August 2, 2012 - Jason's back in the hospital

Well, Jason was admitted to the hospital again today, only this time it wasn't because he was having any difficulty or feeling extra pain - it was because he is getting ready to head back to Bethesda. There still isn't a solid travel date set, but it will most likely happen before August 6, and I personally think it could happen as early as tomorrow. His spirits are high and he is feeling pretty positive for the trip, and he is confident that they girls are being taken care of. They are with us, Grandma and Grandpa, and will be staying with us for at least the next couple of weeks, and then we will all get together to determine what is going to be happening. We may end up keeping them with us for the entire stay, but that has yet to be determined.

We have been calling and Skyping with Jason for the past few days, and the girls really enjoy getting a chance to talk with Daddy. It is even better with Skype, and they get to see Daddy. Today they had to settle for just talking since Jason didn't have his system set up yet, but if he is still there tomorrow we will once again be able to look at each other.

I have to admit that this next step for Jason's treatment is tough for me, especially with the fact that I am not with him. It is good to be back home and getting to sleep in my own bed, but I have been through so much of the recovery it is really hard to just let go. It is the right thing to do, and I know it, so I'm happy to be able to call him regularly. It is also good to get reestablished back at home and Linda is happy about that - we're actually sleeping together again... ;-)

Again, I'm going to close with a thank you, for all the continued prayers of support and for all the positive feelings that have been coming our way.


  1. Oh what comforting words! Praying so very hard that the trip and surgery is a huge success!!!!!
    Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

  2. You guys are great parents and great grandparents. You have kept such a remarkable journal and I can't imagine the feelings you must be experiencing right now not heading back to Bethesda with Jason, but knowing it's the right thing to do.

    All the best. Hopefully, hopefully, we'll be able to see him if we get the chance to go to Walter Reed this month.

  3. I know the outcome will be positive from his trip to Bethesda. You and Linda are helping Jason so very much. I do look forward to updates on this next chapter of his healing.

    Be strong!

    Always my hero, you are in my daily prayers Jason, know that.

    I'm praying for George too.

    All my best,
    Karen & Rob
    Livermore Friends
