April 17, 2012

Jason's day started off pretty well, in that I made a breakfast of scrambled eggs with ham, hash brown potatoes, toast and juice. On top of that, he ate it all, so that made me happy. We were up and ready to go by 09:30 and the first appointment was at 10:00. We made it there with time to spare, like we usually do. The concern I had today was that he was going to be up in his chair for way too long of a period and that it could possibly result in some damage. While he was at PT I asked him to just lay on the table (its a padded large work out table that the guys use for treatment - there are actually three of them) and then when his appointment started he just stayed on that same table. That was over an hour of being out of the chair. Then the last appointment of the day was with dermatology and again he was out of the chair, so over all he was able to get out of the chair enough that it wasn't too hard on him. Besides, the doctor (dermatologist) was very pleased with the progress of the smaller of the two wounds. He was happy with both, but the smaller one was the one that really catches your eye. We discussed the laser treatment and he wanted to be sure that there wasn't much discomfort associated with it, and Jason said that he was fine.

We left the house at 09:30, and we got back to the house at just a little after 16:00 (4pm). That's a long day for anyone having to deal with appointments. Tomorrow is going to be a much easier day, since there are only two appointments and they are both only 30 minutes long. There is an hour between them, but I think if we get to the second appointment right after the first we will still be able to get both of them done, and back to the house before the second is scheduled to begin. At least that is how I'm thinking.

Once we're back we take care of a few things we need to get done around the house and then probably just lay back and relax. Thank you, for continuing to be there with all the prayers of support and just keeping us in your hearts.

  1. Always in my heart and prayers, prayers and heart. Keep up the good work of staying off those feet and I'm so glad that the laser treatment seems to be working. THAT is very good news.

    Don't forget the cranberry juice. You can use half cranberry and half water mixed together. Very good for those internal organs. Get the kind without sugar. Hold your nose if you don't like the taste.

    Good work guys,

  2. What a long day! The breakfast sounded really good!
    Know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers!
    Psalms 27:7-9 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
