Jason had a nice day today, and got out in his chair. He didn't go out side today, and simply rolled around the 5th floor. He said he plans to get out again tomorrow, so that he can get down to "Main Street" (an area in the hospital that has services such as the Post Office, a barber shop, the Credit Union, and fast food). We watched a couple of movies (that Jason's Uncle Larry bought for him), and we all ate in Jason's room, though this wasn't the first time for that. His doctor came by and visited with us for a little while, and I think that made Jason feel good.
Another visit for Jason, today, was a General and Sargent Major of the Marines. Both of these men spoke with Jason in a very positive and supportive manner; and because both of them had been to Afghanistan, were able to discuss some specific details about what happened, and where. They stayed for 15 or 20 minutes and we took some pictures (I'll post tomorrow) and had them sign the Red Book, and then they were off to visit with others. These kinds of unplanned visits are the best visits for Jason, as I think it makes him feel more connected with the Marines.
Tomorrow Uncle Larry heads back to California, and I'm not sure who is going to miss him more - Jason or me and Linda. Uncle Larry has really gotten involved with Jason's care and helps me to move and/or adjust Jason, when he needs to be repositioned in his bed, or his chair. In the past I have always been a key person to help Jason, and with both me and Uncle Larry doing the work you can really tell that Jason is much more confident in the moves. The medical staff does help, but because it seems it is always someone different, the consistency of having the two of us has been good.
Not much else to post today, so I'll simply say, "Thank you!" to all of you for your continued prayers and for keeping us in your hears.
