This has been an enjoyable weekend for many reasons, but one of the best was because Linda was able to come down and spend it with me. That means that Jason was able to spend some time with Mom; the girls were able to spend some time with Grandma; and, I got to see my wife! All because of one little visit... ;-)
Jason was feeling pretty good today, though I think he may have done just a little too much, by the time he got back in bed. I checked the wounds and their dressings, and everything looks okay, so I think that it was just a matter of him getting worn down a little bit more than usual, and Jason is the type to want to push it sometimes. We had a new nurse come in, Terry, and he seemed like the right type to be working with Jason. He is a retired military corpsman, so he has a very good understanding of what Jason was doing. He has spent some time over in Iraq, as well as working with some of the returned military (all branches). He and Jason hit it off pretty well, and I over heard Jason telling Terry all about how he was injured, and I think it was actually good for both of them. He stayed for his 8-hour shift and then had to go, and he made the same comment that the others have said... Jason is really an independent kind of guy.
About the only thing that we did outside the house today was to go shoe shopping for Stacy. We went over to Target, I saw this pair of shoes on top of the rack. I checked them against Stacy's feet, and then she tried them on. She liked them; Jason liked them; and, they were on sale. It was a win situation no matter how you looked at it. We were done with the shoe shopping in less than 15 minutes and the tennis shoe with little pink stripes makes Stacy happy. We also picked up some food items, since we were there, but there weren't many things to get.
Grandma and the girls went out in the backyard and Stacy blew some bubbles with her new wand and solution. Jackie was having a great time being walked around by Grandpa; she was in some nicer pants that were not for crawling around on concrete. Actually Jackie is doing a bunch more walking lately. Linda got to see her take a bunch of steps (I think she said 11) in a row, getting across the room. Too, bad she didn't have the camera with her when that happened. We did get a bunch of other pictures, and I'll work to get some of those posted over the next couple of days.
Linda had to catch a flight back to Livermore, where Rob and/or Karen is going to pick her up at the airport. She will be back down again this coming weekend, so we don't have to wait too long to see her this time. We won't have the girls with us, but we should the next time she is here.
Thank you, for all your support and continued prayers. Jason is doing well, and we're about half way through the I.V. treatment. Once that is done he'll be able to really get going with his rehab.
