But I wouldn't mind him coming to an understanding of how Christ would handle the situation.
Others have said we should sue. While we may or may not have grounds, we want to go through all the right channels and give them every opportunity to do what is right and fair. We want to be able to walk away saying we have no regrets. That we can look our Lord in the eye and not feel ashamed of anything we did or said.
Don't think we did not already think all the things that others are expressing...we are just trying to be patient and waiting upon the Lord. If you give yourself time to think and pray before saying and acting...He usually gives you a check in your spirit.
Pray for us to continue to look to our Heavenly Father for the right way to handle each and every situation, every day. It is the only way we will be able to make our way through this maze of pain, anger, jealousy, frustration, injustice, legal matters, conflicts and so much more, with the grace and compassion for others that Jesus showed to those who mistreated him.
Pray for those who do not have the hope of eternity spent in a new body, with the Lord of the Universe.
