May 13, 2012

Had a great day today. We got up and had breakfast, and then all of us went to church. The message was about forgiveness, and just seemed very appropriate. Jason is feeling like he is making progress, and his wounds are looking pretty good, though the smaller one seems to have stopped shrinking (the bigger one has not). The one thing that troubles me some is that he doesn't seem to be able to be in his chair as long as he used to, without the level of pain starting to go up more quickly. I will be speaking with his doctor tomorrow about that and see if they have any new information to share. I am aware that there is supposed to be another of those meetings this coming week, so I am hopeful that something is going to be shaking free.

Otherwise we spent the rest of the day at home. Jason took a pretty good nap this afternoon (I actually got a short nap in). Then this evening I spent a little time on the web, catching up on the news and then I was going to start reading a new book, Special Operations by Oliver North, when I received a call from a close friend, Larry Soares. He told me that 60 Minutes (the TV show) was airing a segment on Gary Sinise and his efforts to build the Wounded Warriors homes. A short while later I received a text message from Bob Hammer, telling me the same thing. I guess some folks wanted me to see it... ;-). Anyway, I had Jason turn it on too, so we could both see it and it was really cool. We saw a bunch of folks we knew, and places we've been to, as well as it high lighted all the great work that Mr. Sinise is doing for some of these guys. I hope some of you were able to catch it.

Tomorrow we need to get over to the appointments, but not until late morning, so that makes it easier for us to get over and see some of the doctors earlier. One week from tomorrow Stacy will begin going to the Day Care on the Naval base, and Jackie is being transferred at the same time. This is going to make it a whole lot easier for us, and Jason is particularly happy about it. We went over to the Child Development Center (CDC) last week, and Jason likes what he saw, as did I. Let's hope that this is the start of a great week and things only get better. Thank you, for all your support and prayers, and keep in mind those that working so hard to help these guys, people like Gary Sinse and others.

    Praying!
    Psalms 5:1-3 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
