Jason received a few visitors today, one of which was the assistant to the Commandant of the Marines, and his wife. They came in and had a nice visit with Jason, and as it happens, we(Bridgette, Stacy, Jackie, Mom, Dad, Yvonne, and Jeff) all were there, and Bridgette and the General's wife seemed to have hit it off pretty well. Again, we took pictures and got their input into Jason's famous signature Red Book. They stayed for a few minutes and even had time to play a little with the girls, Stacy and Jackie.
In general, Jason is feeling pretty good. He has gotten to the point where he is the director of his own medical treatment, so-to-speak. He tells his nurses what to do; when to do it; and sometimes even how to do it. I am still the number one, when it comes to moves and positioning in the bed, but for just about everything else he is doing it more and more on his own, which makes us all pretty happy. It shows that he is knowledgeable about what his needs are, and that he isn't holding back when he sees them doing something incorrectly.
We ordered out for Chinese food tonight, as he wasn't too satisfied with the hospital food. I let him decide what was to be ordered and I called it in. They delivered right to the hospital, and considering today is a holiday, it really didn't take too long to get here. We didn't stay too late tonight, so that we could get some things ready for tomorrow, and Bridgette was able to stay later with him tonight (for those that are wondering about tomorrow... it's Jason's birthday).
Thank you, all for all you have done, and please continue to keep us in your hearts and in your prayers.
