September 24, 2011

Today was one of those laid back kind of days, where there really wasn't much planned other than the PACU visit. He went down early and was back by 10:00 today, no update other than to say things were looking good, and we're still moving forward. We had a few visitors, one of which was the Governor of Indian, Mitch Daniels, and then also a couple from Patriot Riders. They came by and gave a coin to Jason, and spent a little time with us to thank Jason and let us know that if there was anything we needed they would do what they can to help. Governor Daniels was not what I had expected, as he came in and was very relaxed and spoke to Jason and I like he was almost apologetic for intruding on us. Not sure that makes any sense, but that is how it felt.

Jason got out on his prone cart today and did some laps for the 4th floor, and then decided to stop in on one of the other EOD Marines. SSgt Travis Green, and his wife have been here for a couple of weeks, and it was very good to get a chance to speak with them. Jason and Travis were talking up a storm for almost an hour before Jason started to feel like he needed to get going. I was actually surprised at how long he was able to stay out, though I would guess the chance to visit with a fellow wounded EOD Marine had a great deal to do with it.

Because of the PACU procedure today Jason did not get breakfast, but that was okay, because both lunch and dinner were brought in by volunteer organizations. The food was pretty good, and the change from the standard fare was welcome, especially since he didn't have to go out to fast food to get something different. Shortly after dinner Jason took a bit of a nap, and then a couple hours later I needed to get going since I had to do some laundry, for both Jason and I. I wanted to be sure that Jason had all the clothes he is going to need for Monday, and now I am quite comfortable that that is the case.

Thank you, for your continued prayers and for all the support you continue to send our way.
