January 2, 2011

Not too bad of a day, though Jason was experiencing some extra pain, and wasn't able to sit in his chair for as long as he usually does. Fortunately we have to head over to the hospital in the morning, and that should allow for them to possibly provide some ideas/solutions to how he can better cope with it. I got him up and we did some things around the house, and we found that we actually had a little free time. He wanted to get back to his bed and take a nap, and this sounded great to me. After he got up I suggested to him that it would be an opportune time for him to take a shower, and then a dressing change. Because of the holiday, just past, his shower/dressing change schedule got a little out of whack (side note: What is "whack"?). Anyway, he agreed and so the shower felt good and he also looked good after.

There were some challenges with the internet, as neither of us could get on, for a few hours (not sure why), but it seemed to clear up later this evening (that's why I am blogging now). We have appointments in the morning so I will need to be moving early, to get him and the girls up and fed before we leave. With that, I'm going to be going to bed now, and will provide a little more in the way of updates tomorrow.

Thank you, for all your continued prayers and support.

  1. Hi Jason, I still love to read that you are out of the hospital and now an out-patient! Having seen you in the early months it is just amazing how you have taken your recovery head on. Hope your pain has lessened today and that it is just from being out of your routine. Peace!

    Sending prayers and support your way....always

  2. Hate issues with the internet! It's just supposed to work!
    Know that I'm still here praying!
    Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

  3. Jason, I have been following along on the e-mail end of things... it's nice to have it pop into my e-mail each day rather than going through Safari. Just want to tell you how happy I am that you are out of the hospital and doing so well. It's so neat that your dad is there to lend a hand, how fortunate for BOTH of you. I bet the girls are keeping you both pretty busy! I teach Kindergarten and know how active little ones are, and how much fun they bring to your day. Keep it up and know we are all praying for you and your family. Great Job, George, thanks for the continued e-mails. I read every one.
