Good day today, but maybe that was because Jason really didn't have any scheduled appointments. We were able to get a few things accomplished that we've wanted to get done. We went up to 4E to pick up a couple of simply things needed (easier than trying to go through having them ordered - especially when only one or two things are needed). Then we went over to the inpatient PT room, and stopped by to see some of the folks that had worked with Jason in the past. It has been awhile since they had seen each other so it was kind of nice, almost a reunion of sorts. After that we headed on down so that Jason could get his hair cut. I guess since I got mine cut he wanted to get his cut too...;-) okay, maybe not, he just needed a hair cut.

On our way over to building 62 we happened on Sherri Beck (President of Wounded EOD Warriors) and so we stopped and visited for a few minutes. She was actually on her way over to 62 as well, so eventually we all walked over to the building together. She was getting ready to buy lunch of a bunch of the guys, and their families, or NMAs, so we told her we would join them later. Jason had some business up on the 2nd deck (floor), and that didn't take very long. We went back down to have lunch with Sherri and there were several other people there also. I was happy to see Jason talking and joking with the other guys, as it helps me to realize that his mental and spiritual self is healing up very well, and our focus is to continue to work on the physical aspect of his healing.

Speaking of his healing, Jason did take a shower today and we changed out the bandages, and the area was looking better. I'm pleased with the progress, in just the short time I've been working with him, and I hope it continues. We will be headed up to more appointments tomorrow, so I'll get a chance to ask more questions and perhaps put more information into this blog, tomorrow. Take care and stay positive - Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers.

    Know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers!
    Psalms 27:7-9 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
