September 1, 2012

Today is the first of September, so it seems like a good time to provide an update on Jason's progress, and just a general idea of how he's doing. He had his surgery; he spent his time in the ICU; he moved back up to the 4th floor; and now he is working with the medical team to get a good balance on the pain management. I say balance because it is a balance of the amount of medication he will be taking vs. the level of pain as he regains comfort. He is getting better but still seems to be a bit too strongly influenced by the drugs to maintain a good conversation, though we are hopeful that tomorrow it will be close to normal. The girls would really like to have a good skype call with Mommy and Daddy. We are trying to pull together plans for getting the girls back out to Bethesda, and towards the middle of September is when we were looking to have it done.

Thank you all, for all the continued support and prayers - even if I'm not updating every day... ;-)

  1. Thanks for the update! Glad he's doing so well!
    Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers so very much!
    John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
