Today started something a little different. Jason had his breakfast, and he wasn't sweating anywhere near what it was before. He was having a number of discussions with various people, and the visitors were coming in on a fairly steady stream, though we did not allow all of them in. He still needs his rest, and will over extend himself if we don't. All of this was well and good, and in general he is doing well and getting better. The one thing that was different was that the activity therapist came in and asked him if he would like to do some painting. It is one activity that he really enjoys (has since he was in grade school) and he can do it right from his bed. the challenge is that he is right handed and he only has his left hand to do the painting.
He started out with a flower, and even though he was doing it left handed, it looked pretty good. While the painting was going on his occupational therapist came in and was happy to see him do the painting. She wanted him to start working his arms and this was a good way for him to do it. One of the other activities he was doing was learning how to use an iPad. His EOD brothers got him one, and he is finally feeling strong enough to it. David, his brother, already uses one, so David spent some time showing him how to use it, and Jason was off and running. He even got to take a look at the blog. David had to get back home today, so now his "tech" support is going to be remote.
Otherwise it was simply a good day for him to relax and visit with family and those who dropped by. I am hoping that most of his days, going forward, are like today, and progress is steady and constant. Please continue to pray for all and thank you for all the support you've given so far.
