This post was set last night - but due to a problem with my gmail account (since corrected) the posting was apparently locked out. As you can see it is back up and I will be working with Google to get this corrected. Thank you, all for continuing to follow this journey with Jason.

Today was a good day for Jason, in the O.R., as the doctors were happy with what they found, and discovered that even some of the wounds on the right side were beginning to contract and show signs of healing. On the left side they still had to remove some tissue, but very little, and feel that it isn't too far behind the right side. All this was good news, and a positive sign for Jason. Having said that, Jason had a bit of a rough time coming out of surgery today.
Jason was supposed to go in to surgery first, but then got pushed back due to the need for others to go in. This is actually a good sign in that he is no longer considered the one who needs treatment the most. The down side to this is that they didn't tell either Bridgette or me that this was happening, and I only found out because I happened to go by his room in the I.C.U. to leave a log - more about that later - Jason was still in the room, and they were just prepping him to go. Then after he came back he was experiencing some significant pain, and it took them a while to get it under control. Part of the reason for this, as it was explained to me, is because he is building a tolerance to the pain meds that they have been giving him, so it is becoming more difficult to control. We, Bridgette and I, have again asked that we be notified should there be any kind of change with Jason, even if it is just his schedule. Dr. Malone agreed that we should have been notified and said she would insure the staff would be doing that going forward.
Thank you, for your continued support and prayers. Continue to leave your comments, and let me know how you like the blog. Bridgette and I will probably have to read all the comments to him, after he is better.
