Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! The boys surprised Krista this morning with bunches of flowers that we picked up at Costco yesterday. The trick was trying to conceal it from Krista, which ended up not being so difficult since Krista was so sleepy most of the day. She is taking IV antibiotics for the staph infection, but they make her nauseated so she also takes antinausea medication, and that makes her drowsy. It's not the best condition for her, as it interferes with her ability to exercise regularly. But it's going to be a short-lived condition. Tomorrow should see the last doses of the IV antibiotic.

My mother is also coming back up here tomorrow. That will be be very helpful as it has been difficult with Krista's sleepiness to be able to make it into work. Now that many of the mandatory evacuation areas have been downgraded, my office should be reopened. I've already heard from some friends that they are back in their houses. The fire is supposed to be 65% contained tonight, with full containment expected Wednesday if all goes well. May God grant the firefighters more favor, as the weather forecasters are expecting temperatures and wind to increase and humidity to decrease starting tomorrow.

Hear my prayer, O LORD;
listen to my cry for mercy.
In the day of my trouble I will call to You,
for You will answer me.
Among the gods there is none like You, O Lord;
no deeds can compare with Yours.
All the nations You have made
will come and worship before You, O Lord;
they will bring glory to Your name.
For You are great and do marvelous deeds;
You alone are God.
(Psalm 86:6-10)
