New Year's Eve is a time of reflecting back on the past year, and hopefully looking forward to the next. This past year has been a difficult one for the Ross family, and especially for Jason. We have had some set backs, though none so dire that we could not go on. Jason was seriously injured, and he survived. He will have challenges for the rest of his life, and will have to learn to live a whole new life. On top of that he will be doing it without his wife, who has decided to go her own way. I have been providing Jason with all the love and support I know how, and have been able to do so because I have a wife and family that show me love and support; and, then there are all the extended family and friends that have also been providing help along the way. It looks like I won't be going home, to Livermore, anytime soon and we have a plan, though preliminary, that Linda (wife) will be coming down to help. Initially it will be two week intervals, and then maybe longer periods. Right now were just playing everything by ear.
Today, Jason and I had the girls to ourselves for most of the day. Bridgette and her father did come by for a short while, and then later this evening, as they were going out to celebrate the new year they stopped by, mostly to see the girls and to drop off something they mistakenly took to her house. We had a great time, and stayed pretty active, though I was able to get all of them to lay down for a little rest this afternoon (that included Jason). I took the time to clean up a little and then rest some myself. Dinner was very simple yet tasty, and even had some left overs for tomorrow's lunch.
The new year should provide new opportunities for Jason, and effectively me, as he works his way through his rehab. The recovery is almost over and I hope the extra stress doesn't cause any kind of relapse. I just need to be a bit more pushy when it comes to Jason getting the needed rest. Funny part is that I also want to be sure that he gets a good work out when he goes to OT and PT.
Happy New Year to everyone, may you have a great year and may God provide you all that you need to continue to move forward. Thank you, for all your prayers and support, it is much appreciated.
