December 9, 2011

Today started out with Jason going over to OT, and PT this morning. Okay, it started with him eating breakfast, then he went on to OT. Anyway, Jason spent a good portion of the day in his wheelchair, and still had time to do things like find a house. Well, it isn't official yet, but right now it does look like the most promising, and it is a pretty nice place with lots of room. I think there is going to have to be some compromise, if Jason wants to get into a house before the end of the year. If he moves into a place and it doesn't have everything he would like, then after a little while he can ask for another place to move to, though that isn't much fun. Anyway, we did go take a look, and the place is relatively new, and in good shape. He just wants to have a place that his family is going to be comfortable living at.

I was hoping to be more done today, and did my best to keep pace with all that was happening. The challenges were keeping all the different things coordinated and still moving. Jason had PT and OT, like I said earlier; and, then he took a shower (those seem to make him feel best); then, after lunch we got our flu shots; and, we talked with several of the different medical teams, and found out that there were a number of other things they wanted Jason to do. Seems a little bit of infection has come back, so now he is back on antibiotics for the next 10 days; we need to plan for a meeting on Monday with the wound treatment team; and, still get things coordinated and communicated to the correct people.

Tomorrow there are a few predetermined activities we need to get through, then we're going to the ZOO! Jason and I are headed over to the San Diego Zoo, and we're going to spend up to four hours there, depends on how he is feeling. Then on Sunday I'm going to see if he is up for Sea World, and get out of the hospital again. We can get into both places for no charge, because he is a Marine, and I'm with him. I am doing my best to not got to places where we'll have to spend much money. I'm also thinking that I'm going to attempt to NOT post an update this weekend, unless there is something that is really extraordinary. We may even go take a look at other homes, but that would be low on the list of things to do.

I would like to thank you, all for all the support and concerns that you have pointed our way.

  1. Sorry to hear a little infection is back. With all that blood they took from him I thought they tested and said all was ok? Been praying so hard for complete healing and will continue to do so. Have a great day at the Zoo, it's supposed to be a really good one. Sounds like you guys are super busy. I hope the dwelling works out soon too.

    All our best,

  4. Hey George and Jason,
    I spent the morning with Linda and the little girls. Neither were feeling up to going to see Santa Claus, they wanted to take a nap. I got Linda her favorite Starbucks beverage and we visited instead. Had a nice visit with Marilyn from Pleasanton also and got to meet Jason's grandparents. I'll be helping Linda next week with a few things to give her some time to get some deadlines met. Can't wait until Jason sees the cute Christmas dresses and sweatshirts!! I think that ought to put a smile on his face. I hope that the zoo was a go, looking forward to hearing all about it!!

    Merry Christmas Season,
