December 13, 2011

Today was a little more relaxed than the last few, and I think that was a good thing. Jason still had to go to OT and PT, and as usual, OT wore him down a little more than PT would have liked. Jason still did his best and still gave 100%, of what he had left, so to say the least, he was tired by the end of the day. Not much else to write about today, other than we had a few more visitors and they were all folks we had seen before... a couple of times, so I didn't have them sign the Red Book again. One of them was the Sargent Major for the Wounded Warrior Battalion, and we had not seen him since we were in Bethesda, so that was nice. One of the Wounded Warrior support groups came up, all dressed up in Christmas attire, and handed out cookies and other goodies, and that was pretty much it.

Tomorrow is going to start with a shower (after breakfast), and then after that I will be headed off for a trip up to Los Angeles. I will be going up to see one of my other sons, David and his family, and coming back down tomorrow. It will be a nice visit, though short, but it is something I need to take care of (I'm going up for more than just a quick visit).

My guess is that most of the posts, for the next few weeks (with the exception of a few days), there isn't going to be that much to write about. Perhaps this is a good thing and makes for a good transition to ending the blog. After that first of the year Jason's focus will be on Rehab, because the "healing" will be complete, and that is another story in itself. Thank you, all, for all the prayers and support.

  1. Have a safe trip to L.A. George. Keeping Jason and all of his family in our prayers. Let us know when your blog "officially ends" so I don't stay up all night waiting to read it. Also, please let us know if there is any thing else you all need and what foundation or organization we can contribute to in some way that helps Jason and his family and all the other wounded marines from EOD.

    All our best and friendship,
    Karen & Rob

  2. Used to make the trip from Anaheim down to San Diego to visit my Dad! It's actually not that bad a trip, especially when you can see the ocean. Of course it is more interesting at night...Know that I'm here lifting up thoughts and prayers. Adding prayers for safe travels!
    Psalms 107:28-31 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

  3. I have not left a comment since Thanksgiving. I have read the blog every day. Moving out of the hospital is exciting. It is wonderful to hear the cooperation concerning the home and the willingness to install a chairlift. The chairlift means one less limit.

    Jason and men and women like him and their families have given a great nation and all us who call the US home which can never be repaid. It can only be appreciated and not forgotten.

    My sincere wish for all of the Ross family is the short term is they are all able to be together in the new home at Christmas and the New Year brings the best gifts from God.
