November 26, 2011

We got up early this morning and I went over to pick up George, so that after breakfast we could just go over and see Jason. We had breakfast at the Fisher House, and then we finally went over to the hospital. It was probably better that we ended up going a little later in the morning, as he was able to get his PT work in, before we got there, though Jason was a little tired from the work out. So we visited for a while, and then noticed he was starting to fall asleep. Linda and George (III) had to head for the airport, as their plane was leaving early this afternoon, so perhaps it was better that Jason was getting tired at that time anyway. We all said our good-bye's and then I took Linda and George to the airport, and Jason went to sleep.

They got off okay, and though they are gone now, we will probably be seeing Linda and the girls in another couple of weeks. Actually, if all goes well, we'll be seeing Bridgette about the same time as the girls, so it could turn into a three-way reunion, and Jason is looking forward to seeing them all.

When I came back to Jason's room, one of the first things he said was that he would like to get out and go around in his chair. We did a little tour of the campus, at least more than we have done in the past. We even went over to building 26, where I showed him where the Marines had an office, and we got to see what one of the rooms there look like. We have spoken with the doctors about Jason possibly moving to one of the rooms, if a house isn't ready. Unless they are going to be doing some serious remodeling or reconstruction, there is no way that his current bed will be able to get into one of those room. Just makes it that much more imperative that we find a house so the family can all be together again.

This evening, Jason and I ate some pizza and watched a movie - Super Eight - one of the three that he got out of Red Box. It was one of those movies that he wanted to see over these past several months but just haven't been able to, and we'll probably watch another one tomorrow (not sure which one). The pizza was good, but not the best we have ever had, so we will continue to look for a good pizzeria until we find the one we really like. Anyway after that I could see that he was getting tired again, so I told him good night and headed back over to the Fisher House to end the day and update the blog.

Thank you, for all your continued prayers and support.

  2. Know of a great one in Anaheim, but not San Diego. Used to be able to feed our family La Pizzaria for $15.03...those were the days! Hope you find a good one!
    Continuing to pray!
    Psalms 34:17-19 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

  3. Just wanted to leave a little note to say how honored I was to meet Jason and his family yesterday. I came in with Joyce from Marine Parents & Blue Star Mothers, and 3 other people. We had brought a small Christmas tree made especially for Jason and some goodies as well.

    You will all be in my thoughts and prayers and I wish nothing but the best for you Jason. I am so glad Joyce has shown me this blog so that I may keep up on your progress as I live too far away to visit more often with her.

    My wish for you is that you and your family will be in your new house and settling in for the holidays. Oh yes, if you wear out the gift I gave you, let me know and I'll make another one. As many as you need. :)

    Fond regards,
