April 10, 2012

Another day, another appointment... Okay, maybe a few appointments. It started out with just one and ended up with a couple more; funny how that happens. The good side is that Jason now has some PT (Physical Therapy) sessions set up again, and I think that is one of the areas he misses. The OT (Occupational Therapy) is good and he likes the folks there, its just that he wants to do more. Then there is the balance needed so that he doesn't over do it, as we know where that ended up last time. Jason is feeling pretty good with how things are going, though it would be nice if the progress were a little faster. Sometimes it seems that progress just isn't paying attention to what he wants, and we just need to work on our patience, rather than just being a patient (pun intended).

We got to the hospital and to his first appointment, and while he was taking care of that I was doing my best to take care of a couple other things. We had borrowed a DVD from the YMCA (Cinderella) for the girls, and now that they are gone for the next two weeks we don't need the DVD. Besides, they saw it about 10 times and I was getting kind of tired of it. I need to find another video for them for their next stay with us... maybe a couple of them. The other errands took me over to a couple of other places and then I was back to C5, where Jason was still at his appointment. Actually, I was only gone for about 20 mintues, so I just sat and read emails and a magazine.

We went over to PT to set up some appointments and Dawn, the Therapist, suggested that she could work with Jason right there. She was free for the next hour so she did a few things with Jason, including an assessment. After that we went over and made sure all the other appointments were correct and then we headed back home. I always check to see how Jason is doing when we leave and he said he needed to get back to the bed so he could get off his feet. He stayed in bed the rest of the day, and is still there now. Aside from dinner, where he watched some T.V., he enjoys playing the video games.

Tomorrow we have an early appointment so we'll need to get going a little sooner than we have in the past. The good news is that we should still be back to the house at about the same time as we were today. I don't think we have any other things to do, at least not right now. I may go for a bike ride tomorrow afternoon, just to get out of the house for a little bit, or I may spend some time with the job search. The search is going kind of slow, so I'm thinking that I may need to look for another method of finding a position. Something will come, I just don't know what it is just yet.

Thank you, for all your support and prayers. Please keep in mind those guys who are still dealing with difficult issues, and for all those who are still in harms way.

  1. These words give such comfort! I'm always here praying hard for your family! Adding prayers about the job search!
    Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
