January 28, 2012

Jason's fever went up again today, and in general he is feeling like he has the flu or something. His attitude is still quite positive, and still demonstrating that sense of humor he is known for, though he has been sleeping quite a bit, fortunately. I have been over to see him for the better part of the day and have spoken with the medical staff, and they think they have the infections under control, since most have almost completely gone, and all new cultures are coming up negative. I suspect that he will be back home in a matter of two days, and possibly sooner.

When I first got out this morning I headed over to the tire repair shop where they found that there were two nails in the flat tire, with one of those being in the side wall, and therefore unrepairable. That meant I had to purchase a new tire, a Michelin, since the others were all Michelin. The good news is that Semper Fi Fund is reimbursing me, along with all the other things I have needed to purchase.

While at the hospital, Van came by to take a look at the seat, and to give Jason another seat. Unfortunately the seat he provided was identical to the original seat that Jason had from Bethesda, and that one didn't work out. We are going to have to continue working with them, and do what we can to find a solution to this conundrum.

Also, while at the hospital, I saw that they were needing to get blood drawn for tests, and Jason HATES getting blood drawn. His veins don't cooperate, and it is a painful experience for him. Another reason for him to want to get out of the hospital, just as soon as he can. Please keep him in your prayers, and also the medical teams, as they continue to try to make his life a little easier.

  1. Christ suffered in our place that we might have the hope of Heaven! Always praying!
    Isaiah 53:11-12 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
