June 18, 2011

Jason started today quite early, in that he went down to the PACU at about 6:00AM, to get ready for his procedure. The procedure was pretty much the same as the previous two, and he was back up in his room before 10:00AM. This means that there was nothing new to consider with his wounds and that is a very good thing. The rate of his healing is now at a steady pace, and that is also a very good thing. Bottom line is that today has been a nice quiet day, with Jason feeling pretty good, and not much else going on.

He had a few visitors, besides family, and a new nurse (new in the sense that he had not seen her before). If tomorrow is anything like today I am going to do my best to get him involved in a board game or something, other than watching TV and movies. I want him to start using his hands more, like the PT and OT folks have asked him to do; and besides there are supposed to be games available for them to play, so now is a good time to use them.

I have to admit, it was quite crowed in his room, at one point today, when both Mom and I were there, along with Bridgette and both girls. Anybody else to come in the room would start to feel a bit cramped. Jason was able to spend a little more time with the girls and played with both of them a little. One of the best moments was when Stacy just wanted to sit next to Daddy and hold his hand. I think that made Jason feel better than any of the medications he has had, and did more to help him heal emotionally, than anything else that has come along.

Short post for today, so I sign off with a big Thank you, to all of you for keeping Jason and all of us in your prayers and thoughts. God Bless.

  1. Sounds like a nice calm day, what a blessing. Jason, I can picture your little girl wanting to sit next to you and hold your hand. Brings tears to my eyes. I hope grandpa can take some pictures tomorrow of you and your girls. They will cherish them when they are adults. Wishing you, Jason, and George, a very Happy Father's Day tomorrow. To all the Dad doctors and nurses and therapists and staff, Happy Father's Day. All our best, Karen & Rob Weaver

  2. I second that. A Father's Day picture tomorrow would be great. As always, it will be hard with squirming kids, but that is half the fun- just seeing what you can capture. Wish I could be there to help. Well, however you spend it, know that we are sending our wishes for a Happy Father's Day Jason and George!
    Love, Aunt Joyce
