On Saturday we took the girls to the High Caliber Equine Rescue Ranch, it is one of the largest in the country, specializing in horse rescue. It was a great day and Jason had a pretty good time with the girls; learning about the horses and getting a chance to even feed some of them. The horses were all, or at least most of them, friendly and we all had a good day. After the visit we headed back to the house and it was now getting later in the evening and Jason wanted to fix dinner - something he does every now and again. I could tell he was tired and I suggested that he go lay down, a few times, but he wanted to fix dinner. Dinner was very good, as it was chicken breasts stuffed with cream cheese and spinach. Even Jackie liked the new dinner, and finally Jason got to bed. And yes, there was the regular dressing change and shower.
Sunday, Jason stayed in bed, almost 100% of the time. He complained about sourness, like it was muscles that had been work…
Jason is still in the hospital, only now both Gracie and Kojak are also there with him. We brought them to the hospital, so they could see Jason, and Jason could see them. The nursing staff thought they were both so cute they wanted us to leave them with Jason. We agreed to, after discussing them taking the time to get them outside every once in awhile, and so they remained after we left. I kind of half expect to get a phone call in the middle of the night asking me to come pick them up, so we'll see how it goes.
As far as the treatment goes, they are still running a blood thinner, heparin (I think) and still discussing what can and should be done. We hope to hear something in the morning, so in the mean time Linda and I are going to attempt to get a good night sleep. We stayed with him until about 21:30 (9:30PM), when he was obviously falling asleep, so we said good night and let him rest. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
A quick update/follow up on Jason and the infection. Yesterday he didn't ever really get to feeling very good, and in fact we had to cancel on a GSF event that we really wanted to attend. That's okay, though, as he felt much better today and by the end of the day was definitely improved. I am hopeful that he will continue to improve and quite possibly, by the end of the week, he will be back to his normal self. We will be headed to see the doctors at Balboa tomorrow, but that won't be until later in the morning. Linda and I will be taking the girls to school first.
BTW - both Stacy and Jackie are doing well and continuing to grow way too fast. We love having them here with us, and just wish it was 100% of the time. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
