May 19, 2011 - A quiet day

Jason had another quiet day today, and not much went on. He did get some visitors, and we captured their names in the log book, and found out about a few more things that are being made available to him, such as travel help, and assistance with his living needs and things like that. Obviously all these things are available to him, and he could very well take advantage of them later on, when he is on to his next rehab level. Right now though, he needs to get through the rest of his surgeries, with the next one to be tomorrow morning.

That surgery should be a pretty quick visit to the O.R. and then back to his room. The doctors said they weren't planning to do much, unless there was a need and that is not anticipated. I've already spoken with him, and he wants to get out in his chair tomorrow, since today didn't work out. He wanted to get back outside and today was a rainy day with thunderstorms, so going outside wouldn't have been good for him. He had some visitors from Walter Reed Hospital, other wounded warriors, and that really brought his spirits up. It gave him a chance to see and visit with some of the guys who have already gone through what he is currently going through, only they are about 6 to 8 months ahead of him. They all looked pretty good - IMHO

His birthday is at the end of this month (31st) and he is already received a couple of birthday cards. I think they kind of surprised him, and not just because they're early. They came from people he really doesn't know, and it reenforced, again, just how much people are pulling for him. God has given him a challenge and we are here to help him get through this, so that he can move forward with the rest of his life.

Thank you, for all your continued prayers, Jason is appreciative as are the rest of his family, extended family, and friends.
