February 20, 2012

It was great having the girls here today. Jason was showing some signs of being very happy with the girls being here, and the girls reciprocated. Jackie was walking all over the place, and Grandma (Linda) was doing her best to wear out the battery on my camera (see took about 70 pictures today). She said she wanted to go through them before I can post so apologies to all, but at least you know the pictures are here. At the end of the day the girls headed back home, so we won't have them here again until next week.

Jason had a pretty good day, though there were some times when the pressure points did get to him, and he needed a little extra pain meds. We will be going in tomorrow to take care of appointment, and I am also going to be going over to his "main" doctor to find out just what the plan is for doing something to alleviate those darn pressure points. I do believe that once they have those under control, or removed, he will feel so much better, and any healing that is left to be done will do so quickly. We are both anxious to get things going with more of his rehab, just that some of it can not take place yet, and may not be able to be done for several months, as long as the pain continues.Don't get me wrong, Jason is doing well, and his spirits continue to ride high, we just have some continuing challenges that we need to deal with.

Linda was able to get through a bunch of his clothes that had been in boxes, and she was able to launder them and put some away. Others will need to be simply gotten rid of, or donated as he won't need them any longer. Other stuff we still need to get through are some of the items that came back from Afghanistan, and he needs to identify what is going to be done with that.

We took Linda back to the airport this evening and when we got there she was surprised by the number of people, and cars. I kind of reminded her that is was a holiday and that it was normal. I guess she made it to her plane, since she didn't call me to come pick her back up. Of course that would have been okay with me, but it might have been somewhat of a problem for the day care, back home.

Thanks, for all the support and continued prayers for Jason and all of us.

  1. Glad you had one last day all together! Definitely praying that those pressure points can be taken care of! Sounds so miserable!
    So thankful for the assurance we have in Christ!
    1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

  2. Hi Jason! Good the IV treatment is over and a shower is always great to get you refreshed and ready to go. I like reading about the girls visits, they are adorable.

    Prayers for your continued healing.
