Jason had another day, that is probably going to be very similar to the next several days, and weeks. His wounds have progressed to the point where the changes are going to be small, though positive, as continues to heal. In fact, he has reached a point where I don't think reporting on minimal advancements makes much sense, so I will be focusing on other aspects, such as the different therapy treatments he is receiving. I think what I might do is to let everyone know when he doesn't have to go in for treatment and has a "day off." With that, PT came in today and worked with him, on strengthening his arms, and in particular, his right shoulder. M.J. (the Physical Therapist) made the comment that he was gaining good strength in his right arm and shoulder now, and was very happy with how he was progressing. He is also continuing to improve on his left side, and that is the way it has been for some time now.
He had some visitors today, with a couple of different 1st Sergeants coming in to visit with him. They were simply demonstrating the closeness of the Marines when they came by, as neither of them knew Jason, and only wanted to stop by to be sure he was doing okay, and wanting to know if there was anything they could do. Again, it was a good visit for Jason, as he enjoys being able to speak with other Marines who have some common points of history, and these guys did.
In the past I have had a number of folks ask what they can do for us, and I have mentioned in the past about some of the groups who are supporting the families of the wounded warriors. Well, I have a birthday coming up soon, and if you want to do something for me, for my birthday, make a donation to Semper Fi Fund, Wounded Warriors, one of the local Military Families Groups, EOD Warriors, Yellow Ribbon Fund, or one of the other many groups out there providing for the families. They do so much to help us it is amazing.
Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers. Jason is getting better, and just as soon as he can he will be making his own entry into this blog, to thank you all himself.
