Update 1/18/2011

Mom went to the doctor yesterday. He is very pleased with her progress so far and said that there is no sign of infection. Praise the Lord! Her wound is still about 1 centimeter deep, and he said that will be still be several weeks before it is completely closed. They checked her hemoglobin (red blood cell count) (which soon after her surgery was down around 5 (normal is around 15 to 18)) she is up to 10.1, yet another answer to prayer. She will be going back to the doctor in two weeks (personally, I am hoping that by that time her wound will have closed enough by then so that no more dressing changes will have to be done).

As to the rest of the family, dad hurt his knee at work soon before Mom's surgery. He is supposed to have a MRI this week, but the doctor thinks the meniscus (which is in the knee cap) is torn and surgery may have to be done to repair that!

Work is going well, I don't have many hours, but each week I seem to be picking up a few more which is a blessing. I am taking a total of 4 classes, 11 credits this semester. I'm working on them one at a time. Currently I am over half way through "The History of Israel" and the next class will be "Educational Psychology."

Sam is doing well, keeping up with school and music practice. He is also enjoying the snow that we've had. Sadly, it is starting to melt...oh well, by the end of the month we'll probably have more.
