April 3, 2012

Today was a photo shoot day for the girls, and Grandma (Linda) had it all planned out. Nana and Tata (Linda's parents) were there to help, and join in on the fun, with the girls. They got an early start, as they left the house at about 09:00 and went over to The Picture People. They had a 10:00 appointment, and it was good that they had the appointment because the place really got busy by the time they had left, just a little after noon. I wasn't there, as I was with Jason at the Naval base, where he had some appointments to deal with. Linda told me that the taking of the photographs was a bit of a challenge at times; the girls did start to get restless, and she worried that the pictures were going to look poor, BUT, in fact when we went to go pick up the pictures later she was pleasantly surprised. All the shots came out looking great and they were all better than what was anticipated. It was actually kind of funny how Linda went into the mall, to go talk with The Picture People and then how happy she looked when she came out. I was wondering if they had just given them to her for free or something (I was hoping) and she told me that the pictures all came out better than expected.

While the picture taking was going on Jason and I (and Larry) were taking care of things over at the Naval base. Before going, this morning, Jason took a shower and as such I was able to take a good look at his wounds. I was very pleased to see that the left side was looking better and there was some progress on the right side as well. The appointments went well, and before we were done I spoke with the folks that take care of his OT and ended up getting a bunch of appointments for Jason, for the rest of the month. That's the way it usually works, I am able to get the appointments set up and then another type appointment comes along and he has even more appointments to keep track of.

We won't be getting much of an update on the methods that are being reviewed for future treatments for Jason, until much later this month. First there will be a meeting of the different doctors and then they'll let us know what their suggestions are going to be. As soon as I know more I will let you all know. In the mean time, we are here in San Diego, enjoying the visits from family, and spending quality time with the girls.

Thank you, for all your prayers and all the continued support.

  1. Jesus understands suffering. Praying!
    Hebrews 2:9-10 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
