Subject: Gerardo is Home/First day of school

Gerardo did come home on Friday.  He has done fairly well.  Last night was a trip toemergency because of heart pain.  They gave him Tylenol!  We won't be doing that again...  He likes to get up and get around and enjoys being home with everyone.  He takes nothing less than 12 pills three times a day!  Most are for blood pressure and heart. Today Jose took him to dialysis.  He will have it Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Today was our first day back to school.  We had gone longer into the summer to get some extra time in knowing we would start late.  Even with a few stressors going on at the same time, we did well.   We had a new lady come to work today.  I have our cleaning list all typed up on the wall, I thought, well, this will be easy.  Not so, she doesn't read.  So common here.  So we walked through it all.  I hope she will want to keep a long term commitment here.  I am not the best trainer!   I am sure Ada can show her the ropes better than I.   This morning I was really concerned about scheduling and how we will fit it all in and give everyone the care they need.  I cried out to God like David did in Psalms so many times.  He heard my cry.  We are just taking it a little bit at a time, remembering we have been given an entire day by God, each day.  His mercies are new every morning and He delights in loving us.  So with a God like that, it can't be bad!  Living in the present and treasuring the moments is a gift from Him.   Blessings to you,  we thank you for your prayers and concern, Paula
