Jason had a good day today, in that he was able to spend some time with his brother, David and his family, before they were head back off to California. This week's visit was the first time for Jason to meet his nephew Dylan, so it was a special visit for both of them. There was also a quick visit from Team EXTREME, as Jason was headed to his PT appointment. It was unexpected, and they had a dog with them, so in a couple of different ways it was a special visit for Jason. I think he will be getting another dog, just as soon as he can, and that is based on how he reacted to this dog. Of course that probably won't happen for a couple of years, though it will happen. All of the guys from Team EXTREME came out to visit with Jason and to talk with him briefly. They had read this blog, so they knew about his pushups and mentioned it to him, and let him know that now that he set that level he is know expected to do at least that and probably more each time. About the only down thing for today was the fact that David and his family had to leave for California and not sure when they might be able to get back out here.

Like I said, Jason went to PT today, and they worked on his balance and some of his core strengthening exercises. He didn't get to set any new records with pushups or pullups, so we'll all just have to wait until later for that. The PT folks also continued to encourage Jason to keep working to improve his strength and be prepared to do more work each day. So we probably can expect to see more days where Jason is going to be noticing soar muscles.

Thank you, for your continued prayers and support.

  1. Know that the Lord is always with you, wrapping His loving arms around you and holding on tight!
    Psalms 18:2-6 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
