May 28, 2012 - Memorial Day

Today was a good day for this household - Jason was able to get up and go out to breakfast with the family, and enjoy being out and about for at least a little while. We were only out for a little more than an hour, and he needed to get back down when we got home. That was okay though, as we had a good time together and nobody had to do the cooking. Linda and I took the girls shopping and then a little later Jackie went down for a nap and Stacy played in the back yard and rode her tricycle. The new table and umbrella that Linda's parents bought for the girls, was put together (by Grandpa) and they were very pleased with it (the grownups have their own table with umbrella, and now the girls do).

A couple of guys that worked with Jason over in Okinawa dropped by and visited for a couple hours. It is always good when his friends come by because he just notches his energy level up and he nearly forgets about his injuries. A little later Linda had to get packed up and ready to go back up to Livermore, though we're already planning for the next visit. She said she wants to come back down for father's day, and that would be a real nice thing, as far as I am concerned. I wanted to get her to the airport with plenty of time and just as we were getting ready to go I couldn't find my keys. I started looking everywhere I could think of. We already had the girls in the van, so Linda had to stay out there with them, and that meant I was looking by myself. It took me a few minutes to find them (they were stuck down in the recliner - apparently fell out of my pocket) and then finally got going to the airport. I was now going to have Linda at the airport with less than an hour before her flight, and because it is Memorial Day I "knew" the traffic was going to be crazy. I was wrong - We made it to the airport and we were able to stop close to the entrance she needed and though she couldn't stop and window shop, she still had plenty of time.

Tomorrow Jason has a few appointments, and they start early, so we will be heading out just a little after 08:30. I am looking forward to the opportunity to speak with the doctors, and hope they can provide us with some answers about why there is increased pain. More importantly I hope they are able to provide some ways that Jason can work to reduce the pain level again. Anyway, that's it for the day, and I just want to thank you, all for all your continued support and for your continued prayers.

  1. It sounded like a possible "senior moment" with those car keys, but it wasn't!! Sounds like a wonderful weekend for your family. Glad to hear it.

    Remembering the Military today and so grateful for their service. Thank you George and Jason for your service to our country. I'm happy for you all that you have a nice patio set there for all. It's nice to be outside and enjoy the nice weather!

    Thank you again for all you have done. Have a good evening and day tomorrow, friends.

    PS Great news, Giants won!

    All our best,
    Karen & Rob
    Livermore Friends

  2. Praying!
    Psalms 18:30-32 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
