We went to the Marine Marathon today, and got there at O-Dark-30 this morning. The picture on the blog shows the Iwo monument, where Jason was to meet with Team Extreme. To make the story short, Jason had been up in his chair for nearly four hours when he realized he would not be able to stay for the presentation ceremony, and we came back to the hospital. There was more done while we were there, but I need to keep this blog post very short. I just wanted to be sure to let everyone know what has happened.
While I was taking care of some loose ends and doing some packing I received a call and Jason and I are to be leaving for Balboa, tomorrow morning - early some time. I am in a hurry up mode of packing and don't have much free time now. Once we get to Balboa, we will get settled in and then later this week Linda will be coming down to spend some time with Jason and I. While she is here, her parents - Joe and Jess Lascurain - will be jumping in again to help support her day care. There is actually an interesting story behind that, but suffice to say, "Thank you!" because without their support Linda would not have been able to do what she has been able to do, over these past several months. There are others to thank as well, like the Pleasanton/Livemore Military Families group, and SemperFi Fund, and Wounded EOD Warriors Foundation - but I can't list them all right now.
Bridgette had to take off this morning, to head home to take care of a minor emergency that happened; and, now we are set to leave tomorrow. Funny how things happen sometimes. Please keep Bridgette and the kids in your thoughts and prayers, as we all go through these next couple of days of transition. Also, keep all the families of all the military in your prayers, as sometimes it is very difficult for some of them to deal with the issues they have been dealt, and God's strength is needed.
Not sure if I will be able to blog tomorrow, so I'll say thank you, to all for all your support and prayers, and stay tuned for the next installment. TTFN -
