April 19, 2012

Well, today was the big day, for the Ortho visit, and we did get to see the doctor. I guess he kind of gave us an update, in that he said he didn't think there was anything more they could do here. He did want to talk with the plastics folks, and I hope that doesn't take too long, but right now we still don't know what the next step is going to be. The doctor hinted pretty strongly that he thought that something could be done, at another location, just not here. My guess would be that we will be headed back to Bethesda - BUT THAT IS JUST A GUESS, please don't be upset if we find out tomorrow (or Monday) that something else is going to be done. The challenge with this is that there are so many things going on right now that we would need to make some arrangements for all the other stuff going.

There were other appointments today, also, though they were for the regular things that we've been dealing with, for the past several weeks, mainly PT and OT. Actually I was hoping to take advantage of one of the programs that they offer for the C5 guys and their families, and that is wood working. I want to build a meal tray for Jason, so he can eat comfortable while he is in bed. I don't think it would be a difficult thing to build, I just need to find the time to get over there and do it. The class is only open on Wednesday, so I'll have to wait until next week for my next chance.

Not much else to talk about right now. I think I've gotten rid of all the left overs in the refrigerator, and I didn't have to toss anything out. I'll be glad when the girls are back - its easier to cook for the four of us than it is for just the two of us. Thank you, for all your continued prayers and all your support.

  1. These verses give such great comfort! Oh how I pray that there's something that can be done!!!!!
    Psalms 23:1-3 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

  2. It would be so wonderful if someone could remove some of the HO that is causing him so much pain. I pray for relief of pain for Jason and for his family, Clan Ross. It's been an extremely stressful ordeal for you folks. So many people are praying for your family, please remember to pray for yourselves also.

    Happy the laser treatments seem to be working.

    All our best,
