It has been a nice quiet day for Jason. I went over to see him early this morning and found him fast asleep. I just let him sleep, as I figured that he must have been tired, otherwise he wouldn't have been asleep (how's that for deductive reasoning). The nurse came in at about 08:30 and said the PACU had called for him, so they needed to get him ready to go down. Jason woke up a little and wanted to know when he was going to be able to get down to the PACU. I told him they just called for him and he said, "Oh, okay, good." Then went back to sleep. I told him I loved him and would be back to see him after he came back. He simply said, "I love you too" and squeezed my hand, and didn't even open his eyes... kind of cute actually.
He was back before 11:30 and he called me to let me know he was back. I asked him how he was doing and if he wanted me to bring him anything to eat. He asked for an Arby's sandwich, so that's what I went and picked up. I got a small one for me too. We ate our sandwiches and then I asked him if he wanted to get out in his chair today, and he said he did. About that time the nurse came in and I asked her about Jason's schedule of I.V. meds. He needed to get an antibiotic that needed to run for two hours, so we would be delayed getting out at least until then. That was okay, we just relaxed and watched some football. The 49re weren't playing so we just watched for the entertainment of the game.
Bridgette, the girls and Yvonne came in a short while after the I.V. was going, and were able to stay for about an hour for a visit. Stacy was eating some McDonald's chicken nuggets and Jackie was just as happy as could be. Jason's girls are a couple of the cutest little girls you'll ever see and they are always happy. Of course I might be a little biased in their favor, but hey, I'm Grandpa... ;-) When they started to show signs of needing a nap Bridgette said she would take them back to the Fisher House (FH)
After the I.V. finished Jason was able to get into his chair, and there was only a minor issue with discomfort, and he was able to deal with it. We first went down to the Red Box and picked up a couple movies - Jason wants to watch them tonight - and then we went down to the basement and to the galley. We picked up our dinners and then sat down in the dinning room and we ate our meals there. It would have been better if there were more people around, so I could have gotten a picture or two taken. The place was almost empty.
We went back up to the room and there was another game on - Green Bay/Minnesota - and again, it was only entertainment for us. We really didn't care who won the game. I had been kind of busy most of the day and by 19:00 (7pm) I was ready to come back to the Lodge and try to catch up on my email, phone calls and get the blog updated. Besides Jason wanted to start watching his movies so I wanted to give him the time. I came back and now I'm almost done with this entry.
Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers.
