July 24, 2012 - Quick update

I know it has only been a couple of days, but I wanted to let everyone know that Jason did get out of the hospital, again today, and he is back in his house. There was some excitement with the "new" wound care nurse, as she made a few mistakes in changing the dressings, but Jason was able to handle it and everything got done well, in the end. Jason actually told them to, "...get her out of my room and find me someone who knows what they are doing!" And, knowing Jason, my guess is it wasn't in a nice pleasant voice. He is a Marine after all.

Anyway, things seem to be going well for him right now and he is getting used to being on his own. We let the girls talk with Daddy, twice today, and they thought that was pretty exciting. I think Jason enjoyed it too. We were going to be setting up SKYPE, but there were a couple of technical glitches (Jason's laptop doesn't have a microphone) so it will have to wait until tomorrow. Take care and stay positive and please do keep Jason and his family in your prayers. Thank you, for the continued support and caring.

  1. Thanks for the update! Will definitely keep stopping by to see if there are new updates!
    Continuing to lift up prayers!
    Psalms 55:16-18, 22 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. (22) Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

  3. Maybe when he has a new nurse, he can ask for her to be supervised the first time, so he won't end up yelling at her. She is, after all, only trying to help him, and his wounds are probably different than anything she has seen. Also, you were guessing it wasn't a nice voice because he is a Marine. Actually, the Marines I know are extremely polite to women. I doubt you were trying to insult the Marines. It is more likely that it was just a moment of frustration. Good luck on the road to recovery!

  5. Jason and George,

    My name is Mark Desens (Col USMC and former CO, 26th MEU). I was able to visit you a few times while your were in Bethesda Naval Hospital. I was out of the Country for the first few months of the year and am glad to find you at home in California upon my return. You have shown terrific courage and strength of will over the past year and have my eternal and profound respect. Best of luck as you continue your recovery and life in California.

    Semper Fidelis, MJD
