Today was a pretty good day. The weather here is nice - not too warm and not too cold. I generally go out with a lite jacket (more a windbreaker actually) and then I'll just wear it most of the day, kind of loosely. I'm still wearing shorts most often, though I will wear my jeans if I think there is a need, and then finally I wear tennis shoes, as I really don't have anything else to wear on my feet. Okay, I didn't mean to start out with a wardrobe discussion, but that's what came out first. So, how is Jason doing?
Jason started the morning with his breakfast as usual, and then we just sort of sat around and talk about anything that came to mind, and watch whatever he is watching on T.V. Sometimes we both just sort of sit back and will take a cat nap, as we wait for the PT folks to come in. Today sort of turned into one of those days. Jason is no longer taking his pain meds via the I.V., and the nurse came in and said she was asked to give him one of the meds an hour before he was to go to PT. Well, as you might predict, the meds worked wonderfully, and Jason fell asleep. The physical therapist came in and asked me to wake him up in a short while so he could go to the gym, and then quickly left. I think she wanted me to wake him so she didn't have to. Well, I did wake him and helped him to get ready, then we went down to the gym first, again to work on balance, then onto the bigger C5 gym. The C5 gym isn't quite as large as the one at Bethesda, but it does have more out door things for the guys to use, AND a pool. Jason stayed there for a while then back to his room.
That was pretty much the big activity for the day, and there were no visitors other than Mom and I, and of course the medical staff. We did get a call from Katie, our niece, and she and her husband are going to be coming for a visit. Jason is looking forward to it, as he hasn't see Katie in a long while, and Jake (her husband) is also a physical therapist, and since Jason spends most of his time with those types they should have lots to talk about. Actually, Linda and I will be glad to get a chance to see Katie and Jake too.
Not much else going on tonight, other than the fact that I did find the closest Taco Bell tonight... ;-) I'm going to be attempting to get these posts out a little earlier from now on, so that those of you who wait to see what is happening don't have to wait so long. Though, I do thank you, for continuing to follow.
Thank you, for all your prayers and continued support.
