Well, today was significant, in that Jason and I went to the movies, and actually watched a movie, in a theater. First time that has happened in over a year for Jason and he was pretty excited about it. Excited that is, until we got there... We went and saw John Carter and that part was okay (enjoyed the movie), the challenge was that we went to an AMC Theater and they don't have particularly good accommodations for people in wheelchairs. We ended up sitting close to the screen and off to the right, as that was pretty much the only place we could sit. The theater was nearly empty, so it wasn't a matter of all the other seats taken, it was the only place Jason could go - other than the other space on the other side of the screen, equally as poor. I was hoping that we were going to be able to get a little better seating, like they do at the Regal Theater back home, but that wasn't to be. The Regal has an open space for wheelchairs a little farther back, AND they're in the center, with room for at least four chairs. My guess is that Jason is not going to want to go to that theater again, so we'll just have to look around and hope we can come up with some type of alternative.
If you haven't figured it out yet, Jason didn't have any appointments today, and then tomorrow is Saturday. We didn't have a bunch to do around the house, and the weather was kind of gloomy outside, so we spent most of the day inside, either at the movie or the house. The movie, John Carter, was better than I expected, as the critics didn't seem to like it; and, the most important thing was that Jason enjoyed the movie. It was a bit of an escape for him, as that's what movies are supposed to do.
Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, and Jason is in much better shape than he was last year. He is still in bed most of the time, but at least he isn't having to worry about when the next surgery is going to start, at least not right now anyway. God has given me a task and as long as He gives me the strength I will continue to serve in this capacity. Thank you, all for your continued support and prayers.
