June 12, 2011 - a day like yesterday

Today started out nice, in that I was able to get over to see Jason pretty early, and have breakfast with him. Everyone else was pretty much sleeping, and I'm naturally an early riser. He is still feeling the discomfort of that muscle pull, on his right side, with everything else making progress. His doctor came in early and we got a chance to speak with her, and she confirmed that Tuesday would be the next time he would have to go to the O.R. We spent some time watching movies with him and talking a little about anything he wanted to talk about, and there has been plenty of food brought in for the patients and their families. As a result, we haven't had to go get anything for a couple of days, and that has been very nice. The quality of the food usually goes from good to very good, so there is nothing to complain about. Today was really nice because they had lemonade, and you all know I have a soft spot for lemonade.

I look forward to continued progress with Jason, and his core strengthening exercises, as next weeks gets here. The therapy teams (Physical, Occupational, Recreational)are all very focused on Jason, and they all bring in such high energy and excitement. I know they probably do that to help with the motivation, and from what I can tell, it works.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers, and please keep Jason and all the Marines and service people supported.

  1. It's nice to have uneventful days where you can just get on with the business of living (and healing.) Thanks again, Jason, for the sacrifices you made and are still making. Your reality becomes my reality and keeps me grateful for the gifts God gives to all of us. Blessings, Raymie
