November 11, 2011

Today was a good day for Jason, and he even got to go to PT earlier than on the past few days. The PT guys came by and said that because it was a holiday weekend that the schedule had changed and that Jason could go down a little earlier. Of course this all happened after he had his breakfast, so it was a win. The only thing about the early start that didn't work the way he wanted was the fact that he couldn't get down to the C5, and he had to go with the smaller gym on the 5th floor. He was still able to get all the exercises in that he wanted to and he felt tired, like he likes it.

The wife of the Secretary of the Navy came by today and as things usually turn out, Jason was still at the gym when she came up to the floor. He did get to shake her hand and talk to her, while she was here, but otherwise we didn't get a signature in the Red Book, or a picture. It was nice to see her here though.

Another couple of visitors that came by were Jake and Katie Marrow. Jason was very happy to see them, as it is always good to see family (Katie and Jason are cousins) when you have been away for a while. Katie walked in carrying a couple of plates of brownies for Jason, and also provided him with a "book" (something she put together these past few days) about places to eat, with a strong focus on Taco Bell. I think Jason really enjoyed seeing it, and appreciated the humor that went along with it. Jason also had a good conversation with the both of them, because Jake is a physical therapist, and was a captain in the Army. Jason felt more comfortable telling them about some of the things he had done within EOD, that he might not have been able to go over so easily. Jake and Katie had to leave later in the evening, as they needed to get back home, and said they would be coming back down again, probably in a couple of weeks.

Thank you, for all your prayers and support - go out and have a great weekend.
