Roger's Home!!!!

Whew! What a week! The good news is that Roger's home! He's going to be on 10 days on antibiotics and pain medicines as well as anti-nausea medications. He's doing better but his leg is still very sore and swollen. I laid my hand on his leg this morning just to see how hot it is and I left an imprint of my hand in the swollen tissues. Kinda yucky, huh? Today is Becca's 14th birthday! I am planning to rush out and spend the afternoon with her doing some birthday present shopping. I feel bad that I haven't had the time to shop for her this week but I have the feeling she understands! I told her that I will take her anywhere she wants to shop and she said, "Even the mall?" I cheerfully said, "Yes!" although I would really rather just go to the local Kohl's department store. However, the mall seems to be a young teenage girl's dream place to shop so we're off as soon as I get lunch finished! Roger's all settled with his leg up, the dog at his side and Harmony the cat nestled on the foot stool. He didn't make it to church this morning and he was supposed to run the sound booth tonight but will not be able to do that this week. Usually Roger "builds" a beautiful birthday cake for each child's birthday but Becca wants cheesecake so this is a very good thing since I didn't want to have Roger work on decorating it this year since he has been so sick. (I have the feeling that he would give it a good try!!) The local Marsh grocery store will be happy to sell us a delicious cheesecake for the occasion! Since Becca is now 14, I have decided to allow her to have some make up! Please know that this girl will NOT be painted up but just some light make up to accentuate her eyes! So I am going to buy her some makeup today as well! Have a lovely day. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers and comments. They meant so much to us and Roger was VERY touched! You are a blessing to us!! Blessings! Beth....and Roger!! XOXO


  1. Oh! I am SO GLAD he is home!!! :-)

    A very happy birthday to Becca and congrats to her on the makeup. I'll just invite myself over for some birthday cheesecake...

  2. So good to know Roger is home - my lower leg is swollen at the moment from a bad reaction to a leech bite. It is very itchy but that's about it - I can only imagine what Roger is going through, so when I am tempted to complain about it I will think of your husband and remember to pray for him.
    Enjoy your day with Becca. My daughter started to wear make-up at about the same age. She has always opted for very natural make up - a dusting of the natural mineral powders that are so popular now and a light sheen of pale lip gloss. It does give her skin a glow and enhances her natural beauty.
