Today was another Saturday, much like last Saturday. Got up and had breakfast; talked a little and then went on to PT, weekend PT that is. The philosophy (I think) is to be sure that Jason gets a chance to do something, other than just lay around in his bed. This is fine, except that the PT person brought in to work with Jason is unaware of what Jason's needs are, and so far they have not taken the time to really familiarize themselves with Jason's file, or what really should be worked on. Don't get me wrong, the weekend team is trying to do what's right for Jason, and at no time is Jason in any danger of being injured, its just that the same basic questions get asked, and it feels like we just go round and round, over the same material. Jason is cooperative, and goes through the exercises, mostly because its something to do, and the sessions don't last much longer than 30 - 45 minutes anyway. And that's how we started the day today.
Instead of going back to his room Jason and I just continued on down the hall to the elevators, and then we went outside. It was relatively nice, and we didn't go anywhere in particular, just stayed down in the courtyard area. We also went over to the Red Box, to see what, if any new DVDs were out, and we didn't see any from the last time we checked it out, besides, neither of us had our wallet with us. It was just a goof-off kind of day, and that's what we did. When we were finished we came back up to the room.
Jason and I talked about nothing, but it was good just to talk. Mostly it was about the dumb stuff we were seeing on T.V., and wondered who came up with this stuff. It was just about time for his lunch and I asked him if he would like to have anything special, and he said, "sure." With that I offered to go get him a milkshake, and this time it was coming from Baskin Robins. Linda and I went out and found one of their ice cream shops and I ordered a milkshake for him and me, and Linda had a double scoop of rocky-road ice cream.
Not much else happened today, as we had dinner, and then a short while later we came back to the Fisher House. Because of the similarities of the days, I am thinking that I might begin to cut back on my blog posts, unless something else happens on the weekend, and only post during the week. Let me know your thoughts on this...
Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers for Jason, and please keep in mind all those who have placed themselves in harms way, so we can live the lives we do.
