Okay, for all those who have been wondering - Jason and family weathered the storm quite well. The "southern" sections of this latest hurricane went through the Maryland area, and Bethesda got soaked pretty good. However, it wasn't anywhere near as wet as New York or other parts North (and East). When I spoke with him yesterday and today he seemed liked it was no big deal, and that all he noticed was heavy rain. Of course, when I spoke with him today, he had just gotten back from one of his "procedures" and he was still quite groggy from the anesthetic he had been given. I asked him about the girls and he said they had been in earlier and that Bridgette had to get them back to the room so they could lay down, since they were getting kind of cranky. My guess is that with all the bad weather they are not getting a chance to even go outside and are starting to feel a bit of the cabin fever.
We are looking forward to going out to see him and the family next month, so Linda and I are both feeling a bit anxious. Funny how I feel more anxious about going out than I did about the hurricane coming to the area. I guess I just basically knew he was going to be safe where he was, and that the Naval Base and Hospital were both on high ground, with their own power supply. I continue to pray for him, though and thank you all for all your prayers and support.
