January 8, 2012

Today was close to a carbon copy of yesterday, only Jason did get up for a short while and then transferred to his recliner chair. It isn't quite the same as laying down, but it does allow for him to be more involved yet low pressure on the wounds. I helped him with a shower and dressing change today, and everything looked better than it has in the past, and in fact looked much better than I thought it would... I am very pleased with this. Even tonight, when he went to bed the dressings usually would show some signs of "wear" and they were not there this time.

Dinner was very simple - I made hamburgers, and Jason helped. Actually it was his idea again. I was trying to decide on what to make when he suggested just using the hamburgers that were in the freezer. I didn't even know there were burgers in the freezer. They were Bubba Burgers, and I have to admit I was a little apprehensive, as I wasn't familiar with the brand (Jason was), and they turned out pretty good. I used cheddar cheese, sliced from a block, and we had some very good tasting cheese burgers for dinner. Stacy enjoyed her burger, and Jackie couldn't get enough. I thought she might take Jason's fingers a couple of times. It was a fun and simple dinner, and actually quite relaxed.

Not much else done today, other than I took down the Christmas tree. I went through the trouble of wrapping each of the ornaments, and packing them in a box, then went out and got the box for the tree. Inside that box... I found the boxes for the ornaments. I guess that's to be expected, since I didn't put the tree up originally... ;-) Anyway, the house looks good, even without the tree, and the girls had fun with grandpa taking the tree down.

Tomorrow is the start of a new week, and we have a pretty full schedule of appointments. I think Jason will be able to get all the appointments in and still get plenty of rest. Thank you, all for the continued support and prayers.

  1. Should have had you take down my Christmas tree! I just took all the ornaments and put them in a box...
    Praying!
    Revelation 3:11-13 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name...

  2. George you are amazing. You are a devoted Dad and Grandpa. The girls will remember these days spent with you. I'm impressed you wrapped each ornament when you didn't know there were boxes. You can tell the character of a man by what he does when no one is watching. You and Jason have been theyrough a lot that we readers have no clue about and, well, it is impressive and good character
