November 20, 2011

Not much to report on today. Jason went to PT, later in the morning. Still working on his balance and doing some strengthening moves. Then he headed back to his room, where he stayed the rest of the day. We originally talked about getting outside for a little today, but then it started raining, so we stayed in side. Funny thing is, a movie came on that seemed appropriate, at least a little bit, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." We also watched a little football, Jason played his video/computer game, and slept.

Along with all that he did have a visitor, Patrick, from Okinawa. Well, he really wasn't from Okinawa, that's just where Jason and Patrick originally met, when they were both attached to the EOD team there. Patrick is now with the Fist EOD Company and out of Camp Pendleton. It was a nice visit, and though I think Jason enjoys Mom and Dad being there, I think he enjoys even more when he sees one of his fellow EOD brothers. They tend to speak a different language, and it does give him someone else to just talk with.

Tomorrow will get us going back into a more set schedule, at least for a few days, and then we begin the holidays. With that I am going to say, "Thank you, to everyone for all the continued support and prayers."

  1. You never think of rain in CA but it does now and then. Good way to rest up for the rest of the week!
    Know that I'm always here praying!
