Well, today was supposed to be the first day of me totally stepping away from supporting Jason's needs for his recovery. It didn't quite work that way. I asked him if he had contacted Maxim (the company contracted with) and he said he had sent them a text message last night letting them know he needed someone here by 06:30. By 07:30 I had gotten his breakfast; helped him get his clothes together; and, assisted him in getting out of his bed. There was no transportation so I took Jason to his appointments and it happened to be the same time we needed to get the girls to day care, so that was no big deal. The challenge was connecting up with the Maxim folks. It took five phone calls and three trips back to the house before we were back on track. It was also noon time, so at least they were there to help with his lunch. Jason was feeling pretty good today, so that was a big plus, as well as very helpful in getting beyond the frustration of their stumbles.
Tomorrow we are again looking to find transportation and the Maxim folks here in time to get him to his first appointments, and again it will be about the same time we are targeting getting the girls to day care. I hope it goes better than today, though I am a realist and expect some goofs. I guess it is a good thing we're staying around for another few days, otherwise Jason might find it a bit of a challenge to eat. The good thing is that he does have the Medic Alert system now, so if he does find himself alone and in need of help, he can get it with a push of a button.
Take care and stay positive - I'm expecting to hear something from the doctors tomorrow - probably through Jason - about what they think should be happening next. I am also hopeful that we'll find out about if/when they want to get him out to Bethesda for the pre-op work. Thank you, all for continuing to pray for Jason and for providing the support.
