Jason went through surgery today, and physically the surgery was a success and they were able to get some closing of the wounds accomplished. They took the feeding tube out and allowed him to begin eating whatever he wants, and he has been drinking for a few days now (I brought in a case of pink lemonade today - just for him). All of this sounds good, and it is, but his mental attitude dropped a bit today, and you can really see it in him. David, his brother, and I were able to visit with him for a short while and then he asked to be left alone. David put together a sign that was stuck on his door that said only medical personnel were to come in to his room. A short while later Bridgette, his wife, came to visit and Jason asked her to leave. He is needing to get his thoughts together and come to grips with how his life is going to be, going forward.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, and do your best to provide him strength, as right now is when he is needing it most. Thank you, for all the prayers so far, I do believe it has helped.
