Well, today was a pretty good day for Jason. He had talked about wanting to get moving on a service dog, and would be wanting to start looking at dogs today. He not only looked at dogs, he picked and bought one. Well, technically I guess it wasn't a purchase, more of an adoption as they like to call it. Anyway, Boomer (that's his name) is a 9-week old puppy, and appears to be everything you would expect in a puppy German Shepard mix. He is fully of energy and yet sleeps a lot; everything is new to him and therefore exciting; finding the right food is not difficult, he tries to eat everything. Okay, on that last point, we did purchase the recommended puppy chow for him, and Boomer seems to like it. I took a few pictures of the two of them together, and I will be posting them tomorrow, as I promised Linda that I would show them to her first. Speaking of Linda, she seems to have caught a cold or something and doesn't feel very good right now. She spent a good portion of the day in bed - but I digress. The next step is to coordinate a training program for Boomer, and that will probably be starting in the next few months or so. I believe they would like to begin working with the dogs when they are about 6-months.
Jason spent a couple of hours in his new power chair, and he did alright. There are some things that need to be adjusted, and I hope those adjustments don't take too long as I think Jason is beginning to warm to the idea of the power chair. He still says he would rather have his other chair, so we'll continue to push to get that one done as soon as it can be.
Otherwise, today was spent just relaxing around the house and continuing with the emptying of boxes and doing laundry. Jason seems to be doing well, and tomorrow he said he wants to do a shower and dressing change, since he has an early doctor appointment on Monday. If Jason gets up, around 07:00 and takes a shower and dressing change, he wouldn't be able to get to an appointment before 09:00, and that is without much breakfast. By not having to do a dressing change (or shower) he will be able to get to the early appointment. So, anyway, that is all for today, and I hope you all have a great weekend. And don't forget... Go Niners!
Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers.
