July 15, 2012

Not much to report on today, other than Jason being uncomfortable last night and not sleeping much until today. I think he is learning more on how to position himself so that he can better deal with the pain, and last night was a major lesson for him. I went for a bike ride, and did some aggressive hill runs. I need to build up the stamina so I can do this up coming ride and those hills are a part of that. The only other thing that really happened today was that Linda and I were able to go see Wicked and the San Diego Civic Center. We enjoyed the play and actually a little sorry we didn't go see it when it was in San Francisco - oh well, we've seen it now.

Tomorrow is a big day for some of the medical teams  here, and we are anxious to hear what comes of those meetings. Jason is pretty sure they won't have anything new and is going to request he get to go back to the Naval Hospital at Bethesda, Walter Reed. Otherwise Monday begins the end of the regular blog updates and a sort of a hand off to Jason, to control more of his own care. I will be providing updates still, just not every day. Thank you for sticking with the blog for all these months, and for all the prayers that have been sent our way. I believe that much of Jason's progress has been directly related to that prayer, and remember keep smiling and stay positive.

  2. George, you have done a fabulous job documenting all of this. We keep Jason in our thoughts and prayers and look forward to more progress in his recovery. He is amazing - so strong - a real hero. I know it won't be an easy transition for you and Linda back to Livermore - all the best.

  3. Dear George and Jason,

    What an incrdeible team the two of you have been over all of these months. Through the good and the bad you have been there by your sons side. I am amazed at Jason's courage and how strong he has been through all of this. I have read every blog that has been written and will miss it. From Bethesda to San Diego, Day Care to Day Care for Stacy and Jackie. Waiting for Linda's (Mom's) visits. You are amazing people. Keep up the good work Jason. Good luck with your continued recovery. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers. The best to all of you.

    God Bless,
